Can any pickups work on any guitar? probly a stupid ? but i cant figure it out lol
#2
In theory, yes. You might need to cut a few holes though, and certain pickups sound better on some guitars than others.
If you could blow up the world with a flick of a switch,
Would you do it?

If you could make everybody poor just so you could be rich,
Would you do it?

With all your power,
What would you do?

I'm not sure what exactly you're asking. In theory, with the correct setup, any pickups can work on any guitar.
But will it sound good? Not necessarily. That depends on the type of guitar, menaing body wood type, neck wood, fretboard wood, type of genre you're going for...
A 'correct' installation of pickups depend on several things: pickup routing, pickguard, existing electronics (pots and switches).

Pickups won't change your sound THAT much. Especially not if you're still playing through a practice amp (Just making an assumption.). Best bet for achieving better tone would be to get a new amp...

Don't waste your money on a Fender G-DEC, it's not a very good amp. You'll be a lot better off if you buy yourself a nice tube combo.

Then whats a good amp for that price range to get a good Pop-punk/punk sound actually pretty much any rock would be nice

An Epiphone Valve Junior would be nice and cheap. They go for like 100-ish.
You could get the head version, which is what people here tend to like better, and then get a cab for it.
5 Watts tube is pretty loud, once you have it up all the way. You'd need a pedal to get distortion if you're not gonna crank it all the way.

You could also check out the Vox Valvetronix series, which don't have true tube tone, despite their marketing, but they're still pretty good amps, nonetheless.
