Grohl, known for his powerful and passionate performances with the Foo Fighters and Nirvana, has long favored Gibson guitars. The Epiphone Dave Grohl DG-335 merges the best of the classic ES-335 design with Grohl’s beloved Trini Lopez specifications, delivering a unique playing experience.

Grohl’s signature DG-335 design (both the new Epiphone and the previous Gibson model) isn’t based on a typical ES-335. He’s a big fan of the Gibson Trini Lopez model, known for its diamond-shaped sound holes and distinctive headstock. Grohl’s guitar marries this look with the ES-335 body style. His love for this model comes from a 1967 Gibson Trini Lopez that was his main studio guitar and has been featured on the majority of the band’s album. He has described it as being the core “sound of the Foo Fighters”.

Featuring a semi-hollow ES-body with distinctive bound diamond-shaped sound holes, the signature guitar boasts a one-piece mahogany neck with an elliptical profile for smooth playability. The Trini Lopez-style headstock with Grover® Mini Rotomatic® tuners adds a touch of vintage flair.

Under the hood, the guitar incorporates Dave Grohl’s preferred Gibson USA Burstbucker™ pickups. The Burstbucker 2 in the neck and Burstbucker 3 in the bridge positions deliver the raw power and dynamic range synonymous with Grohl’s sound.

The Epiphone Dave Grohl DG-335 comes complete with a custom hardshell case featuring Grohl’s signature.
