"This guitar, I've made every single Foo Fighters record with it. This one. This is a fucking beautiful guitar. I saw this in a guitar shop in Bethesda, Maryland. I think it was 1992 or '93 or something like that, I was still in Nirvana when I bought it. I thought it was unusual because it looks like a Gibson ES 335 except that it has diamond-shaped F-holes and has this different headstock on it. And I didn't really know anything about Trini Lopez the artist when I bought it. But this fucking thing, this is the sound of the Foo Fighters - this guitar. On every record I might use other guitars every now and then, but for the most part it's just this," says guitarist Dave Grohl about his Gibson Trini Lopez Standard Reissue Electric Guitar.more
> It was on this record and it was for touring up until now. I’m playing new guitars now live. I went to Gibson Canada right when this tour started and they had one of their Trini Lopez reissues. They asked me to try it out so I took it to our rehearsal space and played it and fell in love with it. It still has that great warmth that hollow bodies have, but it has a little more balls than my Starcasters did. And for our band and me being the only guitar player, it fills the sound out so much better. So I am actually playing those now and I’ve never been happier with my tone. This guitar has been his main one since 2009. He has two models: one in red and one in black.more
