M-BLACK METAL

BLACK SATIN

$899.00

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 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 love this guitar to death. I was skeptical at first with it being Indonesian made (as I’ve had bad experiences with Indonesian guitars in the past) but this one turned out to be great. I’d love to maybe see a TE-7 Baritone Black Metal though, I know it’s a long shot, but that would definitely be something I’d wanna get my hands on. Killer work guys

Thanks for the insight Joe!

Why does the hard tail cost more than the version with the tremolo? Also can these 2 guitars be down tuned to a drop B with no problem or may be minor set up? Thank you

Carl N.

Hey Shannon, I assume the HT costs more to produce than the Floyd version.  Regarding tuning, all instruments would need a setup after a tuning adjustment such as this.

Hello, I'd like to know a bit more about the price change, becouse I'm a highschool studen I could only get money in the summer for this guitar and I'm afraid I couldn't afford it after it. It'd be nice to know about how much will it increase too.

Carl N.

Hey David, pricing like most everything else is subject to change, unfortunately we do not have a time-line or schedule of which we go by for changing prices.  Typically when the new year rolls around is when we display our newest instruments and pricing for the year.

String through LTD arrow be nice. Instead of just E-ll

Carl N.

Hey Kenny, that would be nice!  Thanks for your suggestion!

To make a hardtail version of this model was a great choice!!...i own the M-Black Metal with the Floyd (What a great guitar!). My question is: Will you consider to make a "Deluxe" version of the M-Black Metal model?...equipped for example with: EVERTUNE Bridge, Stainless steel frets, Locking tuners?

Carl N.

Hey Andreas, all very cool ideas!  Be sure to stay tuned for the new models we'll be releasing in 2020!
