I'm just curious as to how bass pickups are going to work with strings that operate on different frequencies.
There's no basic problem there. Simplistically-speaking, bass pickups will work on all the frequencies that guitar pickups do.
IMO the main difference you will get is a difference in the feel of the instrument, which you may find inspiring - or just awkward.
To get it working as well as possible, you'll probably need to re-do the instrument setup once it has the new string set on.
Is there some other pitfalls to doing this?
overtightening guitar strings - if you tune a guitar string to the same pitch as usual on a longer instrument, you will have tightened it much more.
buying strings that are too short (this is mentioned at the end of the video).
