Trinidad Trini Lopez III was a Mexican-American Latin folk-pop guitarist from Dallas, Texas. The Lopez Standard was Gibson's most successful artist model of the period. Between 1966 and 67, it sold 1268 units, more than all the other artist models combined during that period. Lopez specified a non-reverse headstock with six-on-a-side tuner configuration, a preference he likely developed playing Fenders early in his career. Another signature mark of the Trini Lopez Standard is the diamond fret markers and sound holes. This guitar has seen a recent boom in popularity with Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters taking styling cues from the Lopez Standard for his own signature guitar. This guitar is all original, sporting a beautiful faded cherry finish and has a masterfully executed headstock crack repair.
