hello UG ive got an Ibanez Rg321 and I gotta say I love it , but it came with stock pick ups and i wanted to try adding some better pick ups for them.... I had my eye on this Squier deluxe hot rails guitar that i get to play on when i go for guitar lessons during the week. but i dont have enough info on the hotrails to make a decision

plan is either to buy the deluxe hot rails (already has seymour duncan pickups), or Look for cheap but good pick ups something versatile

lol But as of right now im not sure how the deluxe hot rails stands against the ibanez rg321 i mean their both about the same price

How in the hell did your second post go BACK in time?

Anyways, don't buy pickups from Squier, if your going to buy aftermarket pickups, buy from a good pickup brand like Seymore Duncan or DiMarizo. And I would just put some new pickups in your Ibanez.

3 Hotrails: $240

Squier Deluxe Hotrails: $280

...?

Though those are the cheaper "Duncan Designed" hotrails on the guitar.

im confused. do u want new pickups or a new guitar with better pickups? the squier has duncan designed pickups, which arent as good. if you want new pickups, real seymour duncan rails are amazing. you can get them pretty cheap used. if you want something cheaper, look at GFS pickups. if you want a new guitar, you will have to be more specific as to what you are looking for.

i think they are roughly $70 new, about $45ish used. well worth it though. they are very strong and very balanced.
