    Years ago I was in a band and the 2nd guitarist had a Gibson Trini Lopez, a blond Fender Bandmaster amp and a analog delay pedal and the guy could sound just like Jimmy Page and Steve Howe with that minimal rig! He was amazing and had a great tone.

    Not long afterward he traded the Trini & Bandmaster for a Strat with a Floyd Rose and a Marshall, and ended up sounding like every other 1980's metal shredder out there.......

    I notice that as well as a smaller pickguard, the current Trini model has pointed rather than rounded horns. (I kinda like the pointy ones) They're nice looking guitars, but the strange F-holes seem out of character with the classic look of the rest of it. By the way, that same one on eBay is back down to 1060.00 again.
