Shred pups for Ibanez RG517/570?

I'm building an Ibanez. The body is actually an RG517 (which is basically identical to an RG570 but with a silver sparkle finish). The neck will be a Jem neck (AANJ). The body is basswood. The neck is maple with a 24 fret rosewood fretboard. The trem is either going to be an Edge Pro or Edge Lo Pro.
I'm looking at a Tone Zone in the bridge (I'm set on this) and an Air Norton in the neck. I was thinking of going with a Cruiser in the middle but there is a part of me that wants to try something radical like a Super Distortion S. (would this even work?) I'm also considering a Super 2 in the neck with the TZ as an alternate configuration.
I'm building this one to be a solo shred machine.
Any thoughts?

The Seymour Duncan Quarter Pound is awesome in the middle position in my RG470 with Edge Trem. Sounds huge and powerful, but still single coil. I'm really digging it.
