Press Release

NASHVILLE, Tenn., Sept. 27 — Gibson Guitar, the world’s premier musical instrument manufacturer and leader in music technology, announced the release of the new Dave Grohl model guitar, the DG-335, that will be available to Foo Fighters fans and guitarists, alike, on Thursday, October 4th, 2007. This new guitar is inspired by Grohl’s much loved Trini Lopez signature model. The new model, created by the artisans at the Gibson Custom Shop with the input of Grohl himself, will provide rock fans a chance to channel the Foo Fighters’ renowned lead singer.

Grohl has always been a long-time fan of the Trini Lopez signature model guitar that Gibson built from 1964-1971. The Trini Lopez model was a striking take on Gibson’s classic ES-335 semi-hollow body guitar, which is a hybrid between a solidbody and a hollowbody. Grohl has a particular love for the Trini Lopez in a rare Pelham Blue color that was used by the Gibson Custom Shop in producing this limited model.

Grohl’s Inspired By DG-335 has the classic Firebird-style headstock with six-on-a-side tuners set into an ES-335 style semi-hollow body. The body of the guitar has stylish diamond f-holes and a double cutaway design. The inlays on the rosewood fretboard are acrylic split diamond, which is a unique feature that remains from the original Trini Lopez model. Grohl’s taste is even expressed through the pickups, which are Burstbucker 1 in the neck and Burstbucker 2 in the bridge. These pickups are within the original Patent Applied For humbucking spec, known for their ability to create clean and articulate distortion and responsible for helping to deliver the amazing tones that Grohl has become famous for while fronting the ever popular Foo Fighters.

The guitar is offered in Grohl’s favorite Pelham Blue. An Ebony version is also available. The MSRP is $4,468 for the blue and $3,880 for the ebony. Each guitar includes a Custom Shop case and special certificate of authenticity signed by Grohl, himself.
