LTD’s Viper Series offers the cool offset double-cutaway look that’s perfect for metal, hard rock, blues, and so much more. With the Viper-256, you get the classic vibe of a mahogany-bodied, 24.75” scale rock and roll machine. Even with its surprisingly low cost, the Viper-256 still offers great features like a set-neck construction with a fast three-piece mahogany neck, roasted jatoba fingerboard with 24 extra-jumbo frets, a set of high-output ESP Designed LH-150 humbuckers with a coil split function on the push-pull switch as well as LTD tuners and an LTD TOM bridge & tailpiece.

I purchased this exact same model but mine comes with a black headstock instead of the matching white displayed here. Why is this?

Will there be a black version of this guitar?

This was discontinued in 2016 in favor of the baritone version

Available in Canada yet? If so, luck finding it on the west coast.

Hello Tom, This model should be available but you would need to contact your local distributor. Here is a link to our distributor page:    (I also have passed your request to our international sales team). Thank you for informing us so we can look into this matter.
