Alvin Lee ES-335 '69 Festival'

When Ten Years After took their heavy, manic blues-rock to the stage at Woodstock in 1969, they unleashed a performance that came to define not just the legendary festival, but the spirit and sound of a movement. Following their set, which ended in a blistering rendition of ‘I’m Going Home,’ Ten Years After catapulted to stardom and Alvin Lee joined Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix and Keith Richards as one of the most influential guitar gods of the time. In honor of the 50th Anniversary of Woodstock, Gibson is proud to present this Alvin Lee ES-335 ‘69 Festival’ model, built to the exact specifications of the guitar Lee used during his jaw-dropping performance. It includes all the stickers, aging, modifications and mojo of the original. Only 50 of these limited edition models will be sold worldwide. + expand +
