Correct. I elected to jettison the Ric-o-sound as I don't want/need it, and just went with one input(output) jack and a dummy jack for the other jack. I also wanted to simplify things so I can do my own electronics work on the bass from now on if ever needed.

I also found that I don't like 4 knobs on a bass. I found myself constantly rechecking them. I like 2 only. So, after playing my Ric (this was my first) for a while I decided what configuration was best for me and did this.

This all started because the stock single coils pups were outrageously noisy. I figured I'd replace with the Humbuckers and just wire it all the way I wanted it to be.

I am very happy with the looks/sound/playability of my modded 4003. It is my favorite bass.

I like the look of your Pickguard and how you positioned the two knobs.

Thanks. It is a WD with beveled edges.
My tech picked the positioning of tge controls based on my description. Originally I wanted more triangular shape to them like a 4000. But tech did it this way and they fall right under my hand.

I want to get a clear guard next to show off more of the burst.
