NGD: Edwards (not ESP) Viper!

I generally don't do NGD threads since guitars tend to come and go a lot in my case, but this is a pretty cool one.

I've been in love with my ESP Viper ever since I purchased it. It got me off the Ibanez train I was on (not that that's a bad train to be on) and I've never looked back. For my rock and metal playing, the Viper kicks ass! If you are not familiar with the Viper, it's essentially a thicker, beefier, Gibson SG with 24 frets and excellent tuning stability.

So I ran across this Edwards Viper on Ebay from a seller in Japan. After a ton of research, it turns out this is an Edwards Viper Vintage model, and that it was only sold in Japan. It's almost identical to my ESP Viper and except for the neck joint, which is like a Gibson SG neck joint. It also comes standard with the pickguard; I had to order a pickguard for my ESP. I got it for $399, not including shipping of course. And shipping wasn't cheap (Japan to US!). But, he seller got the guitar from Japan to my house in 3 days!

I've only found one other Viper Vintage and that was on a Russian website, and that one was in black. This may be the only Edwards Viper Vintage in the US :eeks. Not a big deal really, but I thought it was a cool notion.


The two side by side. Edwards on the left.



Crazy goofy headstock logo


Both of the guitar play pretty much the same and sound awesome! I have some PRS VB and HFS pickups that I'll slap in the Edwards to match the set I have in the ESP.

Thanks for reading! I will make a youtube vid tomorrow hopefully.
