    NGD: Daemoness

    Hey guys, this is my first post here, obviously; although, I lurk around here all the time. I thought you guys might appreciate my new guitar.

    Two years of anticipation is finally over. My Daemoness Cimmerian finally arrived.

    Dylan and I worked together to figure out what Dorč illustration worked best to depict the feel I was going for on this guitar. Dante's The Divine Comedy fit the bill.

    Here's the original illustration:

    Using some new space-age laser technology, literally, in addition to some of his own labor, Dylan was able to transfer the image on to the guitar exactly as Dorč originally illustrated it. I couldn't begin to explain what the process was, but perhaps the guys over at Daemoness can provide more detail for those curious.

    Next, Dylan did some outstanding work on the inlay. Roman numerals are ultra classic and really matched the antiquity of the guitar body illustration. The golden vine with the thorns wrapped around the 12th fret added further to the guitar's divine theme of suffering and redemption.

    I thought it was important to the feel of the guitar to not leave the back of the guitar blank. To round the whole guitar out, Dylan added a verse from The Inferno, Canto IV in his superb calligraphy.

    "Full body" pic:

    And finally, a really shitty iPhone pic that I took as soon as I unboxed the guitar.

    Alder body
    Maple neck
    Ebony fretboard
    Schaller locking tuners
    Schaller TOM bridge
    Seymour Duncan JB
    One volume control

    Also included in the case were some really cool Daemoness guitar pics with the letter "D" on them, plus a Daemoness shirt.

    The receipt/bill of work Dylan included was pretty cool. Of course, written in calligraphy.

    Close up of the Daemoness wax seal:

    I don't need to tell you guys how fast, smooth, and superbly this plays. This guitar is truly unique and one-of-a-kind. This will be a heirloom piece for my future son to inherit. A friend of mine, who knows nothing about guitars, was over when I unboxed it. I'll reiterate verbatim what he said when he saw the guitar, as his words echo my own sentiments: "Whoever built that guitar really loves his work." Indeed.
