Retrofret Stock # 4871. Gibson Trini Lopez Standard Model Semi-Hollow Body Electric Guitar (1966), made in Kalamazoo, Michigan, serial # 806133, cherry lacquer finish, laminated maple body, mahogany neck with rosewood fingerboard, original black hard shell case. One of our favorite 60's Gibsons, the Trini Lopez Standard is essentially a cherry red ES-335 with a slightly wacky cosmetic edge! The diamond shaped F-holes and position markers give the guitar a rakish air, while the single-sided headstock adds a certain extra pizzazz. A snazzy engraved rosewood-and-plastic tailpiece insert carries the "Trini Lopez Model" designation, with a couple of extra diamonds. While these guitars are usually referred to as having a "Firebird Style" headstock, this model in fact slightly predates the non-reverse Firebird guitars it shares the design with, so really the later Firebirds have a "Trini head". This example is typical for 1966, with chrome-plated hardware, nylon tune-o-matic saddles, enclosed strip Kluson tuners and the "silver capped" clear plastic knobs that were about to be replaced with the less appealing "amp" style black molded knobs. "Mr Lemon Tree" Trini Lopez himself seems to have never played this model, preferring the "Deluxe" artist model bearing his name that is more similar to a Barney Kessel. The Trini Lopez Standard is the most colorful of the 335 semi-hollowbody family, and is still an unusual visually striking guitar as well as a fine playing instrument.Overall length is 43 1/2 in. (110.5 cm.), 16 in. (40.6 cm.) wide at lower bout, and 1 3/4 in. (4.4 cm.) in depth, measured at side of rim. Scale length is 24 3/4 in. (629 mm.). Width of nut is 1 5/8 in. (41 mm.). Super clean, all original guitar-very little wear anywhere, hardly any checking-one of the nicest we've seen with an equally nice original black/orange lined case. Excellent + Condition.
