Last week I bought a brand new Ibanez GSR200 specifically as a mod testbed. Yesterday I ordered a set of EMG Geezer Butler signature PJ PUPs. Yesterday I also bought a set of Ernie Ball Slinky flatwounds. I plan on recording a number of demos during the process- bone stock, stock PUPs w/flatwounds, new PUPs w/stock stings, new PUPs w/flatwound strings. All with the exact same mic/cable/cab/amp/etc. In the future I might continue on and swap on-board preamps, nuts, bridges, etc. Why? Boredom I guess. Anyway- Small hurdle I was hoping someone on TB might be able to help with. The stock GSR200 has an on-board "Phat II" module, which according to our forums, is nothing more than a re-branded EMG EXB (EMG Pickups / EXB / Tone Controls / For Bass / Accessories / Electric Guitar Pickups, Bass Guitar Pickups, Acoustic Guitar Pickups). The sticky bit is that the EMG kit is all solderless and the stock Ibanez stuff isn't. It's all a pretty straight-forward swap *EXCEPT* for the "Phat II" (aka EXB) tone control knob, which 1) doesn't show on any of the EMG wiring diagrams and 2) isn't solderless in its stock form factor. Do any of you know how/where to join the on-board preamp/tone-thingy into the EMG solderless setup?

Thanks!
