Ten Essential Gibson SG Albums
By Glenn Kimpton, pp 50-51

Includes Frank Zappa & The Monsters - Roxy & Elsewhere. A very good Freudian slip.

Zappa’s ‘Baby Snakes’ SG of the late ‘70s was actually an obscure custom copy, but the ‘Roxy’ model he used for this album was a Gibson, albeit modified with various switches and preamps. His son Dweezil has since stated that Frank’s tone is impossible to emulate; and even the briefest of listens to this rollercoaster album will back that claim.
Key track: ‘Cheepnis’
