Experience Japanese Legacy Crafted In The USA - The ESP USA NAMM 2021 Edition Viper Electric Guitar With An Open Grain Black Cherry Finish
Crafted at their ESP USA facility in Southern California, the USA Viper ups the ante on the ultimate offset double-cutaway guitar shape that so many ESP players have used over the years. The USA Viper offers a mahogany body with optional flamed maple and quilted maple tops and a wide variety of gloss and satin translucent finishes to allow the figured wood grain to be highlighted (solid colors are also available). These guitars offer smooth set-thru construction at 24.75" scale, with a three-piece thin U-shaped mahogany neck and ebony fingerboard with 22 extra-jumbo Jescar stainless steel frets and mother-of-pearl split-flag inlays.
ESP chose the very best components available for the USA Viper, including Sperzel Trimlok tuners, TonePros locking TOM bridge and tailpiece, Dunlop strap locks, and a bone nut. Pickups for the USA Viper include a variety of world-class Seymour Duncan (passive) and EMG (active) models, with a push-pull coil-split control on the tone knob for passive pickup models. The USA Viper includes a high-quality ESP USA form-fitting hardshell case.
Graphite Neck Reinforcement Bars
Get maximum strength and stability from your guitar's neck, with higher long-term reliability. All ESP USA models are made with two high-strength bars of carbon fiber.
Set Thru Neck Joint
ESP USA models that include a set-thru neck joint offer the benefits of classic set-neck construction, but with a modern look and feel that allows for smooth, fast and comfortable access to the guitar's upper registers.
Mother Of Pearl Split Flag Inlays
On guitars that feature the ESP USA "split flag" inlays, each piece of pearl shell is carefully crafted into our beautiful fingerboard inlay design. Every resilient and iridescent piece is completely unique and outstanding in its aesthetic design.
