NOTE: Due to ongoing challenges in the global supply chain, instruments purchased from ShopESP that are not currently in stock may take an extended time frame to be delivered.

The LTD 400 Series is designed with the professional performing and recording musician in mind, but is available at a price that even casual players can afford. The asymmetrical double-cutaway shape of the Viper is now available in a 27” scale baritone model with the Viper-400B. If you want the extended lower range that only a baritone guitar can deliver, the Viper-400B delivers, with typical tuning set up for B-E-A-D-F#-B, and heavier gauge strings to allow for optimal string tension and clarity of tone. It includes a 3-piece mahogany set neck on a mahogany body in Black Satin finish, and features Grover tuners, a TOM bridge and tailpiece, and a set of EMG 85/81 direct-mount pickups.

Why the hell would you string it with 13s if you didn't want to play Cannibal Corpse? Why doesn't it come stock with like 9.5s or 10s?

Hi, this guitar uses a 6 string  Baritone tuning (B-E-A-D-F#-B), that is the reason for the heavier strings.

Brandon G.

Are you dumb? This is a 6-string baritone basically made for extreme metal. You would you even buy this if you're gonna put baby strings on it? 


Please forgive me, I was young and dumb. I have matured since then. I also need 11-52s for Eb standard now, so I might genuinely want one of these now anyway : p
