    ESP Viper 400. Anyone here have one of these? Online reviews are generally pretty good. It's apparently a newer version of the ESP 301...which are harder to come by. The seller lives nearby, so it'll be a piece of cake for him to come over and let me try it out first.

    Need some thoughts on this model...

    Or go for a Peavey Firenza with the P90's? Yes I know that the Viper has buckers, but I have an idea what to put into that guitar to get me some P90 ish tones.

    Which ones a better value.

    Is it a real ESP, or an LTD guitar? If it's an LTD I'd take a US made Firenza over it hands down. I wouldn't even need to think about it.

    If it's a real ESP, a high end model, and not an LTD, that's a really top shelf axe. I wouldn't think twice about owning one of those either.

    Yep..it's an LTD model, but with a set neck and one that comes recommended.

    But like originalmatt said...P90's. Maybe I'll pass on this one.
