    A pickup is a piece of magnet with copper wire wound on it... It is the electromagnetic device that converts the vibrations of yr strings to AC signals that are further amplified or processed by the amp/processor.
    They come installed within the guitar... Tell yr musical preferences, so dat we can suggest the best suited guitar fr u... N is d budget of 20k meant only fr the guitar or includes apm n effects too?
    N whr r u based?

    given your preference for music

    hindi and some rock

    you are not too much into metal so dont go for ibanez 170 or 270 though first time when you will play them the charm of electric guitar will tell you its amazing ( and they are ) the sound is metal all the way.

    You should go for something like which has a HSS ( humbuckers-single-single coil ) format.

    Go to a shop try to your hearts content and look for the warm sounding guitar something that has sound close to acoustic and one that can do some rock stuff once you go the humbucker setting.

    hope this helps
