Hailfire FM Bass
Flame Maple Top
A favorite of guitar players, Flame Maple provides a stark "flame" contrast between the darker and lighter grains creating a sort of "zebra" effect in the wood. Accented with Transparent finishes, it's tough to make a prettier guitar. Like Quilt Maple, Flame Maple is added as much for its tonal properties as its vibrant appearance.
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.
The Babicz bass bridge utilizes technology for bass bridge saddles 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 Babicz bass bridge also offers a saddle housing lock feature for added saddle stability.
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.
Optimized for bass design, DBZ'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 Set Neck
DBZ'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.
EMG BTC System
The HAILFIRE bass is another example of classic design meets modern style as well as classic style meets modern design. The two can hardly come together better than the HAILFIRE bass. Modern features like EMG pickups and Babicz bridge. Classically styled body shape with mondern contours and complete reshaping, re-balance and top down construction re-design put the HAILFIRE bass at the top of the charts for evolution, playability, sound and style.
A staple of the DBZ/Diamond line, the Flame Top is among the most popular woods for a guitar. Featured in some stunning colors, EMG pickups, EMG BTC Control System and everything you need on a guitar, with the signature mahogany/maple tone combination and neck-thru construction.
