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. 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.

I have one of the clock work  design viper series guitar, I understand that there was only 300 of them made. Just wondering roughly the price of them. It's in excellent condition . Just wondering if they still holding their value.

I am looking at buying one these right. Can you tell me the neck specifications? I want to know the neck thickness at the 1st fret and 12 fret.

Why is there not a Pepper Keenan Signature Viper? You good fuckers at ESP should get him on your roster......

Thanks for the insight Myles!

I got the pleasure of playing an E-ll Viper baritone today and it was fantastic but its a bit out of my price range  the ltd viper-400b looks to hit most of the marks the of its E-ll counter part but the issue for me lies in the emg pickups they just don't seem to have the right feel outside of the nasty dirty tone we all know and love the, cleans left a lot to be desired for myself would it be more beneficial to just go for the viper-201b and mod it to spec?

Carl N.

Hey Justin, this would all depend on you.  If you were going to mod the instrument anyway might as well go with the one that feels better for you.  I'd check out both the 201 and 400 and see which one suits you more.


Waiting for the return of the V I P E R 407!!! Put some  707s on them!!!!! HARD!~!!

Hey g3wdvibes, might be waiting for a bit, we did just update the Viper Black Metal this year to be a 27" baritone scale seven string.
