LTD’s Viper Series offers the cool double-cutaway look that’s perfect for metal, hard rock, blues, and so much more.

Even with its surprising low cost, the Viper-256 still offers great features like ESP Designed LH-150 humbuckers with a coil split function on the push-pull switch, LTD tuners and TOM bridge/tailpiece, and a fast 3 pc. mahogany set neck with a 24-fret roasted jatoba fingerboard.

Hey everyone. I’m really desperate for a Viper 256 in Military Green Satin but I cannot seem to find one in stock anywhere. I’m based in the UK and I was wondering if they were still manufactured and whether or not to expect a restock any time soon. Thanks.

I just bought one. Really great guitar. Fantastic playability! 

I want to know what do you think are the best mics for a future upgrade, kepping a similar tone (that is fantastic) , but upgrading a little bit the sound.

Bonjour, je possède un ltd VIPER 200fm et j'aurais souhaité connaître sa côte argus. Guitare que j'ai acquis neuve en 2011 à 459€.

I really like this body/hardware color scheme it's basically the exact same as the JTV 89, I just wish there were other models that had this color.

Todd B. ESP

HI Anthony, Yes this is a classic color that we've typically limited to the EC and Viper body styles. It's not common to find this look on any of the other models.

Anthony C.

I'd definitely be interested in a viper if it was in the LTD Deluxe range if one ever comes up in the future. Thanks!

Todd B. ESP

Hey Anthony, Thanks for bringing that up. We haven't had a Viper-1000 guitar available in a while so that's a great idea.

I love this color, but I'm not a huge fan of the Viper shape personally. Is there any possibility that an EC-256 with this same finish could be coming in the future?

Todd B. ESP

Hi XYN, There are currently no plans for this model, but thanks for your suggestion.

XYN

I just checked Guitar Center, and they have an EC-256FM with Black Cherry Burst. Not the same, but I do like it.

Todd B. ESP

Hi XYN, Yes we do a See Thru Black Cherry and See Thru Black Sunburst EC-256 for GC.
