    I hope Dylan is doing ok and he is just off at his Aunt's house in the countryside recharging or whatever, but I'm a little concerned. I don't imagine giving back those deposits a couple years ago was great for his financial position.

    Ghost announces new album, "Impera"

    Love the new single. I've been on board since Meliora and have enjoyed their music and theatrics since.

    Nice used digital piano?

    Hi there, I’m interested in picking up a decent used digital piano. My wife and I had considered getting a real acoustic piano but after considering space, cost, and maintenance, I thought digital might be a nice solution. Is there a “used prestige” of the digital piano world, that might be...

    I always thought this guitar was super cool. I think someone will pay new Daemoness money for this easily. I see it's $8K now, so might have to come down a little more but getting close I'd suspect.

    Looks like Misha is offering up his Cimmerian for sale. His usual routine of no price “just gauging interest, dm for serious inquiries.”

    I'm pretty impressed with Dylan's statement. I don't really think he could have chosen a better way to move forward. Hopefully he follows through and it works out for him and everyone involved. I don't think a Daemoness is for you man. I must agree with Narad that at a certain price point...

    Narad, you are correct but my patience for your devotion to Daemoness is wearing thin. Do you think that because I waited 65 months for a guitar, saved and shelled out $5K, to receive a turd and then have to box it up again and ship it back across the ocean, wait for a refund, apply to Canada...

    I'll chime in and shed a little more light on the Barnes situation. I spoke to Barnes on Skype on March 20th this year, for around 45 minutes. The core reason why Barnes left was that he wasn't making enough money to live on. He said that he was paid by a per-guitar commission that he and Dylan...

    I see people throwing around the wait time as 60 months. It was 65 months for me, 9 months ago, on perhaps the most basic guitar possible - before Covid and when there were 2 people working at Daemoness. I would suggest that future wait times will be more like 72 months.

    OP here. While the rebuild is possible, I think it’s an unlikely explanation. After speaking at length about the guitar on Skype with Barnes after he left Daemoness, there wasn’t really any hints at that (or outsourcing or anything else weird) having happened. My theory had been that Barnes...

    I paid for my guitar in full in April 2018, and received it 18 months later in October 2019. At least then, Dylan asked for full payment when the guitar went out for paint. That's also when they ordered the hardware. It felt a bit uncomfortable at the time to pay for it in full at that point in...

    He and Dylan had a falling out earlier this year. I spoke with Barnes at length about it on skype but I don’t think it’s fair to elaborate much more that, publicly at least. I only heard one side of the story as well.

    Official Daemoness Guitars Thread

    I feel it might be relevant to mention that Barnes is no longer with Daemoness. I got in touch with him back in March to try to track down some paperwork to get the duties and taxes back on my Daemoness return and he told me he hadn’t been working there for a little while. Probably since the new...

    I mentioned that I would post a follow-up once I received the refund, and the money arrived yesterday so here it is. Barnes handled the refund admin and was very pleasant to deal with. Let me start by saying that it took me a few days to come to terms with just how bad the guitar was. My first...

    To answer your question, yes - the guitar was picked up just now and is on its way back to Daemoness. I'll post a detailed follow-up of the transaction and my thoughts when the money is back in my account. Here you go.

    I spoke with Dylan and Barnes this morning. Dylan took responsibility and was very apologetic. They offered a front-of-the-line rebuild or a refund. I’m planning to take the refund, but still have to confirm. It seems to me like a case of “fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.”

    Masking lines aren't great Why is the neck pocket painted? Strange tool mark/paint drip that runs around heel Just a lot of tool marks on the binding.

    Ok I said I would post more pics and I wanted to try without imgur so here goes. Would like to document this process. Neck pocket crack 2. Polish swirls/marks (More swirls and not sure why the neck bolts have to be so ghetto like they came out of a drawer of used furniture hardware)...

    I’ve heard back from Barnes and he and Dylan are eager to come to a resolution. I’ll update as things progress.
