2021 Product Preview 1
2021 New Guitar and Bass Preview - PHASE 1
Once again, we have so many cool new guitars and basses for the coming new year that we’re going to let you know about them in multiple phases. Expect more 2021 new models in upcoming announcements. More information on all of our new instruments will be released soon after the start of 2021.
New Choices in LTD Deluxe EC Series
Let’s get started with four outstanding new additions to the EC-1000 Series. We have two new EC-1000T CTM guitars, available in Tobacco Sunburst Satin and See Thru Black Cherry finishes. The “T” stands for “traditional”, referring to this model’s full-thickness body that’s chambered for weight relief. Some of the highlights include Fishman Open Core Classic pickups (with push-pull control for voice selection), and 22 extra-jumbo stainless steel frets.

SEE THRU BLACK CHERRY
With the EC-1000 EverTune BB, the “BB” stands for this guitar’s extra-thick metallic silver bold binding, which you’ll notice right away. But this guitar is more than great looking, with its set of EMG 60TW-R (neck) and EMG 81 (bridge) pickups, with a push-pull control to split the neck pickup. It offers 24 extra-jumbo stainless steel frets and the acclaimed EverTune constant tension bridge to keep your guitar in perfect tune under almost all circumstances.
EC-1000 EVERTUNE BB
The LTD Deluxe EC-1000 Gold Andromeda has a completely mind-blowing iridescent finish that emits different hues as light is reflected from different angles. This guitar, with gold hardware that complements its finish, comes with a set of Fishman Fluence Modern Humbucker pickups… Alnico in the neck, and Ceramic in the bridge, with a push-pull voice selection control. It also has 24 extra-jumbo stainless steel frets, and a TonePros locking bridge and tailpiece.
LTD Black Metal Series Expands
When we first launched the LTD Black Metal Series in 2018, we had no idea how popular it would be. Since then, we’ve continued to add new models to this outstanding collection of guitars and basses that all use the same theme of all-black finish and hardware, glow-in-the-dark side markers, and a streamlined one pickup, one volume control design.
The EC-FR Black Metal adds a Floyd Rose 1000 bridge to the already-cool EC-Black Metal. This guitar also features stainless steel frets, a single direct-mount Seymour Duncan Blackened Black Winter pickup, and a push-pull control on the volume knob for coil-splitting.
EC-FR BLACK METAL
One of our more extreme guitar shapes now has a place in the Black Metal Series with the F Black Metal. It’s a neck-thru-body design with an extra thin U-shaped neck, a Floyd Rose 1000 bridge, a direct-mount EMG 81 pickup with special black logo, an EMG TKO kill switch, and stainless steel frets. Another exciting shape, the LTD Arrow, now has a Black Metal version with a TonePros locking bridge and string-thru-body design. It also features stainless steel frets, as well as the special EMG 81 and TKO kill switch. It’s called the Arrow-NT Black Metal.
F BLACK METAL
ARROW-NT BLACK METAL
We’re also adding another bass to the Black Metal Series with the M-4 Black Metal. It’s been a long time since we offered a bass in the M Series, and this one has the slab body and pointed inline headstock that made the older ones so cool. It’s a bolt-on design at 34” scale, and features a single direct-mount EMG 35CS pickup with special black logo, as well as Grover tuners, a Gotoh bridge, and stainless steel frets.

More New Basses
While we’re not unveiling all of our “New for 2021” instruments in this Phase 1 preview, there is another bass we can tell you about right now. It’s the LTD Deluxe Phoenix-1004, a bass we offered previously and is back by popular demand. This bass is stunning with its neck-thru-body design, black finish with ESP flag inlays, stainless steel frets, reverse headstock, and a set of outstanding EMG 35P4 and EMG 35J pickups.
New MH and H Series Guitars
Always popular with guitarists who want a no-compromise solution for serious high performance music, we’ve made some great new additions to our LTD Deluxe MH and H Series guitars.
The new MH-1000 EverTune is available in two different versions. The MH-1000 EverTune Dark Brown Sunburst features a set of EMG 60TW-R and EMG 81 pickups, with the neck pickup splittable with a push-pull control. The MH-1000 EverTune Snow White includes a set of Fishman Fluence Modern Humbucker pickups. Both models employ the EverTune constant tension bridge, and high-class features like Grover tuners and stainless steel frets. The MH-1007 EverTune Snow White is the same model in a seven-string design.
DARK BROWN SUNBURST
The first thing you’ll notice about the new LTD Deluxe H-1001 is its Violet Andromeda Satin finish. The Andromeda finish makes the guitar appear various shades of blue, violet, and even green as light is reflected from various angles. The H-1001 is the first LTD version of this outstanding design in a satin finish. It also features a set of direct-mount Seymour Duncan Sentient (neck) and Pegasus (bridge) pickups with push-pull coil splitting, a Hipshot bridge with string-thru-body, and stainless steel frets.
VIOLET ANDROMEDA SATIN
New LTD Deluxe TE Guitars
The TE Series has allowed guitarists who appreciate a traditional body shape, but want the modern features, feel, and sound for contemporary music styles. For 2021, we have two amazing new additions with the TE-1000 Koa in Natural Gloss finish, and the TE-1000 Black Blast. The new TE-1000 EverTune Koa features a Hawaiian koa top on its mahogany body, as well as EMG 66TW (with coil splitting) and EMG 57 pickups, and stainless steel frets. The new TE-1000 Black Blast has an outstanding black sandblasted finish, along with a Seymour Duncan Sentient/Pegasus pickup set, a roasted maple neck, and stainless steel frets.

New Xtone PS-1 Colors
The LTD Xtone PS-1 is a fantastic semi-hollow bodied guitar that can cross over to many different genres and styles of music, from metal to pop to indie to jazz to reggae to just about anything you want to do musically. Two great new finishes for the PS-1 are being unveiled for 2021: Vintage White and Pearl Pink. The guitars feature a mahogany body and maple neck, and a set of high output ESP Designed LH-150 humbucker pickups.
A Couple More (For Now)
The LTD SN Series has a whole new possibility via the SN-1 HT. This guitar, in an awesome Black Blast sandblasted finish, features a single Fishman Open Core Classic pickup with a push-pull control to activate its multiple voicings. This guitar also includes a Hipshot hardtail bridge with string-thru-body, a roasted maple neck, and stainless steel frets.
Finally (for the moment), check out this killer new finish for the LTD Deluxe Arrow-1000, now available in Candy Apple Red Satin. This neck-thru-body metal machine features a Floyd Rose 1000SE bridge with stainless steel screws, a set of EMG 85 (neck) and EMG 81 (bridge) pickups, Grover tuners, and 24 extra-jumbo stainless steel frets.
