But the Anthem SL's preamp is in the endpin and the UST is hard soldered to the circuit board. You could de-solder it and wire in a connector... but I wouldn't recommend it.
Yes, that's exactly what I would be doing. I de-soldered the Element from the D-TAR pickup. Incidentally, I think D-TAR built a more road worthy product. But, it's not as convenient, nor does it mitigate feedback like the Anthem system. I've soldered on those Baggs preamps before and the solder pads will come off easily ruining the device completely. It would be best avoided by anyone besides good electronics technicians.
