The LTD F-4 Black Metal Black Satin is part of the Black Metal Series Basses. 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.
