When Chris Cornell played live, he often pulled out a Gibson SG, one of his favourite guitars.
In Chris’ memory, Gibson will reissue the 2013 ES-335 in an olive drab finish with Chris’ preferred pickups and knobs.
Cesar Gueikian of Gibson: “It is our honor to release this tribute ES-335 in his memory. It’s a guitar Chris fell in love with and which became a part of his creative expression. Chris was a special artist, and we hope that this guitar will inspire fans to find their sound, and inspiration, just like Chris did, for many years to come.”
Want one? Good luck. Only 250 will be made. Two have already been donated as prizes to raise money for The Chris and Vicky Cornell Foundation and The Epidermolysis Bullosa Medical Research Foundation. You can bid here. Godspeed.
