ESP LTD M Black Metal Electric Guitar

The ultra-sleek M Black Metal model hides a raw sound under its restrained appearance. A single "Blackened" Black Winter humbucker cranks out searing tone.
What's special about this item?
Feature: What it does:
Alder body Light weight with a wide tonal range
Macassar ebony fretboard High-density wood; smooth playing feel
Neck-through-body construction Longer sustain; strong midrange; smooth feel
Seymour Duncan Black Winter pickup Three large ceramic magnets for extreme output
The ESP LTD Black Metal Series are guitars that are 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-Black Metal is based on the design of the ESP M-I FR. It's a neck-thru-body design at 25.5" scale, and includes a Floyd Rose 1000 bridge. The M Black Metal also makes use of the direct-mount Seymour Duncan "Blackened" Black Winter pickup, controlled by a single volume knob.

"Drop everything and buy this guitar now"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I am a metal guitarist of 15+ years. From deathcore, death metal, metal core, hardcore, heavy metal, stoner metal, Black metal, and doom. You name it and I've played it. This guitar does it all with ease. I have this guitar setup for Drop A right now and this baby screams, great for riffs, chugs, leads, and everything in between. My ONLY issue with this guitar is that the jack plate was not screwed in all the way when I received this guitar. 2 second fix. I would buy this guitar again, and again.
