Great guitar

pluntic, 06.02.2017
The first impression: OMG, which is really so thin! Shaping and finish are beautiful and leave the guitar incredibly elegant. Unfortunately, the FLöcher have no bindings, that would have been the summit of elegance. The size of the Imperial SH is roughly comparable to an ES-335. The workmanship is very good for the price class: lacquer, bindings, frets, neck, fingerboard and the neck-body transition are faultless. If you look through the holes, you will find striking grinding remnants inside, which can be removed with a little patience. A bit unsightly is that the silver insulation film of the electronic compartment cover can be seen from the front right in the right F-hole.

The neck is something like a medium D, not too thin and not too thick? A compromise maybe, but perfect for me. As you can read from the other Diamond guitars, the factory saddle is perfect and does not require any rework. I have replaced the 09er string in the meantime by 10er and did not have to change synonymous for the setting.

The sound is just as great as the look and feel. In contrast to a "real" semiaesthetic, the cavities are only milled out, and together with the extremely flat body, a somewhat quieter sound is produced. Stronger does not bother at all, since I hear just this extra heat that I associate with ES-335 and similar. The Seymour Duncans sound super: open, round, detailed and dynamic. The Coil Tap is not a joke against my fear, so you can actually get some glassier, more transparent sounds than with the humbucker circuit. A Strat does not replace the course.

There is a problem, unfortunately: The push-pull potentiometer for the coil Tap has a wobble contact after only two weeks, when it is fully turned on, there is no signal. I will soon have to replace it with a better one. The clay pot runs softly and smoothly, and the toggle switch is somewhat rattling, but still solidly constructed. If I wanted something to complain about, I would notice that the extremely narrow body is striking in the leg during the longer playing while sitting ... But I have become accustomed to it now, and on the other hand, the Imperial nestles through the special shaping Also very well to the body.

Enough written - this guitar looks great, feels great and sounds great. A secret tip and worth every penny!

Class!

Thorsten3570, 16.05.2017
The Diamond is not a classic semi-hollow, but rather a thin solid body with large milled and F-holes. The only way forward.

This design also has advantages: unwanted feedback is not an issue.

She is sound as a good (!) LP equal, but also has the "honk" of a semi-Hollow in the speech. Great.

The built-in Seymor Duncan PU's are sharp, perfectly transfer the sound of the guitar.

As with all Diamond guitars I've played so far, the price / performance ratio is unbeatable.
