Cobain Guitar Goes For $117,500 In Auction

A guitar once owned by Kurt Cobain has been auctioned and has fetched a huge sum. The instrument was sold for $117,500 at the auction at the Heritage Galleries in Dallas, Texas, according to BBC.

The guitar is the only known example in existence of a right-handed 1960’s Mosrite Gospel Mark IV and was bought by Cobain in San Francisco in 1990 and modified by him for a left-handed player.

The customised guitar is the first of the Nirvana star’s instruments to go on public sale since his death ten years ago.

Other instruments at the auction include a piano owned by Elton John, Roger McGuinn from The Byrds’ custom-built guitar, a Woodstock ticket autographed by Jimi Hendrix and John Lennon’s 1975 Grammy Medal.
