Question Adding electronics to a CA Cargo travel guitar

I have ordered a CA cargo travel guitar w/o the electronics. Why, you might ask? I was able to save about $200 and was not that impressed with its electronics.

1. If I were to add electronics, what do you think would be the best match for this guitar?
2. Is this a DIY (Do It Yourself) project?
3. If so, is there a video or instruction guide that you might recommend?

Peace,
Rip

Agreed . . . . . I don't now how you could ever add the electronics later.

I guess you could use a soundboard transducer ... like below

or (although it's a LOT more $$$)

Well, CA is able to add it so I assume it can be done aftermarket too - unless CA installs the transducer before the top goes on.

Good point ... I'm sure (pretty sure) there's a way to install a variety of pickups ... but it may be a job for a pro.
