NOTE: Due to ongoing challenges in the global supply chain, instruments purchased from ShopESP that are not currently in stock may take an extended time frame to be delivered.

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 F Black Metal adds one of our more extreme body shapes to the Black Metal Series, and offers a neck-thru-body design with an extra thin U-shaped neck, a Floyd Rose 1000 bridge, a direct-mount EMG 81 pickup with black logo, an EMG TKO kill switch, and stainless steel frets.

Please make a 7 string of this with the same specs.  Or, send me a form so that I can order a custom version of it.

Please make this without a floyd and with black winter pickups!

Hi, thanks for your suggestions.

Very nice.  Think I found next guitar. Love that they added the stainless frets

Thanks for your comments. Glad you like the edition of SS frets. We'll be adding them more on new releases.
