    So I saw this guitar awhile back when Nolly posted it in the dealers section and thought it was kinda cool. Probably not something I would but though. A few months passed and I started looking at it some more, and started to really like it. So I shot Dylan an E-mail. And unfortunately for my bank account it was still available:lol:

    Anyway, here it is!

    Not the best pics, but pretty decent for a phone.

    And a few more here:Daemoness pictures by jrenzinator - Photobucket

    Specs:
    Cimmerian body(swamp ash, flame maple top)
    Set maple neck, Ziricote fretboard-25.5" scale
    Glow in the dark offset dot inlays
    BKP Aftermaths
    And a big hand painted/stained skull on the front!

    I was in the middle of cleaning/re-arranging when it showed up so I've got a huge mess in the house right now. But my amps are still hooked up:metal:
    I plugged into my Herbert and jammed out a little bit and it sounds fantastic! Huge but clear at the same time. It's got a real nice grinding tone. It's tuned down 1 1/2 steps right now and I don't think I'll change it. I was a little concerned it might be a bit much for this scale length but it's not bad at all. I'll have to spend more time with it to give it a fair review.

    The neck is a different profile than I've played. It's thicker/rounder than I was expecting but it feels great. But one the most obvious things to talk about is that skull! WOW! I don't know what else to say about it. It's so awesome in person. I could tell it would look good from the pics. And it does! It's a true piece of art. A nasty, brutal piece of art:bowdown:

    I haven't played it much yet but it sounds pretty beastly so far. Granted everything sounds beastly through a Herbert:lol:

    He sure did. I'll see if I can get some better pics later that show some more of the details. It's pretty awesome what Dylan did with this thing. So gruesome, but beautiful at the same time.

    Epic NGD!:hbang::shred::scream:

    This guitar has always been mesmerizing to me! I toyed with getting it too, but decided to dump more funds into my own custom Daemoness, you know, really go all out and class it up:metal:.

    This is easily a favorite of Dylan's work. Absolutely amazing dude! I'm so jealous. Can't say enough good things about it. Awesome tone woods too.

    Let us know how it plays when you get a full on review done, and you've spent time breaking it in. Interested to know how it plays all the way up the fret board. A video would be killer too. Cheers and HNGD!

    Awesome. Maybe the best part is that you can still see the grain of the wood. And being a Daemoness, I know it sounds/plays awesomely.

    I have yet to see a Daemoness that I don't like. This is certainly no exception.

    I was thinking, "Why would Bristol Palin send you a guitar?"
