Admired for his singing, songwriting, and guitar playing with groundbreaking Seattle grungers Soundgarden, in addition to his solo work and contributions to later bands like Audioslave and Temple Of The Dog, Chris Cornell was a major creative force in alternative music from the mid 1980s until his untimely suicide at the age of 52.

In addition to his powerful four-octave vocal range, he was a distinguished guitarist, and had long shown a love of Gibson electrics with some alternative twists; little surprise therefore that Gibson’s Memphis division sought to capture the star’s certified looks and appointments in a great new ES-335 built with full Gibson quality and tradition behind it.

The Chris Cornell ES-335 boasts new innovations for the legendary and original thinline semi-hollow electric guitar, boasting a pair of Jason Lollar™ Lollartron® pickups, for that fat-but-jangly late ’50s to early ’60s humbucker-fired twang that fuels Chris Cornell’s tone. Purchasers are being offered a choice of an Olive Drab Green or Flat Black finish in nitrocellulose lacquer, with a Bigsby™ vibrato option on the former, thereby extending the individuality of this unique artist’s model. From its superbly original tones to its stunningly distinctive looks, the Chris Cornell ES-335 is a powerful new performer from Gibson Memphis – rather like the man himself.
