New Dave Grohl inspired Gibson guitar

As reported by [EGR] and [Gearwire], Gibson adds another great model to it’s “Inspired by” series with the new Dave Grohl inspired DG-335 semi-hollowbody.

Dave Grohl

Grohl has been a long time Gibson user almost seen exclusively with Gibson guitars on stage, including various Explorer’s, Les Pauls, and SGs. Especially if you leave out the period where he used the Ampeg / Dan Armstrong plexi guitars you rarely see him with anything else.

Grohl’s DG-335 has a Firebird-style headstock with six-side tuners, ES-335 semi-hollow body, split diamond inlays inspired by the Trini Lopez signature model, and Burstbucker pickups. Features from musicians friend shown below.
