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.

Just got one of these.

Very happy

Currently leaning heavily on getting this one after I get some stuff sold first. It has everything I want in a guitar. Pickup might not be what I'm after but that's personal preference and can be changed easily. If there was a Viper with these specs it might be a hard choice but now it's looking like this will be my next guitar.

Hi, Glad to hear that and hope you get a chance to play one of these!

Samuli B.

Just found one used and paid for it this morning. Can't wait to get my hands on it.

Is this version of the ec blackmetal (hardtail) also going to come with stainless steel frets?

Is the potentiometer in this model 500k or 250k? I'm installing a BW without the coil tap option and want to get a similar tone from my back up guitar.

Carl N.

These will be 500k

Thanks Carl

Bought a 2019 Korean model its sounds awesome had bit of neck dive but easily fixed it by moving bottom strap button and putting few weights in cavity The pick up is awesome has great buzz free action all good 

Carl N.

Cool, thanks for sharing!
