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 got mine about 1 month ago brand new and have a little fret buzz and am wondering if the Floyd Rose 1000 has any shims under any of the saddles from the factory to match up with the necks radius ? I know how to do the bridge height,truss rod adjustment and add or remove saddles and intonation and need to get it done..it doesn't buzz bad but its there mainly when the guitar is unplugged I can hear it and feel it slightly.

Hi guys
It would be very cool if you did M-1000 with TOM or LTD wersion of ESP M-I
Do you plan something like that?

Steven W.

Is there a hard tail version? If not are you planning a hard tail version?

Todd B. ESP

Hi Steven, Currently there is no hardtail version but it's quite possible we'll have one available next year.

I just bought an H1001 Deluxe. Super psyched to get it here so I can play it. Getting it set up for C# standard.

Hey Michael, Thanks for the kind words. Glad to hear you like your new instrument!

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!
