Like all E-II guitars, the ESP E-II Viper Baritone is made by experienced luthiers in the ESP factory in Japan. Featuring the cool double-cutaway look that’s perfect for metal, hard rock, and so much more, this is a 27″ scale baritone guitar that’s ideal for music that explores the depths of pitch. Designed for pro musicians, the E-II Viper Baritone has neck-thru-body construction, with a mahogany body and fast 24-fret maple neck with ebony fingerboard. Top-tier components include a bone nut, Schaller straplock, Gotoh locking tuners, and a Gotoh TOM bridge and tailpiece. Pickups on this guitar are the versatile EMG 60 (neck) and EMG 81 (bridge). Available in Charcoal Metallic Satin finish. Includes form-fitting hardshell case.

EMG 60
The 60 humbucker packs plenty of output with a balance of thick, boosted mids, big lows and singing highs. Featuring close aperture coils, similar to a mini-humbucker, this model produces rich harmonic overtones with plenty of sustain. Due to its ceramic magnets, the EMG 60 has a full treble response and loads of output great for distinct single-note solos. The 60 provides clarity and character to your guitar and works very well in the neck position. Like all EMG active guitar and bass pickups, the 60 installs without the use of a soldering iron, making it easy to do at home.

EMG 81
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
