Based on thorough scans of the coveted original models, the 1964 Trini Lopez Standard Reissue gives you an authentic vintage ownership experience from the chunky ’64 neck profile to the unique trapeze tailpiece. “The Gibson guitar that was inspired by Trini Lopez is as exciting as the young performer who helped create it,” reads one of Gibson’s original 1960s advertisements. While Trini Lopez sadly passed away in August 2020, he continued to perform with his namesake model into his 80s, and the model is also favored by many other famous musicians from Dave Grohl to Noel Gallagher. Offered in Cherry and Ebony finishes, with more available to order from dealers via Made 2 Measure.
