That's a great question that I'd be glad to answer, but first understand, as the sole owner of Blues City Music, I personally own AND gig with 1 DBZ USA Custom shop one off Royale with P90's (only P90 guitar Dean B. Zelinsky ever made), a Diamond Maverick, Diamond Bolero, and Diamond Bird of Prey. I also use a Diamond Tactical weapon system/gig bag with many of the MOLLE system strapped pouches. I've used this bag many many times on around the world trips I fly with FedEx Express on the 777 in which I teach. Never once has it failed to protect my guitars. They are the best bags money can buy PERIOD.
Diamond Guitars and Diamond Tactical weapon/system gig bag systems are all part of the Diamond Amplification umbrella in Houston, Texas. Diamond already makes killer USA custom shop and Vanguard import guitar amplifiers from the 18-22 watt Diamond Assassin to the custom shop 100 watt line of Heretic's, Hammersmith's, Phantom's, Nitrox's, 327 SD's, and Spitfire II's, so why not provide a very affordable complete guitar line to compliment these amps? Enter Diamond Guitars meticulously built in Korea at the same factory that builds PRS SE's, and high end LTD's, and ESP's, NOT MASS PRODUCED in China. Once finished, they are sent to Diamond and are set up to be perfect before shipping to customers.
So tell me about the range of guitars in this line? Diamond has everything from blues playing Royale's and Imperial's to 6 and 7 string active EMG pickup metal guitars. Diamond has you covered. Best part of this entire equation is the fact that EVERY GUITAR from Diamond Amplification is UNDER $1,200 USD dollars. Yep, you heard it right, under $1,200 bucks. Good luck finding anything to compare with this. In April of 2015, Diamond received 426 brand new guitars from the factory so chances are your dream guitar is in stock.
So what kind of case can I get with my new guitar? How about a Diamond logo'd hard shell case as good as any in the market, OR better yet, how about a Diamond Tactical weapon system/gig bag? Remember you can build this bag system with a multitude of pouches that use the MOLLE military strapping system on the outside of the bag. Pouches can fit pedals, strings, cell phones, you name it. Don't forget these bags will also easily conceal your Colt M4, AR 10, AR 15, SA 58, FN FAL, H&K 91, AK 47, Galil, etc., so if you are a shooter like me, you'll doubly dig these bags as a guitar player.
Just like you, I have original Gibson Les Pauls, Fender Strats, and boutique Tom Anderson guitars, etc., but there isn't a better made guitar and gig bag for the money anywhere than Diamond Guitars and Diamond Tactical products. Best bang for the buck. Give us a call, I'll hook you up and you'll ditch all those other box store train wreck guitars and bags you've spent a lot of money on. I've done this exact same thing myself, so end the madness.
Diamond Guitars and Diamond Tactical. Remember that. You'll be glad you did.
Peace. Rock on and TURN IT UP.
