As long as there's a couple clean inches of cable at the pickup a splice wouldn't be any big deal. Might be slightly tricky if it's a piezo pickup because shielding is critical, and shielding is hard to do in a splice.

Well..the Dean Markley Pro-Mag pickups are single coil and very prone to hum in the first place. I also find that the cord that comes with it is very thin, flimsy and not really shielded all that well which doesn't help.
If you are using this type of single coil pickup near a TV or computer monitor the hum will really be magnified.

Thanks for all of your assistance. I especially appreciated the detailed instructions on splicing the cord. Maybe it's time to invest in a permanently mounted pickup or a better quality portable mounted one.
