ESP LTD Viper-401 Electric Guitar in Black or Flamed Maple Top £499 Delivered @ Andertons

Pre-orders for 2nd August - Now in stock

Very nice looking guitars! The SG kind of style here is something that's grown on me. Don't hurt me I love the sound of the actual SG, but the whole style has never been my thing until recently. Flamed maple is beautiful in general so I thought I should add that version in here too. Both are spec'd the same and are the same price on pre-order.

Regarding pre-orders... They are already released, it's just awaiting stock. So probably more accurate to say on back order.

Depending on your screen brightness, it will be hard to appreciate the flamed maple top on this one. I've taken the liberty of enhancing the image brightness on the body only, to try and give you a better idea of what it looks like. It's always difficult to see properly online, usually on black guitars. Image below

EMG 81 & 85 Pickups

One of EMG's most popular pickups is the 81; starting a revolution. Utilizing powerful ceramic magnets and close aperture coils, the 81's tone was designed with detailed intensity, incredible amounts of high-end cut and fluid sustain.

The 85 is an early EMG pickup design and is the slightly more sophisticated and well-rounded half of its more famous brother - the 81. Featuring close aperture coils loaded with Alnico V magnets, the 85 is a powerful guitar pickup with exceptional tone and versatility. The Alnico magnets of this model provide a muscular growl and smooth lead tones, enabling you to play everything from blues to the most extreme metal.

Those pickups are no doubt capable, but nothing comes close to the P90. I was fortunate enough to get hold of a De Armond many years ago, they (De Armond) managed to buy a crap load of original P90's and use them on this particular run. It sounds mint, plugged into a Fender Blues Deluxe. Ear blistering harmony!
