Another high price tag for another piece of Nirvana history: Blabbermouth is reporting that Kurt Cobain's Fender Mustang just sold for almost half a million dollars!
During their first tour in 1989, Kurt Cobain smashed his Fender Mustang at the end of the show at the Sonic Temple in Wilkinsburg, Pennsylvania. Kurt ended up trading the Fender to Sluggo Cawley of the band Hullabaloo for another broken guitar and wrote on it:
Thank for the trade
If its illegal to Rock and Roll, then throw my ass in jail
That guitar was just sold this weekend at Julien's Auctions "Icons And Idols: Rock 'N' Roll" auction for $486,400, more than double the original estimation of $200,000!
