George Bisceglia is a custom guitar builder in San Jose, California. He has built guitars for Gary Pihl of Boston, Dave Meniketti and John Nymann of Y&T, Jack Foster III of December People and Rudy Parris contestant on “The Voice.”
The second guitar he built was for Dave Meniketti who plays it live and on CDs. Wendy Dio, the widow or Ronnie James Dio, created a cancer fund after Ronnie’s death in 2010. George decided to build “The Slasher” a custom guitar of his own design that would be auctioned on the 2015 Monsters of Rock cruise with the proceeds to benefit Wendy’s cancer fund.
In Part One of this guitar journey we learn about George’s background and see the crafting of the guitar partially on a numerical control machine at the Tech Shop in San Jose. Then it’s on to Custom Paint by Daneen for finishing.
