Where do the Full Shred fall on the spectrum? Are they 'heavy metal' pickups, or more in mold of hot classic rock pups, like jb/jazz pegasus/sentient ?

More hot classic rock/metal, think 80s thrash and shred, especially if you consider the JB a hot classic rock pickup. It's very scooped, though.

FWIW I think of the Pegasus and Sentient as more modern, even if they aren't super high output. Something in their voicing and their tight low end doesn't sound very classic to me, though the Sentient especially is very versatile and I like it a lot.

Full Shred is the Custom wind with A5 magnets, and hex polepieces. It's like a Custom 5 without the bass and a bit more articulate.

I just realized I have a Full Shred. I've had it for years and never installed it in anything. I think I'm going to put it in my Ibanez S420.

I'm looking at options for my Ibanez RGT62, it currently has Tone Zone/Air Norton, pretty good, but to me, not ideal. My main interests are classic rock, old school metal.

You could give it a try, personally I might go for the Custom 5 Alnico instead, but they aren't worlds apart.

Have a full shred neck pickup. Nice upgrade for a jazz...even though I do like the jazz too.

I was listening to some clips of the Shredneck, I like it.
