Guitar Of The Week:Gibson Custom - Trini Lopez Standard
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.
