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 M-Black Metal is based on the design off the ESP M-I FR. It’s a neck-thru-body design at 25.5” scale, and includes a Floyd Rose 1000 bridge. The M Black Metal also makes use of the direct-mount Seymour Duncan “Blackened” Black Winter pickup, controlled by a single volume knob.

I just bought a brand new black metal m with the floyd rose. Wow! This thing has such a big sound and great tone. It is on the heavy side, but that is not a surprise because of the quality of the wood. The neck feels great and is easy to play. To my surprise, it does have a push pull for the coil tap. I only thought it was on the ht version. But I would definitely recommend this guitar if you love metal.

Todd, possible for stainless steel frets in 2021 or 2022?

Todd B. ESP

Hi, Please check back later this year as we usually release information for next year model releases at that time.

Ivan A.

Will these get updated with stainless steel frets this 2021?

Todd B. ESP

It's quite possible we will offer more models with stainless steel frets next year, please stay tuned for any updates and new releases.

 I have one sitting in my cart ready to order. I'm curious if they come with a decent setup, like intonation , string height and such. I have no problems tuning a FR guitar , changing strings etc.. and have owned several. But I can't set one up properly to save my life. I always have to take it somewhere initially . If they get a good setup from the factory and it's basically ready to play out of the box, that would be awesome.

You will never get a perfect setup from a factory made instrument. esp/ltd, ibanez, and prs seem to be the best. Always plan to take a factory made guitar to a tech/luthier to have it setup for your playing style. Setups are personal. 

jimi c.

mine was set up pretty nice, intonation was perfect, neck was straight, the only think I needed to make a tiny adjustment on was string height and that was just personal preference. but, it is super easy to do all that yourself, it seems intimidating but you can just follow an instructional video

Any chance this will come out in an HH or HS configuration? That would make it an instant buy. Also, how about a whiteout version?
