The Trini Lopez Models were made by Gibson between 1964 and 1971. Trini himself played the Trini Lopez Deluxe (Custom) Model. The Trini Lopez Standard Guitar was a variation on the ES-335 theme with a thin line body, 16” wide. This 24 ¾” scale guitar was 1 ¾” deep, and also featured a double rounded cutaway, and a maple top, back, and rim with cream binding and bound diamond-shaped sound holes. It had a mahogany neck with diamond-shaped pearloid inlays on the 22 fret, rosewood fingerboard. The neck joined the body at the 19th fret. Two humbucking pickups and a tune-o-matic bridge added to the Gibson look and sound. Like The Deluxe, The Trini Lopez Standard Guitar featured 6-on-a-side tuning keys. It was most commonly seen in a cherry finish, but models have been reported in Sparkling Burgundy and Pelham Blue Metallic.

A reissue of the Trini Lopez Standard model (the Gibson Memphis Trini Lopez) has been available since 2009.
