So I am looking into getting this pickup/preamp/end pin jack on ebay. It's about $19.00. Here's the link:

Now another thing, I'm looking to get these ebony saddle & nut for ukulele as well. They are $4.00 together. What do you think?

EDIT:
I have found a ebay store in Canada, (Where I live) Which removes the possibility of customs fees. BUT, here's the bad news: It cost $10.00 more (CAD) and shipping is $10.00. SO, instead of originally spending $20.00, I will be spending $40.00. Just to remove the risk of customs fees? Really how much would I be charged if I got tagged with customs? Is it really worth it? Who knows I might be able to drive to the seller. Who knows...

So Instead of the link to the one in Hong Kong, Here is the link to the Canadian ebay store: http://www.ebay.ca/itm/SPIRAL-PIEZO-CABLE-PICKUP-EQ-AND-PRE-AMP-UKULELE-/400170692495?pt=Guitar_Accessories&hash=item5d2c082f8f

So should I get them?
Should I install the pickup/preamp myself or get an expert to do it?
Who knows how to change a nut on a ukulele?
