Dweezil Zappa Provides A ‘Rig Tour’
Guitarist Dweezil Zappa recently wrapped the North American leg of his Choice Cuts Tour. At one of the tour’s stops, Zappa spent some time detailing his equipment setup for a newly posted Rig Tour video.
Zappa showcased his guitar rig for Nick Bowcott of Fort Wayne, Indiana-based musical instrument retailer Sweetwater Sound. The pair toured Zappa’s gear ahead of a show at The Vogue in Indianapolis. Zappa goes into a deep dive on his Sweetwater-repaired Gibson Roxy SG guitar, the type of strings he plays with, his use of dual Fractal Audio Axe Effects units, and all the various pedals and other effects his utilizes onstage.
Zappa talks about his father Frank Zappa’s rigs and throughout the 30-minute video demonstrates the various components that makeup Dweezil’s eclectic tone. Watch his Rig Tour below:
