The Zappa Trust has announced a new book that will provide a comprehensive look at the gear Frank Zappa used over the course of his nearly 30-year career. 

Zappa Gear: The Unique Guitars, Amplifiers, Effects Units, Keyboards and Studio Equipment was written by Mick Ekers, and features a foreword by Dweezil Zappa. It is set for a November 29 release.

The book features over 180 photographs of Zappa's guitars and equipment - everything from his Marshalls and Gibson SGs to his wah-wah pedals and Synclavier - taken by the author at Zappa's UMRK studio in Los Angeles.

The book also discusses some of the inventors and engineers who created many of the instruments that Zappa would put to good use.
