Gibson ES-335

Production Start: 
1958

The Gibson ES-335 is the world's first commercial thinline arched-top semi-acoustic electric guitar. Released as part of its ES (Electric Spanish) series, it is neither hollow nor solid; instead, a solid wood block runs through the center of its body. The side "wings" are hollow, and the top has two violin-style f-holes over the hollow chambers.

Alvin Lee

Alvin Lee (born Graham Barnes) is an English rock guitarist and singer. He began playing guitar at the age of 13, and with Leo Lyons formed the core of the band Ten Years After in 1960. Influenced by his parents' collection of jazz and blues records, it was the advent of rock and roll that sparked his interest, and guitarists such as Chuck Berry and Scotty Moore provided his inspiration.
