i was thinking about getting a cheaper esp viper and putting a new neck and pickups on it on it. what necks are fast and flat? and which pickups would be good for a versatile rock/metal, or blues sounds?

don't listen to hammet, EMGs are very high gain and IMO suck at blues.

^+1- the viper is just an SG ripoff, if you save up for a gibson (like i did) it will blow you away. you will never need another guitar

Whenever I clean my guitars, my family wonders why it smells so good; I say that I exude a fresh citrus scent from hidden orifices.
