    shak Harrr!

    you are from india i reckon .. welll i guess a piezo elemnt pickup shouldnt cost more than 300-500 rupees ..and the proper accoustic pickup shouldnt cost mroe than 1500 rs ..
    i dunno what you mean by internal or external ... i have seen pickups been installed in the bridges (saddles actually ... piezo elements) .. in the soundhole ... (the clip on ones) .. and thru the end pin .. (the microphone ones..or the fishman stuff) ..
    i would say the peizo ones are pretty good..but you need a proper luthier to fix em ..and the clip on ones are good as well .. they are easy to put-on and you can take em off as well ..
    while the fishman thingies are a bit expensive..i wont recommend that..
