Any guitar can shred, those especially with a pickup change.

it all depends on what feels good for you.
for example i hate Jackson necks they just suck for me but look at how many people play them and love Jacksons...

It all depends on what you like the feel of the best...

That depends on the person and where you want to be playing on the guitar neck. If you are shredding on low frets then a short scale will make the guitar seem faster. If you are playing on high frets then a longer scale will make it faster. If your hands are big you will probably want a fat neck, if your hands are small you will probably want a thin neck. There is not "fast neck" and "slow neck" there is only what works for you.

A lot of people play lead on Explorers. Upper fret access is actually better than on Les Pauls, actually. I don't see why anyone couldn't shred on one.

You misread my post. I said upper access on Explorers is better than on Les Pauls.
