At 3:31 in this interview with Premier Guitar, Larry Carlton says, "This 335, this is a 1968. I got a letter from a fan and basically it took six months for the letter to get to me you know it went to the offices and people filed it away anyway this guy said you’re my favorite guitar player and this guitar that I have is a ‘68 335 that's been not played in, was it seventeen years? Yeah seventeen years and he said I would like to give it to you as a backup guitar if you like it and if you don't like it please don't keep it well he sent it and it's just just great so this was a gift from a fan." When asked if it sounds similar to his number one, Larry responds, "Yeah it does, it really does. And the tone was very very similar and so what I did though is I wanted to experiment so I put PAF pickups, old matched PAF pickups in this one so it wouldn't try to sound exactly yeah so it gives me a whole different world I play this one tone wise."more
