One of a series of Gibson advertisements featuring Gibson endorsing artists, each with a high end electric acoustic guitar. This advertisement was widely reproduced throughout 1965. The illustration was one of a series by Canadian artist Neil Boyle whose distinctive oil-paintings were used on guitar catalogues for Gibson, Epiphone, Kalamazoo and Fender. Other adverts in this series include Wes Montgomery, Kenny Burrell, Tony Mottola and Johnny Smith.
Now, skilled Gibson craftsmen and Gibson's electronic engineers have combined to create a Trini Lopez model guitar that is just as exciting as the young artist who inspired it. In the Thin Body Standard or the Full Body Deluxe, the Trini Lopez Model Gibson is a beautifully crafted, superbly sensitive instrument.
