The LTD Viper-256 Olympic White is part of the LTD Viper-256 series. Like all guitars in the LTD 256 range, the Viper-256 delivers far more than you expect for its reasonable price tag. Using the ESP Viper shape with its outstanding double-horn styling, the Viper-256 uses traditional set-neck construction at 24.75” scale. It pairs a mahogany body with a thin u-shaped three-piece mahogany neck. Its roasted jatoba fingerboard has pearloid ESP flag inlays and 22 extra-jumbo frets, a design which maximizes the sweet spot for the neck pickup. Components on the Viper-256 include a black multi-ply pickguard, LTD tuners, a TOM bridge with tailpiece, and a set of punchy, powerful ESP LH-150 humbucking pickups with a push-pull control on the tone knob for coil splitting.
