Re: Stock pups gotta go!
Don't knock those Korean guitars. They are of really nice craftsmanship. Just the labor to build them is super cheap, and the wood is easy to get out in the far east, like in the Vietnam jungles and stuff. I have an RG320, and it kicks ASS! I did change the pickups from the stock powersounds (PSND's) to Dimarzio Tone Zone and Air Norton, and it sounds better, but it didn't really sound too bad to begin with. If you like the way your guitar looks/plays/feels/sounds, who cares if it was made in Korea, USA, or MARS! It's a good one, so love it! And the price is right.
