ESP VIPER-401 BLK Black

Description

The Viper-401 from ESP is a great first upgrade guitar that was clearly built for metal. The 400 series, as a whole offers you a step up from the basic entry level models without hurting your wallet.

The LTD Range brings you everything thats great about ESP at a more affordable price so everyone can enjoy the great sound of a quality guitar.

ESP Guitars are great for any style of music but where they really excel is Hard Rock and Metal. When you pick up an ESP theres a reassuring heft to them, hot heavy as such, just solid. They can take a serious beating and are perfect for touring and regular gigging. This model, ESP's take on a classic sweeping double cut, is meant for hard rock and metal, it doesn't really do jazz (it can but its more at home with high gain, high power styles)

EMG 81 and 85 pickups

One of the most popular EMG’s, the 81 is the one that started a revolution. Utilizing powerful ceramic magnets and close aperture coils, the tone was designed with detailed intensity, incredible amounts of high end cut, and fluid sustain. Traditionally used in the bridge position of your guitar, this humbucking pickup will make your leads slice right through even the densest mix. When used in both neck and bridge positions the sound can only be described as blistering. The 85 is one of EMGs first pickups and is the slightly more sophisticated and well rounded half of its famous brother, the 81. Featuring close aperture coils loaded with Alnico V magnets, the 85 is a powerful guitar pickup with exceptional tone and versatility. The Alnico magnets of this model provide a muscular growl and smooth lead tones enabling you to play everything from the blues to the most extreme metal. Although often used in the neck position, make no mistake, the EMG 85 sounds great as a bridge humbucker thanks to its exceptional smoothness and soul.
