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.

got mine yesterday....beautiful...great action...perfectly tuned to standard but I'm going a half step down....flat.....looks cool...neck is smooth as silk ....

LOVE the Black Winter pickup.....only a lit

tle overspray on a few of the frets....great guitar for the $$$$$$$money....

I love the aesthetic and when I was a teenager this would’ve been the best guitar for me, since I only played extreme metal back then and only used the bridge pickup. That being said I’d still like to have this in my collection, I’m sure it would have one the best extreme metal rhythm tones I’ve ever heard. I’ll pick it up eventually, the price is definitely right.

Hey Richard, thanks for your comments. Glad you like this design. There is something cool about simplicity!

Mihai

Thank you for your answer Todd! I bought the guitar and it is really great!

Hi Mihai, Thanks! Glad to hear that! Enjoy......

Hi!

Would be absolutely killer to make a 7 string version of this with possibly a longer scale length. 

I'm sure a lot of people would be behind this! Myself included.

Hi phil, Thanks for those suggestions!

Hi,

I want to buy an M-black metal black satin. Since I cant buy this in my country, I can't really test it myself and I have some questions. If you know the answer I will be grateful:

1) The M black metal has passive pickups. Do they "hum" or have background noise? I want to use this guitar to record in my daw so i need less noise...

2) is it possible, if I will feel the need, to replace the original pickups with active pickups? 

3) how much does this guitar weight? 

Thank you!

Hi Mihai, Please check with your local or nearest distributor regarding availability. Here is a link to our distributor page: https://www.espguitars.com/locations?categories=intl-distributors 

Here are the answers to your questions:

1) The passive pickups are high quality and should not have any extra noise, however they are passive so they will have a little more noise compared with a passive pickup.

2) I think the stock pickups will be fine but this is a personal choice. If you wanted to change to active you could do this.

3) Guitar weighs approximately 8lbs.
