i was thinking about getting one eventually, and i was wondering if the pickups were good? i was thinking about a razorback.

Honestly, through an MG, it wouldn't matter what the pickups are like.

Get a better amp. Your guitar is fine.

Is this the MG we're talking about?

Compare it to a valve combo.

Also, through a solid state amp like your MG, different pickups (if you're considering getting a Dean and changing the stock ones) would not sound much better.

A friend of mine has one and I like to play on it. It's light, has a fast neck and the pickup (Dimebucker) is quite good. I'm not a huge fan of the shape however, cool when you first see it but not so much after a few months.
You might want to look at Jackson however, you could get a better guitar at the same price which looks even more metal

I own 3 Deans (including my g/f's ML XP) and getting ready to purchase a 4th (79 ML/F). Once you get into the $600 range the pickups get really decent and playability is outstanding. I personally don't care for the razorback, but that's just my taste. It's a quality instrument.

Some dean pickups are ok but the best are in the mid-upper price range, IMO I love Deans, all the haters on here most likely never played one. If you want a Dean than man get a Dean you will love it, NEVER get a guitar just becuase of what some people say, listen to me "Try It before you buy It and you will never have problems!"
