Chris Cornell’s “Superunknown” Jazzmaster Sells At Auction

Someone just shelled out some big bucks for Chris Cornell’s “Superunknown” Jazzmaster.

Cornell used the 1966 candy apple red Fender guitar while recording Soundgarden’s iconic 1994 album.

It sold for $125,000. (Some predicted though it would go for as high as $250,000 at auction)

At the same auction, Eric Clapton’s 1954 “Slowhand” Strat failed to get a single bid. It had a starting price of $1 million.

What’s one piece of rock history you’d love to get your hands on?
