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 would definitely love to see something like that in " alpine white in satin " two pickups, one volume knob, 3way toggle, neck maple, 25" scale lenght and if possible extra thin U neck so the playing would be effortless but can´t imagine it  Also would be cool to have body wood with less warm tone than mahagony, something almost like alder or ash so the guitar would be gnarly and agressive like it would bite of your hands, and it would be cool if you could put pickups from Lungren the Black Heaven series, but maybe it would not be possible they are made in Sweden. But man having a guitar like that I´ll grab it from your hands even with the hands  Also guys please consider about getting stainless steel frets on guitars about 1000$ higher, would be super nice to have even padded gigbag like PRS does, it is not like the ESP case, but having LTD guitar in ESP case and paying extra for it and considering it is not avaible in your country is sad. And last but not least please if you will make happen that people can buy variety of ESP guitar picks would be the best I can think of it. There are tons of brands that make Ultex/Ultem picks but are pricey, or not that varieble in shapes and sizes, thickeness, and allways when I see artist use your picks I cry and beg for having them, these are the nicest picks I´ve ever seen, and yes I am seeing them a lot on internet cause I follow many Japanese ESP artists ( Incl. Takayoshi Ohmura, Syu, Aoi and Uruha from the GazettE, Yudai Miyamoto, etc. ) PS: Sorry for that crazy long comment.

    Hi, is this a guitar just for metal music or is it a versatile guitar? Thanks

    I really like this model, its simple and its clean.

    Since the pick-up is mounted to the body, would it still be possible to switch out the Seymour's to EMG 81?

      Hi SebN,

      Thanks for your comments. Yes an EMG would fit, but the corners of the pickup may be a little tight in the route. And you would need to drill out the mounting holes on the  new pickup you install as well as add a battery and change the jack to a stereo type.
