Anyone here going for more extreme shapes this round? Had my chat with Dylan and Barnes the other day... Expect lethality.
Awesome! Whenabouts did you put your deposit down?
I was thinking an Odyssean for the longest time but I'll be damned if I can't get over how much I love the curves of the Cimmerian combined with the Daemoness classic headstock. Maybe another build down the road... a 7 string Odyssean sounds wonderful!
Which one is the Odyssean? Doesn’t immediately spring to mind. Think it was like January of ‘16.
A straight up murderous Cimmerian is the perfect metal axe. The one with all the teeth on it, and the praying skeletal hands and candles is to this date probably the best feeling guitar I’ve played.
About 3 years ago.
@Blytheryn The Odyssean is the renamed EX.
Sounds about right, thanks! Gives me a bit of an idea as to where I stand in the queue.
No probs! When did you put your deposit in?
@IbanezDaemon Early November of 2016! I'm actually quite thankful for the wait in some ways - I've refined my order a number of times and my tastes regarding specs have changed. I've been sitting on my current build sheet for months now and I can't find any reason to change anything.
Good stuff. I reckon you'll be in the next batch.
Update: I've had these for a few months now but even so, literally the day I got them in and started playing on them was like I had owned them for 10+ years. The specs, the comfort, the playability, just everything was so dialed in and flawless. Typically it takes a while to get accustomed to a new instrument but these just played with more noticeable fluidity and expected muscle memory than even my oldest guitar. Don't know if that makes sense really but I'll do a better review when I have the time. Just wanted to post up how immensely pleased and incredible these guitars truly are. You would think "oh they look cool I'll keep it on my wall or in the case" but these you really want to just go off on and hammer out every day. Remarkable instruments from every aspect.
How funny, I was just thinking about those twins the other day. I have to go read that NGD again.
Those things came out incredible. Two of my favorite Daemonesses, which is saying a lot.
You're going with the Ironbird right? That's a great choice; the 'bird and stealth are my two favorite pointy shapes. I'm currently zigzagging between a mockingbird or going full-bespoke in a completely avant-garde direction. I'm sure it's oddly liberating to be locked-in to your specs.
Yessir. It was between an Ironbird and a Hadian until the very end, but we both agreed that the Ironbird was the way to go for theme I’m going for on this build. After over two years, it really is. I’m completely at peace with what’s in store, and can’t wait to see how Dylan will work his magic with it.
That sounds wicked. You’ve checked out his Valkenbyrd shape, right?
Speaking of the Valkenbyrd, I have one coming up in the next batch. I think people are gonna be a bit surprised when they see it.
That's awesome, I'm super stoked for your build man. You had a vision and stuck with it 'till the end. I have no doubts your build will be among the standouts in the batch. We demand some filthy morbid angel once you get her in your hands.
Regarding the Valkenbyrd; it's an awesome shape (warrior x mockingbird hybrid?) , but I've always wanted to see Dylan's take on classic BCR shapes; it's a tragedy what happened to the brand. Dylan represents one of the last vanguards of actual craftsmen building extreme metal guitars. It used to be him and Amfisound, but the latter went the way of the dodo.
Cranking out some choice picks from Altars and Domination is the first thing I’m going to do when I get my paws on it. Besides Daemoness there’s Waghorn too, as far as I know.
Hell yeah! I already know of one more Valk in this batch. Looks like it’s going to be a pretty rad one!
RAN guitars are also doing a fine job carrying the torch for extreme shapes. He's built a number of warriors etc. And some original models too. I love the Valkenbyrd too.
GRIMSÆNG has been posted on the instagram and it's glorious
Get some Alexi Pinky vibes, but purple ofc. Too sick.
