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.

ABR-1 Tune-o-matic Bridge

The standard for simplicity & functionality

The ABR-1 Tune-o-matic bridge was the brainchild of legendary Gibson president Ted McCarty in 1954, setting a standard for simplicity and functionality that has never been bettered. The ABR-1 is slotted directly into the body of the guitar using a separate stud and thumbwheel, providing a firm seating for the strings and allowing players the ability to adjust and fine tune intonation and string height in a matter of minutes. It also yields a great union between the strings and body, which results in excellent vintage tone and sustain.
