Thanks for clearing that up Graham. (I'm sure Don will be pleased as well)

It's very odd that several of these have appeared for sale around the same time, eh? Not many of us were familiar with the "Demon" reference either, but it does make sense when you see the other names used in the catalogue like "Witch".

So, now that this is all cleared up are you able to give us any more detail about woods used, electronics, etc? This one seems slightly out of step with others in the VP line shown in the cat. Looks more like it belongs in the VS series? :dunno:

Sorry about all the previous confusion. My badd.
Idk if I can do or say any more regarding this "Demon" . It looks just like the $500 offering in Toronto.....ergo it must be a "Demon"..?
Cheers everyone, and Merry Christmas.

I'd definitely be interested in pics. We can always use pics in the models section.

I can PM you the email address. If you have the original camera pics those would be fantastic!

Thanks!!!

Yes !!!!
it is all mahogany
(sorry for my transgressions)

my real concern is the FV, and I know it should probably be into a different section.
pm me
