WOW that inlay is amazing.
What an awesome guitar!
That is amazing. Happy New Guitar Day!
I second what some of the others have already mentioned. How do you wait that long for a guitar? Good gracious.
I'm currently near the end of the wait for an Aristides Raw guitar (about a 4 month wait but mine is at 4 and 1/2 months due to an apparent shortage of multiscale hipshot bridges in black) and I think I might go just a bit more mad than I was before I placed the order!
Enjoy that thing!
Yes! Fantastic piece of wood with strings and Art!
Haha, simple. You just do it. Play your other guitars in the meantime. The first 3 years zoomed by. I didn’t think about it at all. It was all a flash. Just played music, recorded, mixed, made playthrough vids etc. set it and forget it. Time really seems relative. If you ruminate too much it’ll seem much longer.
Just play music! What made it go fast for me is that I saw it as just another guitar but with amazing art. Just a fancy tool that does exactly the same thing the rest of any other guitars. Music.
At the end of the day the music is really all that matters. We as musicians won’t be remembered for the guitars we used. Dylan will be remembered for his artistic guitars. But we -luck willing- will be remembered for our music.
Sorry to get all philosophical there.
Fun fact: the brass leaves from her hair are on frets 3 5 7 9 and the eyes on 12
Yeah. I get ya. I like the philosophical stuff. Guitars are tools, a means to an end. Music.
Still that is a long time to wait
Meh. There's guitars on my bucket list I've waited tens of years for. GAS culture feeds this idea you need to have an entire stable of custom guitars from every builder over 30k followers for music cred, but an instrument of a high value and one you're planning on keeping (as, IMO, Dylan's guitars are designed to be) is worth waiting for.
That's pretty. Not sure I'd go with a 5 years waiting list though.
A work of art, no question
I know we're all rightfully losing our minds over the guitar but can I also say the white Hiscox case is dope as FUCK
Here's a better pic of the case!
The old waits were 18-24 months, and started to grow with the order queue demands, so Dylan ended up closing the books for a few years. There were a few other setbacks including landlord construction, & finish work (outsourced) delayed because of health concerns. I waited 3 years from the time I actually put down a deposit back in 2012. Worth every second and delay. It is a long time and it's entirely understandable that people would not want to wait. But if you want one of these, you do. It's not just the wood and stains and cool graphics, it's the design experience, the builder's philosophy, and what goes into the intended heirloom pieces. That's too much for some folks, and again, all good and I don't contest that. What Dylan puts into his builds doesn't matter to some folks; they just want a kickass guitar. There are awesome instruments built in no time by comparison. But nobody can replicate what Dylan does, and I'm talking in principle and philosophy, not aesthetics.
"A reading from the Gospel according to Randy." Spot on. I'd live out of my truck before I'd give up my Valkenbyrd VII.
Hey, FWIW, Dylan still has better build times than Tool and Necrophagist do with albums.
Same here. No parting ways with any current or future Daemonii.
