The 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 black metal LTD logo on the headstock. The Phoenix Black Metal puts the outstanding Phoenix shape into the Black Metal design, with neck-thru-body construction using a three-piece mahogany neck and mahogany body wings. You get great tonal variety on this guitar with its single Fishman Fluence Modern Humbucker pickup that offers a push-pull control to select voicings. It also features a TonePros locking TOM bridge and tailpiece, and LTD locking tuners.
