The STP Series brings you the amazing looks of "custom shop" guitars, but at affordable prices. Featuring Flame Maple / Mahogany combinations, matching headstocks, ABS binding and Diamond Custom pickups optimized for best amplifier performance, the STP Series sounds and plays as good as it looks.
A unique accent where the top joins the body, ABS binding surrounding the body accents the color and guitar. In white, cream or black depending on the color.
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.

Our pickups are optimized to get the best performance from your amplifier by paying very particular attention to the frequencies and shape of the output of the pickup. For more information on the pickup models, see our Diamond Custom Pickups page.
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.
