If my bridge-mount (NG, SG, UK) pickup is too wide to fit properly, can I sand it down just enough to let it lie flat or are there electronics that could be damaged?

It depends on how tight the space is. NG, SG, and UK models can handle slight twisting and having strings pressing into the pickup. You can put the pickup in a slightly twisted position that fits the available space between the saddle and the bridge pins. Sanding is not recommended at all — it will damage the piezo crystal element inside the pickup.
