    Nope you should be just fine.

    In the future, you'll get more/better responses if you post this in the Pickups & Electronics section. The mods will probably move this thread there anyways.

    No you don't need to change you pickups. You will, however, need to add a battery compartment to power the pre-amp. You could phantom power the pre-amp from a remote battery supply.
