Soundgarden: Gibson announces Chris Cornell signature guitar

Gibson has announced its exclusive partnership with multi-Grammy-Award-winning musician Chris Cornell of Soundgarden.

Cornell has designed two special-edition guitars that will be available at Gibson authorized dealers globally this April.

The first model is an ES 335 with Lollar Tron pickups and a bigsby in army green, and the second is an ES 335 with Lollar Tron pickups in flat black.

Both models were made with brushed nickel hardware and Grover brushed nickel machine heads and tuners. The guitars will be sold in a Gibson Hardcase signed by Chris and only 250 of each model have been manufactured for purchase.

"I am honored to have designed a signature guitar for Gibson, and look forward to using it on tour with Soundgarden in May," said Cornell.

The reunited Seatte rockers return to the road with dates starting May 3rd in Atlantic City, NJ.

Soundgarden released a new album, “King Animal,” last fall.
