Part of our ELITE BLACK SERIES, this STE comes in tactical satin black, matte black hardware, Ebony fretboard with only a 12th fret "Elite" inlay and EMG Pickups. The Elite Black is as the name suggests. 24 frets, great access to the upper frets and set neck design on top of all that.
Elite Black Series
The "Elite Black" finish configuration is inspired by the worlds' leading firearms and tactical manufacturers. Satin black paint, matte black hardware, Ebony fingerboards and an assault weapon look and feel identify the distinctive "Elite Black" series.
The satin finish creates a look like no other. Smooth, matte and silky, the satin finish creates a whole different appearance for the underlying color. Understated but powerful, the satin finish is also among the most desired finishes.
A classic design, and what is often considered the pinnacle of sustain, the String-Thru adds look and performance to your instrument. Our String Thru design with Tune-O-Matic bridge provides for amazing performance and feel, with string thru patterns enhancing the look of your guitar.
EMG Pickups started a revolution. Utilizing powerful ceramic magnets and close aperture coils, the tone was designed with detailed intensity, incredible amounts of high end cut and fluid sustain. Traditionally used in the bridge position, this pickup will make your leads slice right through even the densest mix. A distinctive look and sound, there's simply not mistaking EMG pickups.
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.
