Daemoness Cimmerian 'Malleus Maleficarum' Build Thread

So the first of my Daemoness builds is underway, I have 6 Daemoness on order and also own a stock build Daemoness Cimmerian VII. I'll update the thread as the build progresses.

Spec:

Body: Alder w/Maple top

Neck: 5pc Rosewood with ebony laminates

Fingerboard: Zircote

Bridge: Schaller Hannes

Pickups: Bareknuckle Holy Diver

Tuners: Hipshot Locking.

Body Graphic (front and back): Medieval woodcut style, relating to the Malleus
Maleficarum (The Hammer of the Witches).


My guitar is front row, slap bang in the middle:




Inlay: (Rest of fretboard will be blank)



Weapons of Mass Destruction:

I love the ethos and physical shapes of these guitars but I can't get on board with the 'gothic horror' graphics.

How long is the waiting list these days? Did you have to order in the Middle Ages?

Lol! Ordered late 2012 Jono. Wait list is growing. When I first came across
Daemoness the wait list was 9 months. I hesitated and when I finally did
order it was 2+ years. Obviously you don't have to choose a graphic finish
or insane inlay, he's done a pile of standard guitars which are just as cool or even
more so if you don't want an OTT guitar.

Oh yeah there was a black maple top floating around a bit ago that i thought about picking up, but it was just a bit too expensive for me to chase after.

If it's the same one I'm thinking of it ended up going for 4,000.

It is and that's more than I'd like to pay for something that would essentially be a drop-c djent beast, that would see an hour a week play time.

Understood. You could get one on order for way less but that means going on
the build queue and those are set in stone. Dylan has told me he gets offers from
people....obviously rich folk ....who have asked him to name his price to get their
son to the front of the queue and have a guitar built immediately and he won't even
entertain the notion. I admire his whole ethos fully. Insane talent and he's undercutting
himself on pricing big time.....I've personally told him this but he wants to get these full
custom guitars into the hands of as many people as possible.

Cheers Ron! I have one in the next batch which will be starting in the summer,
the other 4 are still another 2 years away.

Headstock graphic done. The body is currently being painted. You can see a very
brief vid of Dylan working on the graphic on the back of the guitar on the Daemoness
Facebook page.

Very cool. So that graphic, is that just black paint or ink? That's not burned into the wood is it?

Hell yeah, and IMO you did good waiting for a build later. He has come a long way as a builder.

Naturally!! He's evolving all the time. As if he didn't
have enough talent. Cheers anyway M/Stealth.

Dude, I don't know what pool of money you fell into but I'd like to come over for a swim...

JK...... I'm appropriately envious and jealous. Judging by the neck work alone I think this is going to be an amazing custom. I can't wait to see it's gradual progress. Any estimate on a delivery date? Should I buy cigars?

Cheers Ryc. Body graphics are being done as we speak then it will go
to get lacquered before final assembly. I'd say late May early June all
being well.
