I designed the Basilisk guitar in 2008.   Kevin Riley (http://www.kevinrileytattoos.com) and I built a neon pink prototype that I painted a basilisk on.   I changed the shape around a bit in my painting, Journey to a Heavy Metal Utopia.  Then I hired 40-year master luthier, Neal Moser to hand build me a Basilisk with the perfection and finesse that only he can. The result is stupendous.  Custom Basilisk guitars can be built-to-order by Neal. More recently, I had Neal build me a 7-string version of the Basilisk which is also amazing.  For more information, contact him through his website http://www.nealmoserguitars.com.
