i've been threading a lot recently and have only a few more questions on amps and stuff
i've been told that maybe getting new pickups for my stagg rg would help the output of my guitar and give me more a chuggin sound
i play a lot of different stuff but mostly a day to remember and three days grace
stuff of that nature
i've have been wanting to upgrade my line 6 spider 15 to maybe a 30 or maybe getting a peavy vyper
does anyone know what pickups would work for me

What's your budget for amp, and budget for pickups? You will NOT hear a difference in tone from different pickups through a Spider. It just WON'T happen.

Upgrade the amp before pickups!

Can you get a job? Because I'm seventeen, and bought a Mesa/Boogie a year ago from the cash I earned from lifeguarding. It's a combo amp, and I got it for $750 used. And like the guy above me said, ALWAYS upgrade the amp before the pickups; the Mesa I bought was an upgrade from a Line 6 Spider III, and even though I had to wait a bit before buying a better guitar, that amp made my Epiphone Les Paul sound good.
How much are you willing to spend? If you go to the used section on GuitarCenter.com, they give you a freaking steal on guitars. Look into Schecters; I bought my Schecter Hellraiser with EMGs for about $500 used, and it was practically pristine condition. I'd suggest Schecter guitars since I doubt you'd be able to afford a PRS, and as for amps....used Peavey 5150 or 6505+ run for about $500, and they are perfect for high gain stuff. Mesas run a little higher, usually the lowest price is around $750.
