Gibson SG Frank Zappa Tribute October 27 2012
Fans will get their chance to see the guitar when Dweezil takes it out for a ‘test drive’ on his upcoming European and US tours.
Speaking of the guitar’s development he said:
‘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.’
Dweezil has registered the instrument in theguitarvaults, for more details follow the link to the guitar’s profile page:
