GIbson first revealed the guitar during the "I Am the Highway: A Tribute to Chris Cornell" concert in Los Angeles where the company made a donation to both the Chris & Vicky Cornell Foundation, a nonprofit which "supports organizations that provide shelter and resources for homeless, abused and at risk youth, children living in refugee camps and victims of human trafficking", and the Epidermolysis Bullosa Medical Research Foundation, which supports those with rare genetic connective tissue disorders.

The limited-edition guitar is currently available for pre-sale before going worldwide on September 3rd, 2019.
