Changing PU in Luke III Questions

Changing PU in Luke III Questions

Hello, Im wanting to change out the Transition pickup in my LIII. I know there are active electronics in the wiring. Is it as simple as changing out the leads of the pickups?

Also, any recomendations on pickups? I will explain what Im not liking in the Transition Bridge specifically. The low end “feels” soft and a bit squishy if that makes senses. There also seems to be a bit of “furr” in the characteristics of distorted tones.

I like clarity and tightness in a pickup. Hot Paf is what I tend to favor.

Thanks in advance for any insight.
