Kurt Cobain’s Guitar From ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ Music Video Up For Auction In May

Kurt Cobain’s guitar that he played in Nirvana’s 1991 “Smells Like Teen Spirit” music video will be up for auction next month, with experts estimating it’ll go for a final selling price between $600,000 and $800,000.

The 1969 left-handed Fender Mustang guitar will be available for bidding during Julien’s Auctions’ “Music Icons” event, taking place both online and live in New York on May 20, 21, and 22.

It’s one of two Fender Mustangs that the Nirvana frontman owned before his death. Cobain died by suicide on April 5, 1994 at age 27.
