M-4 BLACK METAL

BLACK SATIN

M-4 BLACK METAL
$899.00
(U.S. Only)

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 M-4 Black Metal marks the return of the M design to our bass offerings, with its bolt-on construction, slab body, speedy maple neck, and and pointed inline headstock. This 34” scale bass features a single direct-mount EMG 35CS pickup with special black logo, a pickup that combines ceramic magnets and steel poles for warmth and punch with a smooth top end and plenty of output. The M-4 Black Metal also features Grover tuners, a Gotoh 201B-4 bridge, and stainless steel frets.

Will this bass be made in lefty at any point? 

Todd B. ESP

Hi Michael, Sorry it's not available currently in LH but that could be an option in the future.

I would love to see this body style make a comeback for bass!  If this was a PJ, or had a neck pickup, it would be perfect in my opinion.  Still curious about this one and hope to hear a good demo of it online somewhere!

Todd B. ESP

Hey Cody, thanks for your suggestions. This used to be a popular shape for ESP back in the 80's....maybe it's time for a comeback as you said!

Welp, time to sell the Jackson Concert and grab this prestigious beauty!

I'm in a similar boat. I really like the design of the Dave Ellefson sigs, but I've never played one that didn't have HORRENDOUS fret sprout. 

Matt C.

That, is tight!
