The Chris Cornell ES-335 will be available on September 3, and is available for pre-order now.

"Chris fell in love with this guitar and it became a part of his creative expression," says Gibson Chief Merchant Officer Cesar Gueikian.

"It's our honor to release this tribute ES-335 in his memory. 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."
