OVERVIEW

Get bit by the venemous looks; the sound will hold you captive.

The LTD Viper-300M electric guitar has a fabulous feel with a double cutaway design and thin U neck contour which provides you exceptional access to the entire fretboard.

The 24-3/4" scale, along with the thin neck make playing this axe a breeze. Other features include black nickel hardware, a 42mm standard nut, ESP tuners,
tune-o-matic bridge & tailpiece, toggle pickup selector, and volume and tone knob controls.

    Comments about ESP LTD Viper 300M Electric Guitar:

    I bought this guitar at Guitar Center off the wall as a replacement for my Ibanez RG 370SP and what a difference I noticed!! simply a beautiful guitar! ... I do not order guitars off line, I play them and they must feel right in my hands before I would ever take one home... in this case, my guitar has an Active EMG in the bridge and a stock passive humbucker in the neck and they both sound killer. Great tone... I play through a fender Champion 30 (solid state) or a class A tube by Epiphone either straight in or with my Line 6 POD but both sound great as far as tone goes... this guitar has great quality for the price and actually surprises me daily... as far as feel goes, (which for me is number one when picking out a new instrument) ... it is fantastic... after a quick action adjustment... (ever so slight, I'm picky on that) and a pickup adjustment... it is probably the best feeling guitar I have owned out of the 8 that I've owned and hundreds that I've played... it is definitely up there with more expensive guitars well beyond the 3-400$ range... plays like butter, as one person on here stated... it truly does... and the inlays don't affect the playing and feel at all.. the body is a nice midrange weight so you still get that beefy mahogany tone without it being 20 lbs ;-) ... the neck is not offset, unlike my SG that I played for years... as in when standing the neck doesn't take a dip down... a plus for standing and for having 24 frets... overall, playability, sound, and feel are wonderful and its a striking guitar with its wood grain finish... very professional instrument indeed. :-)

        Great guitar!!! If you play anything from rock -metal- punk this guitar will not disappoint. Higher quality than I expected for the price. Looks just like the photo, plays like butter. Pickups sound great. Plug into a good tube amp, you've got a tone monster. The thin neck and jumbo frets make this guitar easier/funner to play than my Les Paul's.

        Hands Down Best LTD I've played!

        By Solomon Bales

        from Waukee, IA

        Comments about ESP LTD Viper 300M Electric Guitar:

        I can't find one thing wrong with this guitar. Everyone should own this guitar. I think I will order Vipers from now on. This is the best guitar I have ever owned, and I have owned plenty: Ibanez RG, Gibson Les Paul, Epiphone Les Paul, ESP MII Custom, LTD MH-400NT, LTD-H400-NT, LTD -MH-417NT, Fender Telecaster, G&L Telecaster, LTD Eclipse, Parker P44V.
        Get this guitar! You will not be disssapointed!
        This guitar is absolutely incredible! Beautiful finish, with a beautiful wood grain. The inlays are not pearloid as they are shown in the picture. They are a tan color that match the binding on the neck. I think this actually gives a good uniformity to the guitar, and I love the inlays! Amazing action right out of the box. I have no complaints. EMG's sound pretty incredible, and I'm not much of an active pick-up guy, so there you have it. EMG may have a convert!
        This guitar showed up with flawless finish, and after a quick tune up, the action was amazing! You just don't see that normally. I may have just gotten lucky, but I can't find anything wrong with the quality of the guitar.
        I have played a real Gibson SG, some standard ESP models, and other LTDs, and this guitar blows them away. The neck is nice and thin, the finish is excellent, and the guitar sounds amazing!

        Fantastic Guitar

        By kyle Owen

        from Michigan

        Comments about ESP LTD Viper 300M Electric Guitar:

        I love the ESP LTD Viper 300m, I just got it the only thing i don't like is the pickup switch inbetween the volume and tone knob. The EMG's sound great and the neck is almost flat with very little fret buzz. The guitar is perfect for me or anyone who plays metal and doesn't use a floyd very often.
        The set neck has great sustain and the EMG's sound nice and full. The pickup selector inbetween the knobs can be a little annoying.
        The guitar plays great the neck is almost flat and i am getting very very little buzz. The mahagony gives a nice little extra spice to the tone and the finish is very smooth and it doesn't leave any finger prints.
        I got this guitar on sale and I don't regret it. For the price the EMG 81/85 combo, mahagony body and set neck is just a steal.

        300M LTD ESP Made In China in Vintage Brown SMOKING DEAL!

        By charles m hale

        from U S A # 1

        Comments about ESP LTD Viper 300M Electric Guitar:

        Except for the non-pearloid markers and slight finish smudges, the guitar was well worth the price if you don't expect the gutiar shown on the ad, to be the gutiar you will receive. I sent mine back due to the visiual error only. If it had the pearloid markers as shown in the photo, I would be play'n it right now, instead of typping this review.....
        Overall for the price, a great value. My only problem is that the guitar I received was significantly not as shown. The MF listings shows the originatl version that has pearloid fretboard markers that look just great in the photo, but the guitar I received did not have pearl-oid markers but instead has sold non-pearloid peach creme tinted markers, which are not the same as shown in the photo on the order page. This is also the same on the ESP LTD web page as the version shown on the factory ESP LTD Viper 300M page, is not how the model was equiped I received. It might not be a big deal for some, but the overall look of the vintage brown with the pearloid was what sold me, and what I received was a visiual disappointment. Also the current model in Made In China and the finish has some sligh smudges from shipping, not a big deal on a non-gloss finish but not up to the ESP LTD standards many reliy on from the Made In Korea Models.
        Good for the money / other than not as shown / it was a great gutiar
        Other than not as shown, overall was an excellent value / the set of EMG's alone are worth the price, so how they do this for this price, must be a factory special due to the fretboard marker goof. If you don't care what type of fretboard markers are on the gutiar, buy it cause the price is right.

        Fret board markers are not as shown in the factory provided ESP LTD photo of this guitar, otherwise it's good

        By charles m hale

        from U S A # 1

        Comments about ESP LTD Viper 300M Electric Guitar:

        Except for the flag style fretboard markers not being as shown in the factory provided Exp Ltd photo that appears on the website for purchase desicison making, and the rear sudge in finish, I would be 100% on this one, overall Exp LTD guitars have always been an excellent value, and MF give good price.
        While overall it's a nice guitar, the finish is non-gloss and arrived with a small smudge on the rear, maybe from packing, and the fretboard markers shown in the photo are nice pearloid it appears that Exp LTD changed the markers without notice or updating the seller's photos, instead of pealoid markers, mine arrived with fretboard markers of a solid creme color that does not match the binding, and they have no peraloid patter, they look odd, almost like a fake guitar, but I'm told it's just a change without notice, it may seem minor to some, but I could have purchased an Epiphone SG for less that has the correct pearloid markers, which for me, adds to the beauty of this style instrument. The gutiar plays and sounds just fine, just the guitar that arrived is not the guitar show on the site when I made the decision to purchase.
        Other than the gutiar I recieved is not 100% equiped like the guitar was shown, and there's a smudge on the rear finish, it plays and sounds great, the price was good, but there was no disclosure about the guitar not being as shown.
        The discounted price was very good, and if the guitar had been 100% as shown I would be happy.
