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-4 Black Metal takes the sculpted and contoured body styling of the F Series and presents it in the diabolical design theme of the Black Metal series with neck-thru-body construction at 35” scale (perfect for brutal downtuning), extra-thin U-shaped three-piece maple neck, and mahogany body. Other highlights include 24 stainless steel frets, black binding on the neck and headstock, stainless steels frets, Grover tuners, a Gotoh bridge, and a single Fishman Fluence SB-1 active pickup with a single-coil mode that's accessible via a push-pull volume control.
