    Hey lads! thought I'd share my latest CL steal, an older LTD viper-301 for a measley $150. It's actually for my brother, but that doesn't mean I can't show it off :hbang: some wear and tear but nothing major.
    the only work it needs is some rust removal on the pickup ring screws and a tiny bit on the stoptail, but other than that she is solid as a rock. dude was smart and moved the strap peg to the back of the neck heel.

    some quick specs:
    -mahogany body
    -EMG-HZ passive pickups
    -3-piece mahogany neck (painted)
    -rosewood fretboard w/abalone flag inlays
    -tune-o-matic stoptail bridge
    -24.75" scale

    plugged 'er in, sounds good, bro is happy. win.

    I used to own one of those exact guitar's many years ago, the only difference was the style of ltd signature on the headstock. Hope your brother enjoys! Hngd.

    I have a viper 300, basically the same but with block inlays. BTW, vipers are usually 24.75 inch scale, yours too.

    These are so cool man. HNGD!

    Had one of these in a dark transparent red finish. Loved that guitar, sold it pretty much out of frustration from some old band issues. (long story)
    I actually really liked the EMG-HZ pups too!
    Nice score for $150 :yesway:
