Soundgarden’s Chris Cornell Teams With Gibson for Two Limited Edition Guitars
The first model is an ES 335 with Lollar Tron pickups and a Bigsby in army green. The second model is also an ES 335 with Lollar Tron pickups, but this one comes in a flat back. Both models were made and brushed with nickel hardware and Grover brushed nickel machine heads and tuners.
The guitars will be sold in a Gibson hardcase signed by Cornell and only 250 of each model have been manufactured for purchase.
Cornell says, "I am honored to have designed a Signature guitar for Gibson and look forward to using it on tour with Soundgarden in May."
That tour launches May 3 in Atlantic City, N.J., and Cornell is expected to use both guitars live during the band's late spring run.
