What's your amp?
Are you willing to go used?
Do you care whether the pickups are passive or active? (As in do you like to go clean sometimes?)

my suggestion is to block the trem.



buy new pups for it, and put the money into a new amp.

Ahh. alright. Active pickups are (usually) those matte black pickups you tend to see on lots of metal guitars. They also require a battery. They are very high output. If you like to go clean I'd suggest staying away from those.

Do you like the neck shape of your RG and it's just the trem thats pissing you off? If you like it there's an alternative to buying a new guitar. You can block the bridge (tons of tutorials on youtube) It allows for easy tuning changes, but you can't use the whammy unless you unblock it and re-set it up. If you do this you can put the money towards a new amp (which I'm sure half of the comments would reply)

However if you're set on a new axe I would suggest these:
http://guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product/Ibanez-RG3EXFM1-Electric-Guitar?sku=481914 (not sure if those are actives or not though.)
http://guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product/Ibanez-ARX320-Electric-Guitar?sku=518062
http://guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product/Jackson-JS32RT-Dinky-Electric-Guitar?sku=584379 (not actives)
http://guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product/Schecter-Guitar-Research-C1-Standard-Electric-Guitar?sku=584529#used (I've heard tons of good things about this one.)
http://guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product/Schecter-Guitar-Research-S1-Mahogany-Guitar?sku=518145

There's much more too. It's all about your preference. You should pick your faves that you wanna try and then go and do so at a guitar center.
