He plays mainly Firebirds live. Moreso now that their new album is coming out. He does play 335s live some. Firebirds have 6 a side headstocks like Fenders.

Fender Highroller maybe? I though he played 335s

If he even admits she's hot, we have another problem altogether.

Its a Gibson, his own custom, but it is more or less exactly the same as Gibson Trini Lopez custom.
info from GC below:

With a set mahogany neck, rosewood fretboard, diamond soundholes and Burstbucker pickups, this Dave Grohl Signature guitar is perfect for Foo Fighters fans or anyone who wants the versatility of a semi-hollow electric. Hard rock, classic, pop, swing, billy styles and more are all fair game with this beauty. Built around the comfortably-sized ES-335 body, you're likely to find yourself using this axe for just about everything you play. The 50s neck shape is easy on your hand whether you're playing chords or lead, and the combination of Grover tuners and the fixed bridge keep tuning time to a minimum.

From his days as the drummer of Nirvana to his guitar and lead vocal work with his band Foo Fighters, Dave Grohl has been a powerful force in the music world.

Dude, check out the quote again- the first guy was talking about some Explorer-looking thing with an "upside down Fender headstock", which might very well be the Firebird.

But I've seen him with an actual Explorer as well way back in the days... And his RD Artist, which he apparently smashed.

Really? the quote I see says he saw dave with a blue semi-acoustic with diamonds instead of f-holes. I have never seen an explorer or firebird that comes close to that description.....
same as this blue gibson style semiacoustic, has diamods shapes instead of the standard fholes, and a six a side fender shaped headstock

^that is what i am refering to

Yes, I know what you're referring to, but read the WHOLE quote, and you'll notice the mention of a black Explorer.

He plays a Gibson Firebird studio in the 'Pretender' video. Yes it is a proper Gibson.

who care wat the rest of the message says the vital thing is it say pretender video and he only used a firebird in that video. jesus christ you dont know what a firebird is. its not like it can be mistaken easily for other guitars.
