After getting the Les Paul, I thought there was no way I could get another case of GAS for several months.. But I was wrong.. so wrong.
Some poor sod left a Gibson Trini Lopez in the pawnshop and never redeemed it.
I am super keen to buy it... but in another thread.. some folks suggested I may be buying a fake.. for some reason ( I must look like a fucking idiot ehh..lol )
So I am going to get an authorized Gibson repairer to give it a quick inspection.
The owner of the shop selling it was more than happy to let me get it inspected... just to keep me happy.
So I have the guitar for the evening.. MUUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
I am 99.999999999999999% sure it is legit.
The pups sound spot on.
And it has the Gibson version of that "New car smell" lol
This thing is incredible to play.. Just like the LP.
Even with dead strings.. it shits all over the sounds I get out of that 335 copy I scored a few weeks ago..
it just sounds fucking big.
The crazy part is.. I can pay a small depo.. and take it home and pay it off over several months. (Shop owner knows I am on the crazy pension.. and is looking after a long time customer price wise)
I am getting it at a very nice price compared to the 2 other Trini Lopez Gibson guitars on sale here in OZ. (By a fair margin)
So I will be getting .. unless I have been suckered by the best goddam clone of a Gibson I have ever seen. (We get a third party's opinion to make sure it is legit.)
Tis dark outside.. So I will take some snaps tomorrow.
I am going to be up all night playing the fucking hell out of this guitar.
If it's legit you got yourself a pretty unique fiddle man
