The RENEGADE combines both vintage and modern rock styling with the modern contours that Diamond has become known for. Taking a cue from its predecessor models, the ultra-thin RENEGADE incorporates our innovative shape and feel resulting in brute punch, tons of resonance and sheer wicked volume.
The RENEGADE EM Series features EMG Pickups and more aggressive finishes for that heavier edge. This guitar screams rock-n-roll. String-thru, ultra thin contours and blacked-out finishes, the EM looks as mean as it sounds.
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.
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.
