    Comments about ESP LTD Viper-100FM Electric Guitar:

    A great friend purchased this guitar for me in used condition from my (former)local GC in 2013. Payed $230 used. Had a few minor dings in the finish, but plays very well. After about two years of beating this guitar up, it started having some serious tuning issues. When I got the guitar, it had 9 gauge strings, I moved it up to 10's immediately. At the two year mark, I went up to 11's and the tuning became slightly better, but still not right. About a month ago(3 years now) I put on some 12's. It definitely needs to have the rod adjusted, but it holds up nicely. I play the 12's tuned down only half a step. But I think it will hold nicely at Standard.
    I've been wanting a floating tremolo lately and briefly considered trading this in. There is just no way I can part with my favorite fixed bridge tune-O-matic though.
    I sure do love this guitar. We have been through a lot together.

      This Guitar is simply amazing for the price! I have owned one of these, a Gibson Les Paul Studio, and a Fender Stratocaster, and the Ltd Viper-100FM EASILY keeps up with both of my other $800-$1200 guitars!!! ESP and Ltd continue to amaze me with well made and affordable guitars. This thing is GORGEOUS as well with the Flame Maple top.

      I have over 20 years of playing and this is the best.At any price. I had to make some small adjustments( neck p/u was set to low)and lift tail bridge to remove fret buzz. I less than 5 min adjustment were made!! I play very hard and it stays in tune!!

      Comments about ESP LTD Viper-100FM Electric Guitar:

      Before i had received this guitar I actually had a real stratocaster. I had bought this guitar just to mess around with and didn't take it too seriously when buying, well it isn't as good as a strat but i liked it a lot. This guitar is actually way better than i expected. I actually play it more than my strat. This guitar is an excellent beginner guitar and it is worth the price.

      its worth more than it costs

      Comments about ESP LTD Viper-100FM Electric Guitar:

      I've had this guitar for a few weeks now and find it rather difficult to stop playing it. I can play for hours with this thing. The neck is really smooth and is quite comforatble, especially with my small hands. The humbuckers, to my amazement, actually sound pretty crisp and clean. The input jack was loose when i recieved it, i tightened it up and it hasnt given me any problems since. The switch is nice and stiff and works like charm. Played through any amp, this guitar sounds great distorted and clean, strings dont get out of tune unless you play hardcore for hours. the finish looks just like its displayed, no scratches or nicks. the overview of this is guitar is that it is well worth the money. great for beginners and experienced players, and is certainly worth more than you pay for. i recommend this guitar without a doubt. Buy It!

      Ordered this one a few months ago, as soon as i opened the box i was surprised to see how good this guitar actually looks. It sounds great and is made of quality materials. I dont see one problem so far. Great price too.

      Excellent guitar for the price

      Comments about ESP LTD Viper-100FM Electric Guitar:

      This is an excellent guitar for the price. Since buying a Les Paul, then a Strat many years ago, I always strayed from guitars made overseas, but this one had me hooked. It feels solid and appears to made with good quality materials. The sound will only be as good as your equipment, so I can't comment on that, but the clean tone sounds as good as you'd expect from a guitar with 2 humbuckers. I liked this guitar so much, that after only 3 weeks with it, I went and bought another ESP guitar called a MH400-NT, which they now market as a MH401-NT (I have a good review of that one also). For the price range, I haven't found anything from Ibanez, Jackson Etc. that matches the quality. The flame maple finish looks brilliant. I have already convinced 1 of my students to trade his "Dinky" for one.

      Awesome!

      Comments about ESP LTD Viper-100FM Electric Guitar:

      I got this guitar a few weeks ago and i instantly fell in love with it. The finish is a nice glossy black with whats called a "quilted top" or something like that. The "Viper 100FM" inlay at the twelfth gives it a nice touch as well. I play worship for my church occasionally and the sound is pretty good. It's got a nice crunch with my foot pedal, so I'm satisfied. I only got good reactions when people saw it so, i guess that's a good thing. It is well worth the price and you won't be sorry you bought it.
