Changing pickups on a RGA42FM?


I'm planning on buying a RGA42FM, which comes equipped with IBZ LZ3 active pickups.

I'd like to put Dimarzios or Duncans on this guitar. Do you think I'm going to run into any kind of problem?
I know that some active pickups are slightly bigger than traditional passive ones. What about the IBZ LZ3? Are they standard size?

I saw one the other day that was stripped down to bare wood and had passives put in it. The only thing is you're going to have to change everything in. Pickups, pots, maybe even switch.
