1968 Gibson Trini Lopez - Pick ups swap in Vintage Corner Posted December 30, 2019 · Report reply Hi guys! I m new to the forum but and I have a question for you. I recently ( a few months ago) bought a 1968 Gibson Trini Lopez . Guitar seems in good shape, mostly original . The pick ups however have obviously been removed at some point. One is a Patent number and the other seems to be also one but the label is gone so I can't really tell for sure. No way to tell for sure if they are the original pick ups to the guitar. I have been teasing the idea, since pick ups were already removed at some point, to swamp them for a pair of TV Jones Classics. Do you have any input regarding this? Good idea? Bad idea? other pick ups suggestions? I m not really worried about the guitar losing value because : 1) I don't intend to sell it anytime soon and, 2) Pick ups have already been detached at some point. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. I have attached a few pics for reference. Thanks guys.
