^GTFO. Go play your spider.

Yes, but we need more info than that. Are you changing them to pickguard mounted on a separate guitar? What kind of guitar is it? What kind of pickups?

ok well its the ibanez rg1570 and seeing as the pickups are mounted to the body i was woundering if u can put a pickguard just over the top of it or do u have to mount the pickups to the pickguard?

The screw holes are the same for most pickups. Exceptions being p90s that are direct mount. So yea a set of single coil or humbuckers can go in rings or a pickguard. As your dealing with direct mount pickups tho where the screw goes thru and into the body there aremnt any threads for regular pickguard screws to go thru. You could put a pickguard over top of them but would need to make some holes if you wanted to be able to adjust the pickups without taking the guard off.

^I'll sum what he said up. The screws to mount the pickups go through the pickguard and into the body.
