Dweezil Zappa honours father on custom Fender Stratocaster
A picture of the new instrument was showcased in Guitar Player magazine, where the younger Zappa also spoke about how he had been inspired by his father's "reckless abandon" when it came to making music, reports the Fender blog.
Dweezil performs his dad's music in Zappa Plays Zappa and he said he often focuses on the rhythmic development of guitar solos as his father was a master of the art.
"He was a drummer who became a guitar player, so the rhythmic element within his soloing is ridiculously strong," the musician explained.
Zappa Plays Zappa are currently in the opening stages of a European and North American tour that will celebrate what would have been Frank's 70th birthday.
Dweezil is set to take his Fender Stratocaster to shows in Belgium, France and Sweden, as well as Canada and the US.
