Gibson Alvin Lee "Big Red" ES 335. A replica of the famous "Big Red" ES 335, full of stickers, played by Alvin Lee of Ten Years After (as seen in Woodstock!). Alvin liked the sound of Strats but was not confortable with the dimension of the guitar and volume knobs placement. So he installed on a piece of plastic the bridge pickup of the strat in the mid of the Es335, added a volume pot and connected it to the output (so you can never switch it off, just pull down volume).
