Gibson have revealed details about signature axes for the Soundgarden and Mastodon guitarists.

Unveiled at Musikmesse in Frankfurt, the Bill Kelliher 'Golden Axe' Explorer gives massive Mastodon tone to an iconic Gibson Explorer.

The 'Golden Axe' uses a mahogany body and solid mahogany neck to yield plenty of richness and depth, along with excellent sustain.

The contemporary, powerful LACE Nitro Hemi humbuckers excel at high-gain metal tones with thumping lows and punchy, aggressive mids, whilst retaining outstanding clarity and sweet bell-like highs.

Gold-plated hardware, high-quality Grover Mini tuners, a cream pickguard with hot-stamped Mastodon logo and Bill's choice of Go-Gold Burst finish in high-gloss nitrocellulose lacquer complete the package.

Little details of the Chris Cornell signature model have emerged, but we know the model is an ES-335 with a pair of Lollar pickups.
