Alice In Chains guitarist Jerry Cantrell has announced a 29-date North American tour in support of his new solo studio album Brighten.

The record will be released on October 29, with the live shows set to kick off at Minneapolis’ First Avenue on March 24 next year and wrap up with a set at San Diego’s House Of Blues on May 8.

News of the live shows comes as Gibson announced a new limited edition Jerry Cantrell “Wino” Les Paul custom guitar. The guitar is the first time the Alice In Chains co-founder has teamed up with Gibson for a project.

Cantrell says: “The "Wino" has always been one of my favourite guitars. It’s a really good-looking guitar. I’m really happy to officially be a part to the Gibson family now and I think we’ve made some really great guitars.”

The guitar features a Murphy Lab aged "Wino" red wine finish over a plain maple top and mahogany body with aged gold hardware, Grover Kidney tuners and 490R and 498T pickups. It also has a Fishman Powerbridge piezo pickup-equipped bridge, three volume controls.

The instrument also comes with a Jerry Cantrell custom case and is limited to just 100 models, with each guitar autographed on the back of the headstock by Cantrell. It’s available to purchase now through the official Gibson website
