    Sure, you can swap anything you like in there

    In terms of wiring, it depends if you're planning to split it or not. If not, it doesn't need to be wired to the silent circuit. Just wire it to ground, connect the coils, and hot to the switch.

    Ok, great and thanks for info!
    Is there a wiring diagram somewhere to find?

    You can email Daniel- customerexperience@ernieball.com, he can forward you one. But it's pretty straight-forward under the hood.

    Should be clear cut, I am in the process of adding a JB hot rail to the bridge of my SSS, the pickup should come with wiring instructions

    I've been considering the same in one of mine actually, so I'd love to see a pic. Good luck.

    Replaced mine with a Seymour Duncan ssl5 (Gilmour pickup). It is not a humbucker but handles gain very nicely! I really dig it! Swap was a breeze.

    I have a ssl1 x2 and ssl5 in a guitar and must admit that ssl5 can handle some gain in a very nice way.
