Hey guys! I'm currently thinking about buying 2 sets of new pickups for my Kiesel Vader 7 and Kiesel Zeus Multiscale 8. I'm thinking about getting a set of ionizers for the 7 string and a set of eclipses for the 8 string (Dimarzio for both). I've never changed pickups on my own before but I know how to use a soldering iron. The advice I'm looking for pertains to guitars I want to put the pickups in. I've read that installing pickups on Kiesel guitars tend to be a little more difficult. Some of the ways I've read to get around the issue is swapping base plates with the lithium pickups already installed. Is this something for someone doing this for the first time to be too difficult? I planned on doing this anyway with the 8 string guitar so I could accomodate the pickup angle. Would this work for both guitars to get around any issues I might have? Any other pickup swapping advice is well appreciated as well. TL;DR - I want to swap pickups in my 7 and 8 string guitars but I am not sure if the pickups are "plug and play" in sense without swapping base plates.
