Can I turn the iTunes EQ on/off using AppleScript?

I found a way to change the preset, but not turn the EQ on or off.

Here's an iTunes Equalizer ON-OFF Script that toggles, so you can turn on/off just with the call of one script

tell application "iTunes"
    if EQ enabled is false then
        set EQ enabled to true
    else if EQ enabled is true then
        set EQ enabled to false
    end if
end tell
