This is trans-etching. The guitar is sprayed with a thin coat of trans lacquer and then an image is scraped in with a razor blade. You get a lot of control with the graduations of tone using this technique.
Our latest batch of wood has arrived. Here is just a part of it. There is some incredible figuring in the maple tops and some very exclusive pieces of timber, such as Pink Ivory. Click on the image below for a gallery of some of the tops in stock.
This is probably the only stock Cimmerian that I will offer this year. Towards the end of March, I will be listing World Edge Storm on eBay, so all the interested parties can have their own fair shot at the axe. There will also be an info video coming soon from Adam Getgood and Joe Harvatt about the guitar, with soundclips and riffage etc. Watch this space for more info.
Thanks for all the great feedback and recommendations I’ve had from everyone so far about the site. I will be adding some new sections to the luthiery page shortly, such as pricing information, a custom quote FAQ and a few other elements. If you are waiting for your custom quote form reply, you will get it shortly. I am aiming to get all quote form responses done within seven days of receiving them this year. I had the opportunity to take this double shot of Cerberus and World Edge Storm the other day. A lot of people thought it was photoshopped, but the guitars are resting on special stands I made to that enable me to get better shots and angles when I photograph the guitars.
Welcome to the new Daemoness guitars website. For too many years I have been running the worlds most hardcore metal guitar custom shop via Facebook – a social media website designed by the CIA for teenage girls – but no more. I’m really excited about the future, and using this site as a proper platform for people to find out more about Daemoness. There will be far more content on this website, the content will be illustrated in a lot more detail, and it will be a lot more regular. I will still be maintaining a strong presence within social media, but the REAL Daemoness content will be added here. Over the next few months we will be adding an entire phalanx of guitars straight from hell. There will be new custom options involving new technologies, and later this year – even more new merchandise and t-shirt designs so that you can represent Daemoness even if you are waiting, saving, or just dreaming about a custom build. This year I will be adding new sections to the site when they are ready, and also producing a new video about what we do at the Daemoness workshop.
So… my thanks for all the incredible support from all the metal guitarists and metal fans who have supported Daemoness since its humble beginnings. Your support has made Daemoness what it is today, your investment has made the workshop strong and capable, and your belief has been inspiring. I will always keep Daemoness strong, independent and hardcore in your name.
