Modern rock and metal guitar with Fishman pickups.

The ESP LTD Viper-1000 See Thru Black Cherry combines the classic Viper style of the Japanese traditional company with contemporary features to the perfect electric guitar for modern rock and metal. While the guitar, which is made in set-thru construction, offers excellent playing characteristics thanks to its "Thin and Neck" and stainless steel binding, Fishman Fluence Open Core humbuckers elicit a multifaceted sound from the guitar amplifier, ranging from clean to Overdrive and distortion. A TonePros Locking bridge and LTD Locking tuners complete the equipment of the LTD Viper-1000 See Thru Black Cherry guitar from ESP.

The mahogany neck in "Thin U" profile, glued deep into the body, offers unhindered playing characteristics up to the highest registers.

Solid mahogany guitar in set-thru construction

To achieve a powerful sound and excellent playing characteristics, ESP relies on the proven set-thru construction with 24.75" scale length (628 mm) for the Viper-1000. While the subtle offset styling of the mahogany body promises a perfect balance on the strap and on the thigh, the mahogany neck reaching deep into the body offers unhindered playing characteristics from the highest to the lowest position of the Macassar ebony fingerboard due to the practical "Thin and Profile". Virtually wear-free stainless steel frets also promise buttery smooth string bending that glides like on rails.

ESP LTD Viper-1000 See Thru Black Cherry Body
Fishman Fluence Open Core Classic pickups deliver versatile clean and distortion tones with three distinct voicings.

Fishman Fluence Open Core Humbucker

The electrical tone conversion is handled by two active Fishman Fluence Open Core Classic pickups that combine the traditional look of open humbuckers with tremendous tonal flexibility. While the neck pickup in standard voicing delivers a fluid tone with vocal mids and brilliant highs, the bridge pickup stands for classic Hot-Rod sounds that elicit a juicy Distortion from the amp for tight riffing and scorching solos. With a pull of the Tone knob, both Fluence Open cores deliver the airy vocal tones of classic Fifties humbuckers. In addition, a glassy, transparent single-coil mode is available for both pickups, activated by the Push/Pull switch in the Volume kn ob.

Six LTD locking tuners keep the LTD Viper-1000 securely in tune.

TonePros Bridge and Locking Tuner

Last but not least, ESP equips the LTD Viper-1000 See Thru Black Cherry electric guitar with high-quality and reliable Hardware. On the body, the TonePros Locking Tune-O-Matic bridge, which can be firmly locked on its retaining pins and behind which the strings are fed through the body, not only supports the lively sound character of the electric guitar, but also guarantees exact adjustment of intonation and string action even when using thick string sets and low tunings. On the headstock, LTD Locking tuners also keep the Viper-1000 securely in the correct tuning.
