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 EX Black Metal features set-thru construction, 22 extra-jumbo stainless steel frets, a TonePros locking bridge and tailpiece, and a single direct-mount EMG 81 pickup with black logo.

Just got mine few days ago, this guitar is a B E A S T! An outstanding guitar.

As a lefty, I have been dreaming about this guitars for a long time. First the Gibsons, then the LTDs. Now they are reproducing some lefty versions for my luck. But why it always has to be 24.75 scale? Downtuning would be problematic...

Try a wound 3rd Daddario set 13s I use it and tune to B and never have any issues with my ESP guitars.

why gibson guitars are 24.5 and the the ra 600 rob arnolds custom was 24.75 drop c he runs 10/52

This is my dream guitar. It is the most sexy thing ever. Surely riffing on this beast will get the girls

Really wish ESP would bring back the FX, that is my favorite version of this guitar. Especially in different colors rather than Black/White/PBS/SM...like Reds, Greys/silvers, Blues...I just really love the headstock on the FX, it was so unique looking. But alas, ESP will probably never bring back the FX sadly.
