Swapping pickups on new guitar

This isn't exactly a thread about how to change the pick-ups on a guitar. I replaced my Schecter Omens pick-ups with EMG 81/85s but because of how much I dislike the guitar I'm buying another (was a gift for my 18th).

The next guitar I'm going to buy is the Ibanez RGD421 but it doesn't have a tone pot, instead it has a EQ Toggle switch.

How would I go about switching the stock pick-ups with my EMGs? I'm guessing I'd have to scrap the EQ switch?

I replaced the stock pups of my Ibanez RGA7 with EMGs too. As your guitar it didn't have a tone put but an EQ switch too.

At the moment I put the old EQ switch back in, unconnected to the rest of the hardware. I doubt it would be feasible in the first place to connect it and secondly I barely used it because it did nothing I wanted it to do. I might replace it with an EMG miniswitch later (like an Afterburner or something)

Might have to look into those.
