The guitar is essentially a re-issue of Cornell’s signature guitar, the ES335, which was initially released back in 2013 except this version comes with Cornell’s signature on the headstock.
The guitar was unveiled at the Chris Cornell tribute concert, I Am The Highway: A Tribute To Chris Cornell, which went down in LA on January 16th. The concert featured a whole slew of performances from the likes of Dave Grohl, Metallica and Josh Homme to name a few.
The concert also featured special performances from the remaining members of both Soundgarden and Audioslave, with the latter delivering a five-song set with a whole bunch of guest vocalists, including Dave Grohl and Juliette Lewis, according to Ultimate Classic Rock.

We are honored to announce the re-release of the Chris Cornell Tribute 335 and to be part of tomorrow’s “I Am The Highway: A Tribute to Chris Cornell” concert at the Forum in Los Angeles. A night that not only pays tribute to Cornell, but will also help raise awareness for two causes he was passionate about: the Chris and Vicky Cornell Foundation, which helps vulnerable children, and The Epidermolysis Bullosa Medical Research Foundation. “I am not your blowing wind, I am the lightning. I am not your autumn moon, I am the night.” #ChrisCornell #KeepThePromise #IAmTheHighway #gibson
