    No responses yet, huh? Probably because most players don't do their own installs. If you know nothing about installing pickups, take it someone who does.

    Just for your information, if you want to know about materials, here's what I use to install an LRBaggs Element UST or Fishman Matrix UST (take it with some grains of salt, I may be forgetting somthing):

    Cordless Drill
    Forstner bit, 7/16", I think (and painters tape)
    Reamer
    7/32" drill bit
    Wire stripper
    soldering iron
    rosin core solder
    flux
    Shrink wrap, black
    dial caliper
    String action guage http://www.stewmac.com/shop/Tools/Me...ion_Gauge.html
    electronic tuner
    files and sanding blocks
    electronic volt/ohm meter
    10mm box wrench
    allen wrench (small size)
    amp, cords, etc.
    PPE (personal protective equipment)

    I hope this helps. -Aaron
