• Metallic / Pearl Finish

    The metallic and pearl finishes are elegant to say the least. 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.

     
  • ABS Binding

    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.

  • 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. For more information on the pickup models, see our Diamond Custom Pickups page.

     
  • Grover Tuners

    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.
