Tear up the stage with ESP’s LTD Viper-1000 solidbody electric guitar! This wickedly aggressive double-cutaway guitar doesn’t just look mean, it sounds like an absolute beast. That’s because ESP stepped the tried-and-true metal guitar up a notch or two when they built this axe. first, they began with their ultra-cool all-mahogany Viper body style, which gives you lightweight comfort and warm fundamental tone.
SEYMOUR DUNCAN ’59 (SH-1N)
The ’59 Model neck pickup is one of our most popular pickups because it’s so versatile. It’s designed in the spirit of the original P.A.F. humbuckers of the 1950s, with sweet sustain, full-sounding chords, clear and bright attack, but we’ve made a few refinements to slightly modernize the design and make it more adaptable to different styles. The ’59 has a full low end which is great for adding character to your clean sounds and sustain to your leads. The high end is slightly boosted for improved pick-attack clarity and the mids are a little scooped for an open, smooth sound that’s great for preserving the clarity of the individual notes in a chord. Play softly and the mids and highs seem to fade back, but pick hard and the note will be confident and clear. There isn’t a genre that the ’59 can’t work within.
SEYMOUR DUNCAN CUSTOM-5 (SH-14)
Originally called the Custom Custom Custom this pickup began life in our Custom Shop from players requesting a brighter, alnico 5 version of the popular Custom Custom humbucker. It has a nice, full tone, a scooped midrange, and strikes a nice balance of bass & treble. This even reponse makes it extremely versatile and great for all types of music and playing styles.
