• 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.

     
  • Solid Contact Bridge

    The Diamond Solid Contact bass bridge utilizes technology for bass bridge that offers a dramatic improvement in sustain and tonal quality by eliminating any gaps or voids between the bottom of the bridge saddles and the body of the guitar or bass. The Solid Contact Bridge also incorporates a string-thru design further adding sustain to your instrument.

     
  • Seymour Duncan Pickups

    Commonly considered the one of the premier pickup manufacturers in the world, Seymour Duncan pickups are a nice compliment to the line. Seymour's bass soapbars are a fantastic passive alternative to battery-powered pickups for four and five-string bass players. The tone is simple and organic, with added warmth and punch.

     
  • Deluxe Tuners

    Optimized for bass design, Diamond's Deluxe Tuners provide both the look and feel you need. Sealed housing, precision machined gears and precise tension make for performance and enjoyment for years to come.

     
  • Contoured Neck-thru

    As the name says, a contoured neck-thru finish has the neck carved from the same piece of wood that runs through the body. Great feature for feel and sustain. Infrequently used because it takes a lot of craftsmanship to execute, it is a favorite among many guitar players due to it's look and feel as well as easy transmission of resonance through the body.
