"You need a Stereo 1/4" Male to two Mono 1/4" female Y cable. Stereo cable end has a Tip-Ring-Sleeve configuration, where Mono end only has Tip-Sleeve. Tip is Bridge pickup, Ring is Neck pickup and Sleeve is signal ground Relative to the Rick-O-Sound jack. Make sure that the cable you get splits the Tip and the Ring signals, with each signal going to its own Mono cable end. You may have to hand build this cable, as I can't seem to find anyone that stocks it. Quality parts are readily available at Radio Shack."
