Smashed KURT COBAIN Guitar Sells For Nearly $600,000 At Auction

22 May 2023

The late great grunge star KURT COBAIN loved to smash a guitar,
now and then when he was cooking on stage with Nirvana.

One of them, a black-and-white Fender Stratocaster
that he broke on one of the many ‘Nevermind’ tours.

It was signed by the Nirvana members and features a message
from Cobain to his friend and fellow musician, the late Mark Lanegan,
to whom he reportedly gave the guitar in 1992.

The message: “Hell-o Mark! Love, Your Pal, Kurdt Kobain / Washed up rockstar.”

The guitar sold at an auction in New York last weekend
for nearly $600,000. Smells like a lot of money.
