Gibson Dave Grohl DG-335 The Gibson DG-335 is not for guitarists on a budget—who it is for, is die-hard Foo Fighters fans, 335 fans, or both. Essentially an updated version of Grohl’s beloved Trini Lopez models, the DG-335 features diamond F-holes and a non-reverse Firebird headstock, making sure the look has attitude just like the tone. It comes in the fetching Pelham Blue or Metallic Gold, ensuring the looks will offset your limited playing skills. Grohl may not be the first person that comes to mind when you think of guitar heroes, but he has had an extraordinary career with the Foo Fighters, not to mention that band he played drums in before that. The DG-335 is perfect for rocking, but considering it is a 335, it can go anywhere and play anything— no genre is left out with this beauty. If you’re looking for an heirloom instrument, you’re a collector, or you just want to slay at open mic playing “Best of You,” the Gibson DG-335 is zero pretender, all contender. 39
