Deimel Guitarworks / Klaxon-1 (Custom Made For Simon Taylor-Davies / Aluminium Neck) / 2008 / Black / Aluminium / Guitar For Sale
Here is the opportunity to get your hands on a mouth-watering guitar!
Frank Deimel from Deimel Guitarworks is known for making guitars with solid German craftsmanship, but at the same time pushing boundaries - And it has made the stars flock to Frank to have built a guitar, the waiting time is currently around one year.
This guitar was built for Simon Taylor-Davies from the band Klaxons (Echoes, Golden Skans, It's not over yet..), in 2008 and has played at Glastonbury etc.
I bought it directly from Simon and is the second owner.
It shows that it have been a 'member' of a professional band, with its own guitar technician - there is nothing to put a finger on, pickups plays like a dream and there is no crunch from pots - frets are perfect with loads of life in them.
Aluminium neck was purchased by Frank Deimel and made by Bailey Custom, quote from Greg Baily:
This neck was made by Bailey Custom. No CNC equipment was used. The neck was made with manual machine tools and most of the curves and contours were filed, sanded and polished by hand. The dots are black phenolic. The neck is solid 6061 aluminum. Completed in 2008.
At this time, it is the ONLY left handed aluminum neck made by Bailey Custom.
No serious dings and dongs, just normal road wear that can be polished out with elbow grease - or as I chose, be testament to a life of concerts for thousands of people.
