This is one of the coolest guitars ever produced & what still makes this business fun. Where you can still come across 1-of-a-kind guitars every so often where they’ve remained undiscovered until today ! This is, let alone, a very rare fat bodied Trini Lopez Custom. Its Cherry Sunburst finish is bright & beautiful over a very grainy Maple body on its front, back & sides.  She has a 1 piece mahogany neck w/a bound rosewood fingerboard w/double triangle inlays for each fret marker. Its crazy Fender-ish type bound headstock has factory Grover tuners. Trini’s are known for their outrageous Diamond shaped F-holes that stand out on this axe. Now what makes this particular example a 1-off “Special” is as stated by its Orange label, it has all Gold Hardware (these came w/chrome parts) & its long “Maestro” Vibrola w/its Lyre engraving (these all came w/a simple trapeze tailpiece w/a wood insert), never seen on one of these. Finally its wildest item from new is a fabulous set of pickups w/1 Pat.# stickered pickup in its rhythm position & 1 ultra rare PAF stickered pickup in its lead position. It’s 1 of a few we’ve encountered w/a PAF in it as late as 1965. The story goes “Gold” covered pickups sat around from their limited use & some made it in guitars far later…but only in the lead posttion most having shorter leads. Its 100% original (other than a repro tremolo arm), exceptionally clean & comes w/its original Black/Yella lined hard case. Be the only 1 on your block to have this great piece of guitar history.
