Classic American guitar manufacturer Gibson has announced the worldwide launch of the new, limited-edition Chris Cornell ES-335 Tribute guitar.

The Chris Cornell ES-335 Tribute guitar honors the rock legend who has left a modern legacy and contribution to music history that transcends genres. Pre-sale officially began on August 27; and on September 3, all Gibson Chris Cornell ES-335 guitars will be sold worldwide through authorized Gibson dealers.

The Gibson Chris Cornell ES-335 guitar was officially unveiled earlier this year at the star-studded “I Am The Highway: A Tribute To Chris Cornell” concert honoring Cornell’s legacy and supporting the Chris And Vicky Cornell Foundation and The Epidermolysis Bullosa Medical Research Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to raising funds and awareness for this painful and debilitating genetic disorder.
