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 Arctic Metal Series takes the same design theme of our Black Metal Series and flips the color scheme from the darkest of blacks to the coldest of frozen wastelands. Comparable in build quality to our LTD Deluxe “1000 Series”, Arctic Metal instruments feature a Snow White Satin finish, a single premium-quality pickup with matching white cover, and Macassar ebony fingerboards with no inlays and glow-in-the-dark side markers. The 7-string, 27” scale baritone M-7BHT Arctic Metal features neck-thru-body construction, an aggressive EMG 81-7H pickup with black logo, a single volume knob with push-pull control to split the pickup, a Hipshot bridge with string-thru-body design, and 24 extra-jumbo stainless steel frets.

Just recently purchased the Left handed 6 string version, so far It’s great. Curious if there is any plans of a Left handed 7 String?

I bought this guitar. This has everything that I need. I love it.

Is there a chance for 6 string baritone version (with all other specs the same) in the future?


I am aware that there is a 6 string with 25.5 inch scale currently available. But 26.5 or 27?

Hi, are these manufactured in Korea or Indonesia?

Todd B. ESP

We are currently manufacturing this model in both Korea and Indonesia. However, we constantly monitor production standards at our various factories in Asia where we produce LTD models. Should we determine that a certain facility is capable of manufacturing an instrument to ESP's required standard or better, we may decide to shift production, or in some cases share production of a model, wherever that factory may be located. The guitar should be of excellent quality regardless of where it's made, and it will have passed our own quality assurance testing.
