the title says it all, ive recently got BACK into playing the blues ever since i picked up my starcaster again, and i dont know which would be more cost efficient.

a new guitar from rondo(please specify which model, tele, strat, no les pauls)

or new pickups for my starcaster

EDIT: try to keep it under 150$

Are we talking the $100 starcaster from starter packs? I would DEFINITELY upgrade that. The fret wire is sharp on the sides for Pete's sake. It's literally painful to play

Take the money and save it.

pickups at this stage are not worth it.

While a $150 guitar won't be anything close to an upgrade.

You realise that'll involve a new pickguard.

Rondo guitars are deceivingly good for the money, so it would definitely be a step up from your current guitar.

Yup, I can get one if needed, the ones they have at gc fit mine, I guess I'll just stick to using the neck-mid pickup lol

Oh and to the guy above me I have a les Paul already, but I'm recently discovering how much mud there really is to these pickups... >.<

If you really want... I suppose...

Check out the Guitar Fetish or the Iron Gear pickups then....

Guitar Fetish as they're not too expensive. I generally wouldn't recommend them as I don't find them all THAT special... but pound for pound, they tend to be better than stock pickups.

I felt Iron Gears are generally better value, but shipping can be a byotch.

I wouldn't even throw on something like Seymour Duncans or DiMarzios for a start guitar... unless you know you're gonna disown the guitar and cannibalize its intestines for another guitar.
