The lead guitarist behind the post-hardcore band discusses what specs he likes in his signature ESPs and why he prefers going digital on the road.

Guitarist Tony Perry has been a loyal ESP user for years and this particular 6-string was one of the first instruments he received from the brand. This Viper is the basis for his new signature model. This oldie’s paint job is actually a vinyl application done by Tony’s friend, but the production models have a traditional paint finish. He originally started on SGs, but parted ways after realizing he preferred the 24-fret Viper’s bigger body, higher fret access, and overall balance. The original neck pickup has been removed to make room for R2D2 and the bridge pickup is a Seymour Duncan SH-4 JB humbucker. (Perry’s stock signature model comes with just the bridge JB.)
