If I plan on changing the pickups to diff dimarzios as soon as I get it, should I jsut get a cheaper model like this one http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Ibanez-RG4EXQM1-Quilted-Maple-Top-Electric-Guitar?sku=519785

Or would I get a better tone if i spent more? I know this soun ds like astupid question, but im wondering since everyone has been saying pickups really change the tone of the guitar drastically that if i put top of the line dimarzios in, then this guitar would sound as good as the top rg's.
MY Setup
carvin v3 full stack 100 watt all tube power
a 1981 carvin (m-22 pickup) great tone
Rack Setup
carvin compressor
carvin fx 2
BBE Sonic Maximizer
Rocktron Noise Gate
furman power conditioner

i used to be an ibanez fanboy.......but there is just no excuse for such sorry pickups even for stockers, and the trems are made from a mix of silly putty and tinfoil.....shame on you ibanez!
