    Man, I'm never going to be able to decide between clean lines, maple board, flat top, plain classic shredder type thing and CAN IT HAVE A WINGED SKELETON PULLING A HORSE DRAWN PLOUGH AND THE HORSES ARE SKELETONS AND THE PLOUGH IS AN ENORMOUS TREE

    Y E S. Alien gore/slimeburst?

    On another note, On a matte black Hadian, would you guys go for flat top, or bevels? My build is stacking up to look like a Matte black hadian, single flat mount BW pickup, 24 frets, with 15-24 beveled. Neon green inlay of an F-15 Eagle HUD getting a guns kill on a SU-27-35 in aluminum or steel on ebony, and an inverse old school stock with the Daemoness logo in Air Force stencil lettering.

    Duh, do the skeleton idea. why pay for a daemoness if you're not going to get some dope artwork? dylan's inlay/painting/drawing skills are top notch, and they're main reason I put in an order with him.

    It's actually my take on the Alexi "Blacky", but a little more murdered out. But exactly that vibe.

    Exactly - I was going back and forth on doing something more clean vs an inlay, and came to the conclusion that you can get something clean/safe from a bunch of other builders/brands. You're getting a custom made guitar by a luthier who specializes in insane inlay and artwork, so I decided it would be a waste not to get something. Remember, it doesn't have to be something over the top; I went through a bunch of ideas until I got to something that I could say I would be happy playing today and 50 years from today. Whatever you end up doing you know that Dylan will make it classy and all flow together - I'm putting my trust in him!

    IMO, neon yellow/green splatter would look sick on a flame maple top with see thru black burst. I'd go alder body, maple top, maple neck. Personally, maple FB, but for what you're talking about, I think only ebony makes sense.

    Neither is wrong, but this is Daemoness, we all know which one is right.

    Waghorn just put something like this out, but it's a 7. Seriously, it's exactly what you described.

    I think a maple board could work with black inlays esp for detail on the kaiju/arachnid/alien, considering the oldschool body type with a reversed inline headstock. I dunno how to feel about alder i've never played a fixed bridge alder guitar, so they've always sounded real thin and shrill/bright. Perhaps i'll go with some more exotic wood choices for the body?
    My PRS is all mahogany and thats one of my favorite guitars but i feel like the bridge lends to the sound moreso than the wood does once again.

    @IbanezDaemon or other gentlemen who’ve already gone through this before, do you remember how long the actual build time took from commencement? I would imagine that period requires more stoicism than the 2-3 year queue.

    I've always found alder to be slightly dark and generally balanced. Certainly an ash strat has a tendency to be brighter than alder. I don't think it's a bad choice in this case at all.

    Way things are going circa 30 months seems to be spot on. I think there are guys in this upcoming batch who placed their orders in the earlier part of 2016. Then allow maybe 9 months or so I'd say for your build to be completed. There are variables of course and it could be longer. When did you place your deposit?

    I’m gonna give it a strong consideration. Will definitely take in Dylan’s opinion on body woods.

    I see, thanks for the explanation! I placed my deposit around Nov 7, 2016, so nearing 2 years now. 9 month build time is actually shorter than I thought for such complex instruments. I'm debating going bespoke for the shape since I already have a cimmerian and atlantean. I reckon any shape Dylan works with will be a metal machine regardless!

    I’m not sure I would hope for a 9 month build time. I had my skype call to finalize specs in October 2016 and I’m still waiting. In March 2017 I got an update that the body/headstock had been cut and neck built.

    Same here. I'm hoping it pops up on the website soon with close up pics.

    If I were you, I'd definitely be chasing up a bit to check on the progress.

    It's not unreasonable to expect that the guitar would be finished within 18 months.
