ESP LTD VIPER-256 Military Green Satin
Manufacturer's ID: VIPER-256 MGS
What we say:
This LTD take on the famous double-cut mahogany guitar is not only impressing to play, it’s a fantastically affordable price!
ESP’s design is more offset and individual than the classic symmetrical look and it’s a very cool update.
This model is on a colour that is very in right now: ‘Military Green Satin’. Lots of guitars meant of ra harder-edged audience are using this sort of colour: it is appropriate and looks great. The headstock is painted to match and there is binding along it and the Roasted Jatoba fingerboard to bring some pleasing visual contrast.
We are pleased to report that this guitar has a set neck: it isn’t a done thing at this price point but by opting for it, ESP have really sealed the quality and value for money stakes. The neck is a Thin U carve, very easy to play and get around.
The pickups are ESP-designed open coil humbuckers and we were happily surprised to find a coil tap toggle in the Tone knob, effectively doubling the available sounds. Sledgehammer brutality is available, as we expected, but so are a few more subtle and ‘pretty’ tones. This is a great addition.
We think the value for money on offer here is spectacular. This is a solid rock guitar with a set neck and a plethora of tones and cool stylings that will work well in a variety of situations.
