Guitars in the LTD 1000 Series are designed to offer the tone, feel, looks and quality that working professional musicians require in an instrument. If you’re looking for a guitar that’s an instant classic from day one, the Viper-1000M gives you all the elements for the best performances in rock and metal. It offers a great-looking mahogany body with a transparent gloss See Thru Black Cherry finish, allowing the beauty of the wood grain to show through. It uses set-thru construction for easy access to the highest frets, paired with a three-piece mahogany neck. Its Macassar ebony fingerboard includes 24 extra-jumbo stainless steel frets and white pearloid ESP flag inlays, and black binding on the neck and matching-finish headstock. Components on the Viper-1000M include a TonePros locking TOM bridge with string-thru-body, LTD locking tuners, and a set of direct-mount Fishman Open Core Humbucker pickups with push-pull control to activate their multiple voicings.
