EC-BLACK METAL

BLACK SATIN

$1,070.00 $749.00

The LTD Black Metal Series are guitars that are comparable in build quality to our LTD Deluxe “1000 Series” instruments, but with a dark and menacing design theme of all-black finish, components, and hardware, a single premium-quality pickup, Macassar ebony fingerboards with no inlays and glow-in-the-dark side markers, and even a newly-designed black metal LTD logo on the headstock. The EC-Black Metal is based on the popular single-cutaway ESP Eclipse shape. It offers set-thru construction for smooth access to the highest frets at 24.75” scale. Its Seymour Duncan “Blackened” Black Winter pickup is mounted directly to the guitar’s body, and it includes LTD locking tuners.

Any chance we'll see more models for the black metal series anytime soon?

Ka Pedro

Planning to change the tuners with Grovers also in black(just personal preference), Which one should I get?

Todd B. ESP

Hello Ka, please contact our customer service team and they can help you. Just note that the locking keys on this instrument use pins to mount to the headstock so you will need to drill a new hole for the standard mounting tab which a Grover or similar key uses.

Raphaël

Can I get a left handed one ?

Todd B. ESP

Hi Raphael, Yes this model is available in LH. It has only come available recently. Please contact your local dealer to inquire about this model.

 Sammy Greggio

Sweet looking guitar. Will this beauty ever be made with two pickups? 

 Sammy Greggio

Thank you Todd! Btw. This guitar is awesome. Sounds great and plays like a dream. 

Todd B. ESP

Hey Sammy, Great to hear that, thanks!!

Todd B. ESP

Hi Sammy, The idea behind these models are all blacked out hardware, single pickups and no frills, yet high quality build and parts. So at this time we are only making 1 pickup versions.

I just ordered this guitar. If I wanted to upgrade the nut would say the earvana esp style 42" nut work? Any other options? I love all the other specs but that could be an upgrade I make down the road...

Todd B. ESP

Hi Luke, Our nuts are pretty decent but if you want to upgrade with an Earvana you should be able to do it, but be very careful. Some Earvana nuts require that you cut the fingerboard slightly so it may not be something you want to do without a really experienced tech.
