Guitar Of The Week:Gibson Custom - Trini Lopez Standard


Guitar Of The Week - Musician's Friend Private Reserve

Trini Lopez Standard

A regular favorite of Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters, Noel  Gallagher of Oasis, and Rusty Anderson of Paul McCartney's band, the  Gibson Trini Lopez Standard guitar is a striking take on Gibson's  classic ES-335 semi-hollowbody. With its distinct diamond-shaped  f-holes, split diamond fingerboard inlays, and 6-on-a-side headstock, it  has a style and class all its own. Originally a popular signature model  built for 1960s pop artist Trini Lopez, many players through the years  have discovered what a sweet sounding and great multi-tasking guitar the  Trini Lopez Standard is. It's got the warmth of a hollowbody, yet has  the power to fuel a rock band.

This reissue from the master craftsmen at Gibson Custom features  the classic appointments that gave the original model its unique look  and sound, including Gibson's famous high-quality laminated maple top,  with matching maple back and rim, finished in an antiqued, faded red hue  that delivers the desired vintage look so commonly sought in today's  guitars. The modern reissue has all of the desirable features of the  earliest mid-'60s version of the original models, most importantly the  full 1-11/16" nut width and a neck profile with a thickness that is  substantial, yet not overwhelming. A pair of Gibson's renowned '57  Classic humbucker pickups gives the Trini Lopez reissue all the vintage  "PAF" tone expected from such a classic guitar. Call today to order one  of the distinctive, versatile, and rich sounding Trini Lopez guitars.
