With only 250 models available the Chris Corrnell Tribute will be a special memory for the true followers and fans of Chris.

 

In the past Gibson partnered with Chris to work on his original ES-335 Artist Model and it was immediately clear that he had an innovative eye for guitar design. Features like the aged Lollartron humbucking pickups, clear “no number” Top Hat knobs, Olive Drab Satin finish, and Mother-of-Pearl Chris Cornell ‘signature’ peghead were all part of the design.

“Chris Cornell was not only one of the most iconic singer songwriters of all time; he was a modern innovator who left a legacy that transcends music genres and generations,” says Cesar Gueikian, Chief Merchant Officer, 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.”

 

At least one of #250 will be available through TFOA. Inquire now.
