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.
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.
A classic design, the DBZ String Thru models what is often considered the pinnacle of sustain. 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 Pickups
Commonly considered the one of the premier pickup manufacturers in the world, Seymour Duncan pickups are a nice addition to the line. DBZ/Diamond is using the Seymour Duncan JB bridge pickup and 59 neck pickup, one of the most popular high-end pickup combinations in the world.
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
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.
All new for 2013, the HAILFIRE combines vintage rock and blues styling with the modern contours that DBZ•Diamond has become known for. The HAILFIRE will quickly become a classic.
