Yes, invert the phase of part B, whilst making sure it is perfectly lined up, timing-wise. Play both simultaneously. Bounce.

Different EQ (in particular, though to a lesser extent - other processing, such as harmonic distortion...) having been applied to A and B will interfere with your ability to completely null the instrument in question.
