Shred like a demon with this Viper-style axe

Nothing says "let's rock" like an ESP Viper-style guitar. When you pick up a LTD Viper-1000 EMG, you'll know exactly what we mean. The LTD Viper-1000 EMG's offset waist gives you the kind of comfort that lets you play for hours, whereas the double-cutaway design provides easy access to the upper frets both over and under the neck.

This set of EMGs practically define the sound of modern metal

When ESP decided to give the LTD Viper-1000 EMG this particular set of EMG active humbuckers, they had nothing but pure metal on their minds. The EMG 81 at the LTD Viper-1000 EMG's bridge is largely responsible for the majority of metal riffs you can think of, providing the blazing hot and knife-edged tone you need to cut through the mix, plus the driving low end you need for maximum impact. The liquid smooth sound of an EMG 85 at the neck completes the picture, giving you the added liquid sustain you need to pull off epic solos.
