White: Pickups: Duncan Designed
Is one pickup better than the other? I've noticed on most YouTube videos almost everyone has purchased the trans red. Are the Rockfield Mafia pickups better than the Duncan pickups?
Also, why do manufactures to this? I've seen so many times where the supposedly the same guitar is for sale and the black will have Duncan pickups but the same guitar in red will have EMG. Is there some sort of reasoning behind this?
Any insight into this would be greatly appreciated.

Sooo … I 'believe' the dilly-o on your question is as follows :
BC Rich owns the 'Rockfield' pickup name, and it's to my understanding that they are discontinuing the line. So, any new models will have the Duncan Designed pickups.
That said – it's not a matter of what's better, it's a matter of what's available at the time of build. (BTW – older red models will have the Rockfields, newer red models will also have the DD, like the newer white models).
My personal opinion – I like Rockfield pickups, so given which pickup – I'd choose the Rockfields. However – I wouldn't necessarily choose the guitar over the pickups that come installed. Remember – you can always change pickups, but you can't change the color of the guitar …
Hope that helps some
