The Zappa Trust has revealed that two Frank Zappa books will be published later this year.
The first is titled Zappa Gear: The Unique Guitars, Amplifiers, Effects Units, Keyboards And Studio Equipment by Mick Ekers, which will also feature a foreword by Dweezil Zappa.
It’ll offer the reader “an unprecedented inside look at the machinery behind the legendary music. In addition to a detailed presentation of the equipment, Zappa Gear also introduces some of the pioneering inventors, engineers, and entrepreneurs without whom the instruments would not exist.”
Zappa Gear will also include illustrations and more than 180 pictures of Zappa’s guitars and equipment.
It’ll be released on November 15 through the Hal Leonard Corporation.
