The ESP LTD Viper-50 Electric Guitar is all about playability. The dual ESP LH-150 pickups buck 60-cycle hum, making them much quieter than single-coil pickups and more powerful. The 24-3/4" scale is slightly shorter than many electric guitars, making for less string tension and easier play. The LTD Viper-50 guitar's basswood body and maple neck with rosewood fretboard promise superb stability and long life.

I've had this guitar for 2 years. It's not given me any problems at all. Though the neck is a little heavier than the body, it's still a great buy. I'd suggest this guitar to anyone.
I have had the white ESP Viper-50 for two years now and I have loved/hated this guitar. Ill start off with the bad:1. The strap bolts are on the end of the body and on the back side, having this throws off the center of balance. 2. The neck is heavier than the body, if you are planning of having your guitar positioned lower it is difficult to perform of stage with. I am in a hard core band and it works well for our sound. and on a good note: 1. It looks great 2. Light and easy to play with 3. decent pick ups 4. good for mid range players Over all its a pretty good guitar.
Let's get down to the bare bones. Pickups: Great especially for the price. Frets: Fastest I've ever used, but I'm used to a $50 Squire bullet. Tuning: Stays in tune for a long time even when moving between different houses with different temperatures set. Body: Heavy as hell. My back hurt after playing this for a half hour. Definitely much heavier than other LTD's like the F-50. Hardware: It looks nice, and works well. I'd consider this a good buy.
Overall a good starter guitar. Low E has string buzz that I can't get rid of even with adjustments. Neck is a little slow for shredding and feels somewhat cheap (compared to my Japanese Squire Strat). Pickups are great for the price and you get a good deep metal tone even with light strings. Overall, good starter (bought for my son) but for intermediate or above don't bother.
I've had my Viper for two months now, and the guitar pickups only needed a tiny adjustment, and since then, everything has been great with the guitar, except with the heavier-than-body neck.
