ESP LTD EC-FR Black Metal, Black Satin
This model is part of the Limited Black Metal Series, which has a similar build and features as the Limited Deluxe 1000 series, but comes in classic all-black finishes, the inverse of the Arctic Metal series, which has striking frozen white finishes.
This model has a mahogany body, a 3-piece mahogany neck with a thin ‘U’ profile making it comfortable to play, topped with 24 extra-jumbo frets on a Macassar ebony fretboard. It also features Grover locking tuners and a Floyd Rose 1000 bridge, which improves intonation, sustain and tuning stability, and a premium Seymour Duncan pickup in Blackened Black Winter to match the dark black theme, and has a push/pull control on the volume knob so you can split the coil.
To complete the look is glow in the dark side markers, no inlays to really accentuate the black theme, black hardware and a Black Metal finish.
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 EC-FR Black Metal adds Floyd Rose 1000 bridge to the already-cool EC-Black Metal. It offers set-thru construction for smooth access to the highest frets at 24.75” scale. This guitar also features stainless steel frets, a single direct-mount Seymour Duncan Blackened Black Winter pickup, and a push-pull control on the volume knob for coil-splitting.
