EC-BLACK METAL

BLACK SATIN

$799.00

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.

Hi, I was wondering how long the EC Black Metal series will be available for? I really want to purchase one but I'm currently moving and it may be a while before I can get one. Do you know of ESP has any plans to stop making them soon? 

Todd B. ESP

Hi Vincent, thanks for your question. These will be available for the rest of the year. There is no plan to discontinue them. In fact these Black Metal series guitars just came out last year so we'll probably be adding models as needed. Hope you can save up and get one and good luck with the move!

why the price increase on everything? Nw44 is 1-200 more and the sct607b is 100 more black metal is 50 more

Todd B. ESP

Hi Logan, we now include cases with our higher end LTD signature series, so the price went up to include case. For other models, if price increased it is because the cost of manufacturing these models has also increased.

Can the pickup height be adjusted?

Todd B. ESP

Hi Joe, Yes it can be adjusted. There is some sponge cushion material under the pickup that gives support and a little bit of adjustment range.

Thanks

Please offer this exact guitar in a glossy black finish as well.

I really like the simplicity and sound.

Hi Rob, Thanks for that suggestion. We'll keep it in mind.

Another thing I might suggest is making a version with a thicker and wider neck. I got long fingers and the thin u is almost a little too thin.

Todd B. ESP

Hi Rob, thanks for your suggestion.

Hi Kenpachi, we could all use a few more guitars and extra $$ to buy them! Hope you get your hands on one soon.....
