The LTD Black Metal Series is 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 Arrow-NT Black Metal takes the bold, extreme Arrow body shape and presents it in the killer Black Metal design scheme, with stainless steel frets, a TonePros locking bridge with string-thru-body design, a single aggressive direct-mount EMG 81 pickup with black logo, a single volume control, and an EMG TKO kill switch.

This is almost perfect. All I really need is for it be a 7 string haha

Any possibility that can come in the future ??

Hi, Thanks for suggesting that. There is always a possibility. Thank you for sharing your comments.


Hey Todd,

This arrow is 899 with stainless steel frets? That is what it says here in the ESP website specs but I don't see that listed at Sweetwater. Thanks

Todd B. ESP

Hi, Yes this new Arrow NT Black Metal is coming with stainless frets. The price you see listed should be correct as well. All the new models released for 2021 in the 1000 series range as well as Black Metal & Arctic Metal are coming with stainless steel frets.

Thanks Todd. Can we expect the lefty to be the same price?


Wow this axe is great ! Just replace the EMG with a SD Black Winter and it will be flawless !

Todd B. ESP

Hi Rudy, thanks for your suggestion.

Mike N.

Anyone know when this will be available for purchase in the US? I’d buy one today if available. 

Todd B. ESP

Hi Mike, this new model is expected to be shipping as early as later this month (Feb). Due to it being a new model and it may be heavily backordered it may take a little time for us to get caught up on filling all our back orders. We suggest you contact your favorite dealer and get your order placed if you are interested. For further info please contact our customer service team at
