• Transparent Finish

    Transparent finishes are among the most desired in guitars as they allow for both the unique color and the natural grain of the wood to show through. The darker grain provides a dynamic contrast to the lighter grains giving you a 3-Dimensional and unique look.

     
  • Matching Headstock

    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.

     
  • Spalted Maple Top

    Similar to both Flame and Quilt Maple, the Spalt Maple top adds an entire level of interesting look to the guitar with its widely varied and unique grain patterns. Very desirable, often vary rare, and stunning to look at before you consider the brightness and punch it adds to the overall sound.

     
  • String-Thru

    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.

     
  • Seymour Duncan / Diamond Signature Custom Pickups

    Co-designed by amp designer Jeff Diamant (Diamond Amps and Diamond Guitars founder) and Seymour Duncan, the DD-1 Diamond Hole-shot pickup is aggressive, high output, but clean and smooth. The DD-5 Diamond 4-Stroke neck pickup is classic, round and warm. Made for us by Seymour Duncan's USA Custom Shop, these are consistently among our Players' favorite of our pickup choices.

     
  • 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.

about

The HAILFIRE combines vintage rock and blues styling with the modern contours that Diamond has become known for and results in something flat-out hot. The HAILFIRE has quickly become a classic and immediately established itself as a favorite among Diamond players.

Wow. Hard to get sexier than the EX Series. Part of our Exotic Series, the EX models have a version made from a Korina body and neck and a dynamic Spalted Maple/Mahogany version too. With Seymour Duncan Pickups, the EX Series is "custom shop" all the way.
