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.

I think it would be cool to be able to split the humbucker like a push/pull knob for some single coil clean stuff.

Todd B. ESP

Hi luckyguitar, thanks for your suggestion.

Driver

Hey ESP,

Any plans to have a an Arrow or TE model in the Black Metal Series with a hardtail and locking tuners? Is it possible that this series come with Spoke-Wheel adjustable tross rod at the base of the fretboard instead of the headstock? Thanks

 

Hubert C.

Arrow or ESP V is good idea for this series they could make them too. All ''metal" shapes in black metal are suitable.

 

Todd B. ESP

Hi Hubert, thanks for your suggestions.

Todd B. ESP

Hi Driver, thanks for your question/suggestion. We will be releasing some new models at the beginning of next year. you might get a preview of some new models before end of the year.

Emperor

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

Todd B. ESP

Hey Emporer, Yes you will see some new ones. Let us know what you're looking for. A lot of people have commented on what they want. Although we can't make every configuration we are planning to at least offer something more to choose from.

Emperor

Thanks for the reply Todd. I think a seven string variant for the EC or M would be pretty cool. I also love the EX shape, and think it would be a great addition to the series. I'm looking forward to when the new models are revealed. 

Todd B. ESP

Hey Emperor, Got it, thanks for your suggestions.

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.
