The shorter Allen head poles and Alnico 5 bar magnet bring a nice crisp clarity to the high end, while keeping the low end tight and articulate. It’s great for all types of rock, blues, and metal, and works well in any humbucker-equipped guitar with medium to warm tone. The Full Shred neck is designed for players who want maximum clarity from their neck position. This pickup also uses an Alnico 5 bar magnet and short Allen screw poles to create a tighter, brighter neck humbucker tone than ever before. It’s bright and clear enough to breathe life into the middle position of a dual-humbucker guitar, giving it an almost Tele-like quality. The Full Shred neck gets along beautifully with the Full Shred bridge, but can also be combined with one of our high-output bridge pickups like the Invader, Duncan Distortion, or Alternative 8. Because the Full Shred has such an articulate voice, it works brilliantly as a 7-string pickup, lending separation and distinction to even the lowest and most distorted riffs. Also available in Trembucker spacing (for symmetrical positioning under the strings of guitars with a tremolo or wide-spaced hardtail bridge), the Full Shred medium-output humbucker pickup is hand built in our Santa Barbara, CA, factory, uses an Alnico 5 bar magnet, nickel-silver bottom plate, 4-conductor lead wire for multiple wiring options, and is vacuum wax potted for squeal-free performance.
The Full Shred bridge pickup is a bright, medium output humbucker with a tight low end, and scooped mids. The neck model is the most articulate, bright-sounding neck-position humbucker that we make—great for adding clarity to any guitar.
