Re-released, the HALCYON is hostile, elegant and powerful in one design. Re-designed, the HALCYON is bold and aggressive, fast and modern, but with the flare of all the guitars we used to love. With all the features critical to a performing player, the HALCYON is still affordable. Its finishes are distinct and add an element of style and unique to the player. The HALCYON is, after all, a bird of prey.
The ST version is as solid as it gets. Real Mahogany body and neck, set neck construction, and amazing finishes. Featuring Seymour Duncan Pickups a Floyd Rose tremolo.
Metallic / Chameleon Finish
The metallic / chameleon finishes are not only premium, but just flat out cool. These finishes provide the unique look people have come to expect from us. These finishes will change their perspective or color depending on the viewing angle. It's like having 2 guitars in 1.
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.
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.
Floyd Rose Tremolo
The Floyd Rose Tremolo System is used by more professionals throughout the world than any other. Its double-locking design allows you to lock your guitar in tune at the nut and at the bridge. Engineered like no other Tremolo System, its high quality steel parts are manufactured to exacting specifications and has been setting the standard in tremolo systems for years.

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.
