my guitars

this guitar's pet name:
FZ-Roxy SG
serial number:
SG - FZ prototype
Cherry Red
This is a prototype Frank Zappa SG built to my specifications by Gibson. I will be using it on my European and US tours in the Fall and Winter of 2012. Hopefully, fans will be able to get to own one of these in the near future.

It is an exact replica of Frank's Roxy era guitar which started its life as an SG Special with P90s and no trem. Frank tweaked it a lot in the early 70s and it morphed into this by '74.

It later ended up with a mirror pick guard over the whole body and some advanced electronics. I decided to have it reproduced to match Roxy/Apostrophe era since this is how the guitar looked and functioned at that time.
