Simple. Very traditional design meets new contours. Classic design and modern style. Or is it classic style with modern design? Both. The BOLERO has what it takes for every situation. From jazz to blues to rock to metal, the BOLERO does it well. With a mix of dynamic colors, it looks as amazing as it sounds. It's iconic. It's versatile. It's classy. It's aggressive. It's stunning. And it's timeless.
The FM Plus has all the bells and whistles. Flame Maple top, Abalone binding, Seymour Duncan Diamond signature pickups, matching headstock. Elegant, hot, dynamic and sounds and plays incredible. Signature Maple/Mahogany tone and Mahogany neck. Set-neck construction.
Stunning real Abalone shell is inlayed around the edge of the body accentuating color through the broad range of dynamic colors inherent in the shell providing a brilliant finishing touch of class and style.
Transparent finishes are among the most desired in guitars as they allow for both the unique color and the natural grain of the wood to show through. The darker grain provides a dynamic contrast to the lighter grains giving you a 3-Dimensional and unique look.
Body and headstock are finished in the same wood and/or color. Great accent that brightens the entire look of the guitar through a subtle, but fabulous accent. Great finishing touch.
Flame Maple Top
A favorite of guitar players, Flame Maple provides a stark "flame" contrast between the darker and lighter grains creating a sort of "zebra" effect in the wood. Accented with Transparent finishes, it's tough to make a prettier guitar. Like Quilt Maple, Flame Maple is added as much for its tonal properties as its vibrant appearance.

Seymour Duncan / Diamond Signature Custom Pickups
Co-designed by amp designer Jeff Diamant (Diamond Amps and Diamond Guitars founder) and Seymour Duncan, the DD-1 Diamond Hole-shot pickup is aggressive, high output, but clean and smooth. The DD-5 Diamond 4-Stroke neck pickup is classic, round and warm. Made for us by Seymour Duncan's USA Custom Shop, these are consistently among our Players' favorite of our pickup choices.
Often considered the world's finest tuning machines, the Grover tuners are a triumph in engineering and style. The housing provides a maximum bearing for worm gear and string post and designed to eliminate backlash and slippage. Countersunk tension tension screw permits players to regulate turning tension to any degree. Gear box has a special lubricant for lifetime, trouble-free service.
Contoured Set Neck
Diamond's Contoured Set Neck method is arguably the most popular neck joint style amongst high-end electric guitars. The set neck is carefully cut to match its mounting point on the guitar body and the two sections are joined to maximize strength and minimize neck wiggle. Most notable is the amazing feel of the neck joint when you need it most - near the highest frets. Our contour feels fast, comfortable and as if the neck joint isn't even there.
