An exact replica of the 335 that was the cornerstone of Mr. 335’s unmistakable sound!
“It’s common knowledge that, by luck, my 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, Carlton prized his 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.
