To ensure sublime tone and stable tuning, you'll find a carefully chosen hardware package including a pickup set consisting of two Nick Johnston Diamond Single Coils in the middle and neck positions and a '78 Special humbucker in the bridge position, a push-pull humbucker split on the tone control, a Graph Tech Black Tusq nut, Schecter Diamond Vintage vibrato system, and Schecter locking tuners. The 2020 Nick Johnston Diamond Series HSS Traditional is offered in a several of Nick's favorite signature colors: Atomic Green, Atomic Snow, and Atomic Frost, all outfit with a mint green pickguard and chrome hardware, perfectly capturing a timeless and classic look that simultaneously stands out unmistakably from the crowd.

zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Overall: Most of my guitars are all H/H or H/S/H. The closest thing I own to a strat is a Suhr Modern or a Jem. I had been contemplating a USA model of this guitar, but hadn't actually played one. Also thought about getting a USA strat again. I decided to give this a whirl. Out of the box was an immediate "ugh". It could be that it was the sudden cold spell and Fed Ex taking an extra 2 days to make it the last 35 miles, or the fact that it comes with 10s. Regardless, before passing final judgment, I thought it best to set it up like my other guitars. Well worth it because it hangs right up there with guitars twice the price. Neck profile is incredibly comfortable. Love the jumbo frets. Tonally it sounds fantastic. It gets that awesome strat tone, but you can still shred on it with easy if you want. There were a couple of fret ends that I hit with a file real quick. I'm not a luthier by any means, but it was two minutes and done. It's not even that it was bad by any means, I'm just used to the Suhr. The tone, the feel of the neck, just how comfortable it is to play and it looks amazing in person. It sounds great out of the box, but trust me when I say to do the string change and set up to preference when it shows up first, then dig in. The only reason I gave 3 stars for manufacturer support is because I can't believe someone would have signed off on it being set up to play as it was out of the box (which could be fed ex) and I dinged for value just because dollar for dollar, it's in the ball park for some of the MIM Charvel Pro Mod DKs that are out. I preferred the neck on this over the charvel because I feel like the pro mods are almost too small and the necks just feel incredibly hard...I imagine the ebony board helps contract the roasted maple on this model. For me, this is was the better guitar once I changed the strings and dropped the action.
