(U.S. Only)

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 black metal LTD logo on the headstock. The Phoenix Black Metal puts the outstanding Phoenix shape into the Black Metal design, with neck-thru-body construction using a three-piece mahogany neck and mahogany body wings. You get great tonal variety on this guitar with its single Fishman Fluence Modern Humbucker pickup that offers a push-pull control to select voicings. It also features a TonePros locking TOM bridge and tailpiece, and LTD locking tuners.

Can you please add a floyd rose tremolo system to the guitar 

Carl N.

Thanks for the suggestion!

David L.

Is this guitar currently in stock?

Carl N.

You can add instruments to your cart to check availability otherwise you can reach out to your local ESP dealer to see what they may have on hand.

Pete M.

Is there a 7 string version of this guitar? PLEASE make one, its my dream guitar

Carl N.

No seven string versions of this model currently

Lorence B.

Is the finish on the neck for BM different than the others? The others have a gloss finish correct? Is the BM also a gloss finish?



Lorence B.

Sorry... I realized this is satin finish with some more reading. My mistake! 

Blake C.

Will there be a left handed version of this model eventually? I have the ec black metal and it’s dope, but this body shape, pickup, and scale length are even more to my taste so I’d love to get one of these if lefties are made 

Carl N.

So far just planning to produce the white Phoenix in left handed for 2020.
