Guitars in the LTD 1000 Series are designed to offer the tone, feel, looks and quality that working professional musicians require in an instrument. With the Viper-1000 Baritone, you get the diabolical look of the asymmetrical double-cutaway body shape in a 27” baritone scale guitar, typically tuned a fourth below standard (B-E-A-D-F#-B) for extended low end range for modern rock and metal. It uses set-thru construction for easy access to the highest frets, with a mahogany body and three-piece mahogany neck. Its Macassar ebony fingerboard includes 24 extra-jumbo stainless steel frets and white pearloid ESP flag inlays, and white binding on the neck and headstock. Components on the Viper-1000 Baritone include a TonePros locking TOM bridge and tailpiece, LTD locking tuners, and a set of EMG 60TW-R (neck, splittable with push-pull control) and EMG 81 (bridge) pickups, offering a good variety of powerful, aggressive tones.
