Wednesday, January 21, 15 – NAMM 2015, Anaheim, California – Diamond Guitars (f/k/a DBZ/Diamond Guitars) is proud to unveil the new Zoltan Bathory (Five Finger Death Punch) Signature guitar models at the 2015 NAMM Show. The models will be showcased during Zoltan Bathory’s live appearance and autograph signing session at the Diamond Guitars’ NAMM Booth in the Anaheim Convention Center on Saturday, January 24, 2015, in Hall D, Booth 3290 from 3:00-4:00pm.
The Halcyon ZB models will come in two colors with slightly different configurations. The first, the Halcyon ZB-FR Black Moonrise model, is a Flamed Maple over Maple body, Maple set neck with Ebony fingerboard, 24 fret, 25.5” scale length, Floyd Rose bridge and Seymour Duncan Pegasus/Sentient pickup set, allowing players to use the thickest string gauge they want but retain clarity and ferocious tonality.
The Halcyon ZB-FR Kona Brown model features a Flame Maple over Mahogany body, for a completely different and warmer feel, with Mahogany set neck and Ebony fingerboard with the aforementioned pickups and hardware configuration. The custom inlay on both models, spanning the first to third frets, is a Tibetan Flame encompassing a Double Dorje, which is also a tattoo on Zoltan Barthory’s forearms.
Symbolically a dorje represents the ‘thunderbolt of enlightenment,’ that abrupt change in human consciousness, and coincidentally, the word also represents the diamond’s unique indestructible ability to cut any surface without harm to itself. Production models will be shipping immediately after the NAMM Show.
Post NAMM show, you can find pictures of the guitars and Bathory’s appearance at the Diamond Guitars’ Facebook Page.
