If its from a cheap BC Rich it isnt going to improve your tone all that much...

Im not sure what you are saying but you want to put a humbucker where there used to be a single coil? Unless your dad has some know-how about this and all the tools you cant do that...

Well, given that your statement is what he means...

The tone isn't going to be improved much. You might get a harder hit with lots of gain but it's not going to be that noticeable. cheap pickups are cheap pickups.

It's not difficult to do though, you would either route the current pickguard to fit a humbucker or buy a replacement pickguard. Other than that, it's minimal fabrication.
