Guitar signed by Chris Cornell tribute performers up for auction

ABC/Randy HolmesA limited edition Gibson guitar signed by several artists who performed at the Chris Cornell tribute concert earlier this month is up for auction.

The guitar, a special ES-335 Gibson created in honor of the late Soundgarden frontman, is signed by Dave Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Pat Smear and Chris Shiflett of Foo Fighters, Metallica‘s Kirk Hammett and Cornell’s Audioslave band mate Tom Morello, as well as actor Brad Pitt, pop star Miley Cyrus and country musician Chris Stapleton.

If you’d like to place a bid, visit eBay.com. Proceeds from the auction will raise funds for the Epidermolysis Bullosa Medical Research Foundation, which aims to find a cure for the rare genetic disease, as well as the Chris and Vicky Cornell Foundation.

You’ll also have a chance to buy an unsigned edition of the guitar this spring, when Gibson will release a limited edition run of 250 pieces.
