2-Tone Premium Finish
The metallic and pearl finishes with accent stripe are dynamic to say the least. Accenting the body shape, these finishes provide the unique look people have come to expect from us. And the metallic or pearl finishes make the colors look so deep, you'd swear you could swim in them. In some cases, we use the more subtle but ever elegant satin finishes adding a whole different element of class and style. Satin finishes have that unmistakable feel.

Diamond Custom Pickups
Diamond Guitars spent countless hours refining their signature custom pickups. With its background in high-end custom amplification with years of developing some of the finest amplifiers in the world, Diamond's approach to pickups takes a much more integrated testing mindset realizing the that pickup is a part of the whole rig, not just a discreet component. 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.

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.
