Viper models in ESP catalog are based on the legendary SG design launched by Gibson back in the early 1960s.

It has everything you need on a guitar in any price range. Great tuners, simple controls, and excelent electronics. Versatile too because I can kick on the FX and play face-melting riffs and then turn everything off and play some bluegrass. I am very impressed by the ESP pickups and do not regret buying this model. Great construction, I have had this guitar for about a year and not a problem yet. This is actually my baby and my favorite of all my guitars. Excellent value, I picked it up in a music store in New York for a couple hundred bucks. A steal for something that is playable right out of the box. This one is my baby and I would sell every guitar I have before parting with it.
Plays beautifully and looks great as well, tuners seem to wear a little woth age but that's a given, all around great design. I'd recommend for indie or metal fans, but it does good with blues as well. :)
