Nergal is the founder and frontman of the highly influential Polish metal band Behemoth, and his LTD Nergal-6 is a guitar that exemplifies his band’s dark sound. A single-cutaway design based on the ESP Eclipse, the Nergal-6 offers a mahogany body and a set-thru, three-piece mahogany neck at 24.75” scale, finished in Black Satin with black binding on the body, neck and headstock and complementary black hardware. The Nergal-6 has an ebony fingerboard with glow-in-the-dark side markers and the Behemoth “Trinity” logo over the 12th fret. The sound of the Nergal-6 is powered by a pair of Fishman Fluence® Modern Humbucker pickups. Use the push-pull tone pot to access two different voicings of the pickups. Push down for “Modern Active” tone or pull up for “Modern Passive Attack”. This model utilizes a standard 9V battery.

Does this come with a case or not?

I am reading contradictory descriptions on various dealers and online shops.

Todd B. ESP

Hi Peter, Usually we offer our LTD Signature models with a case, but for this one it's on our clearance section and is a discontinued item so it doesn't come with a case. Hope that helps clear up this issue for you.

It's been a couple of months i used the Nergal6 LTD, and i'm mostly happy in all situations (studio, rehearsal room, onstage). the tuning is very very stable, the intonation close to perfection, it sings and vibrates full of life  thanks to all the esp&ltd crew.

I have only one small problem: the glowing dots on side don't seem so glowy in show situation. But i will fix that! thanks

Use an ultraviolet light to charge them before playing, UV light charges these types of inlays faster and their effect lasts longer at that end.

Is the TOM & Tailpiece Tone Pros like many other LTD Signature models or is it just a standard TOM & Tailpiece?

Todd B. ESP

Hi Chris, this model uses a standard TOM bridge and tailpiece, not the Tonepros version. However the posts are the same size in case you wanted to put a Tonepros on these posts.
