I was just wondering what the process would be to remove the plastic rim around the pickups and placing them back into the guitar without the rim. (Like the Washburn WM526 or JB Brubaker's (August Burns Red) Ibanez.)

Is it as simple as just taking the rim off and re-entering the pickups or is there a specific process to achieve this?

Yeah, the screws that hold the pickups in the guitar are in the ring. You can probably drill a new hole into the guitar itself and "woodmount" the pickup, but it'd probably be ugly.
