M-BLACK METAL

BLACK SATIN

$1,213.00 $849.00

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.

Wow! I’ve got several ec-1000s. Love them. But....... this is just the way I like my superstrats. Neck thru. One Seymour-Duncan pickup. One volume. No tone control. And a Floyd. Well this guitar is now on my list to get... thanks ESP!

Hi ESP, is this the only M series with 43mm nut, so does it have wider string spacing? I´ve got chubby fingers so I am looking for a guitar with 43mm nut, so the spacing would be wider and I also love ESP guitars, but can´t get one because of this issue. I´ve got guitars with 42mm nut that was playable for me but I believe that the 43mm nut would server me better. Also do you plan to make more guitars with 43mm nut, is there any reason why they are made with 42mm? I understand that it is standard, for ESP now, but some other brands have 43mm nut as standard, and 42mm is closer to Fender style guitars.

Will there be hardtail 7 Strings version of this? Im looking forward to get one.

Hey Gahn, Great suggestion......!

I love the aesthetic of this guitar. The matte black finish, the black hardware and the ebony fretboard with no inlays. Sharp and classy. I have an Epiphone Les Paul Goth with the same aesthetic and it just looks like it means business. I bet this plays like a dream.

Hi Shawn, thanks for those comments. We feel like you would definitely fall in love with this guitar if you had one in your hands.
