Hot on the heels of the Chuck Berry 1955 ES-350T, Gibson has announced another rather impressive artist model, the limited edition Alvin Lee ES-335 '69 Festival’ electric guitar.

The new guitar is a replica of Lee’s legendary heavily-modded 335, which he used, among other things, to shred Ten Years After’s I’m Going Home at Woodstock.
