Spalt 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.
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.
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 "Pearly Gates" bridge pickup and 59 neck pickup, for a very distinctive tone signature in this model.
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.
Seymour Duncan Pearly Gates/59
The MAVERICK applies all the modern contours that DBZ•Diamond is known for, and a top-down redesign to a vintage-inspired instrument, giving it a new, hot rod modern style and updated feel. The result is something that may remind you of earlier days, but has all the cool factor you want from a modern guitar.
The MAVERICK SM Series features an attractive spalted maple top with transparent jewel colors and a natural color center stripe. Seymour Duncan Pearly Gates/59 pickups, fantastic cutaways and a fabulously shaped contoured set neck create amazing feel, playability and tone.
