The MAVERICK applies all the modern contours that Diamond is known for, and a top-down redesign to a vintage-inspired instrument, giving it a new, hot rod modern style and updated feel. The result is something that may remind you of earlier days, but has all the cool factor you want from a modern guitar.
The MAVERICK ST mixes both vintage and modern. Hot styling, string thru, bolt on neck and a hum/single configuration gives the ST the best of all worlds. Mid-output Diamond Custom pickups make the ST as versatile as it is attractive.
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.
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.
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.
