    I have a GL Fender jazz, want a bit more fatness, so I bought a set of DeMarzio DP123's.

    Is the replacement process essentially a 1 for 1, or should I do anything differently? This is my first time with this.

    The DP123 is a humbucker.
    So you need to solder the two "inner wires" and isolate them.

    For DiMarzio this means:
    Solder the green DP123 wire where the black wire is now (to housing / GND).
    Solder the red DP123 wire where the white (or yellow) wire is now (HOT).
    Solder the white and black DP123 wire together and isolate them (with tape).

    That's all ...
