Notes: Just in from the daughter of the original owner! This clean 1968 Gibson Trini Lopez Standard has survived in incredible condition and plays like a new instrument. I flew into Denver, Colorado on my way back from Montana while buying a '41 Gibson SJ-100 to meet this seller. I knew as soon as the case opened that I had to have it. I think you'll love it too.
