Chris Cornell‘s Superunknown guitar is hitting the auction block.
The late Soundgarden frontman used the 1966 Candy Apple Red Fender Jazzmaster during the recording of the band’s classic album Superunknown. The guitar is estimated to sell for between $175,000 and $250,000.
The guitar was also used during live performances of “My Wave” and “The Day I Tried to Live” during the band’s 1993 and 1994 tour dates, and on the band’s MTV Live N’ Loud show in 1996.
According to producer Michael Beinhorn, Cornell played three guitars on Superunknown: a Gretsch Duo Jet, double-cutaway Gretsch Silver Jet, and the Jazzmaster, which was used on single “Fell on Black Days.”
The auction site Gotta Have Rock And Roll says that Cornell purchased the Jazzmaster in 1993.
