Gibson Larry Carlton ES-335 Guitar Review :: Electric Guitars Reviews
evenness and fatness that isn't dark
As Larry Carlton has shown throughout his multi-faceted career as a first-call session guitarist and a successful recording artist,
the ES-335 is the perfect guitar for any musical setting. The Gibson Larry Carlton ES-335 electric Guitar features all the personal specs of the man
known as “Mr. ES-335,” from the custom neck profile to the “Carlton Burst” finish.
"It's common knowledge that, by luck, my Es-335 sounds better than any we had ever heard in the '70s," says Carlton, "it has a unique
evenness and fatness that isn't dark. I made sure they copied it very closely." As the guitar ace on over 3,000 studio dates, Larry
prized his ES-335 for its amazing versatility for everything from light pop to hard bop. Custom heavy neck profile, Carlton Burst finish,
and '57 Classic humbuckers make it just like the master's.
