About the Guitar:
This is a Gibson custom shop build replica of Alvin Lee's 1959 ES-335 (which Lee nicknamed Big Red) that was used by him during the Woodstock Festival, 1969. It sported a faster '60s block inlay neck and an added pickup in the center position. When he cranked out the scorching solo to "Going Home" at Woodstock, his iconic axe became preserved for all time on celluloid. Here it is in the flesh, reproduced with utmost precision right down to the cool stickers and faded cherry finish.
