Re: Sustainer how much hacking?

Depends on the guitar model, the sustainer model, the person installing it, etc.

Some people have managed to fit the electronics and battery in the existing route under the pickguard and thus did essentially no changes to the guitar. Normally, you can expect to do some routing and drill some holes at a minimum. In any case, if you have a qualified technician doing the work, no "damage" should be done.
