Easy! Y'see the black XLR socket at the left of the uppermost 1U panel? That's the input for stereo basses. Wanna change basses? Unplug one and plug in the next - job done. For total flexibility/mind-bending confusion, each of my stereo basses has an added 3-position switch which swaps the pickup channels round or commons them into mono. By using a combination of that switch and the pickup selector switch, I can have:
Pickup A --> Pre-amp A / Pickup B --> Pre-amp B
Pickup A --> Pre-amp B / Pickup B --> Pre-amp A
Pickup A --> Pre-amp A / Pickup B OFF
Pickup A --> Pre-amp B / Pickup B OFF
Pickup A OFF / Pickup B --> Pre-amp A
Pickup A OFF / Pickup B --> Pre-amp B
(stop me if I'm boring you...)
Pickup A --> Both pre-amps / Pickup B OFF
Pickup A OFF / Pickup B --> both pre-amps
Both pickups commoned in mono --> Pre-amp A
Both pickups commoned in mono --> Pre-amp B
Both pickups commoned in mono --> Both Pre-amps!
My active Mania bass is mono only, so I just plug that straight into whichever pre-amp I choose.

Shipping? Just sit in the horn, grab a bass and row like hell.
