The Heritage ALVIN LEE MODEL was the ES-335 style semi-hollow bodied signature model of Alvin Lee and is based on Lee's iconic  "Big Red" 1958 Gibson ES-335. The Heritage Alvin Lee Model was made from 1993 to 1996 and had a cream bound solid curly maple top and back with solid curly maple sides. The set neck was one piece mahogany, cream bound with a 24.75" scale length and ebony fingerboard with dot inlays. This guitar had two humbucking pickups plus a single coil in the middle position (Alvin Lee modded his original ES-335 by adding a stratocaster single coil pickup in the middle position). Hardware was chrome plated and the transparent cherry finished body was 16 inches wide and 1.5 inches thick.
