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.

I really like this guitar, will there ever be a reissue of the F 350? 

Todd B. ESP

Hi, there are no plans to reissue the F350 or 300 series however there could be more F models released in the future (this applies to all our series or shapes).

Alister H.

Any chance of the FRX model being re issued in the future?
