One of the guitars the late Chris Cornell used to record Soundgarden‘s 1994 opus Superunknown is up for auction.

The 1966 Fender Jazzmaster, which Cornell also played during Soundgarden’s 1993-1994 tour, is expected to fetch between $175,000 and $250,000.

According to Gotta Have Rock and Roll, the auction site selling the guitar, the instrument is being sold by Chris Bond, a longtime friend of Cornell’s. Bond came to own the guitar in the aftermath of the divorce settlement between Cornell and his first wife, band manager Susan Silver.
