With the ESP LTD Viper-1000 solidbody electric guitar, you’ve got a gig-ready rock machine in your hands. Playability is fast and precise, thanks to its Thin “U” neck profile and 24 extra-jumbo frets. And the tone is absolutely explosive, served up by Seymour Duncan Sentient and Pegasus humbuckers (with a push-pull control for split-coil tones too). And you can expect excellent tuning stability over long playing sessions, thanks to LTD locking tuners and a TonePros locking TOM bridge. With all this wrapped up in an undeniably menacing double-cutaway body style, the ESP LTD Viper-1000 is a great guitar to hit the stage with.
Exceptional clarity and richness from Seymour Duncan humbuckers
The combination of Seymour Duncan pickups in the ESP LTD Viper-1000 gives you the sonic versatility to switch between heavy riffing and expressive solo lines in a flash. The Sentient humbucker in the neck position is like a traditional PAF humbucker with added harmonic complexity, giving it a voice somewhere between Seymour Duncan’s ’59 and Jazz pickup models. The Pegasus pickup at the bridge features custom-wound coils and Alnico V magnets that deliver impressive clarity and articulation, for excellent string-to-string separation.
TonePros bridge and LTD locking tuners
Players who understand the importance of tuning, action, and intonation will delight in the Viper-1000’s TOM-style TonePros bridge/tailpiece and locking LTD tuners. The TonePros is a common aftermarket upgrade for players looking to enhance their instrument. Its six adjustable saddles provide precise intonation and enhanced sustain for chords and leads. At the other end of the guitar, a set of LTD locking tuners provides slip-free performance, for stage and studio tuning stability you can depend on.
