A jacket of the late rock star Kurt Corbin was sold at a record price of $ 334,000 last year and now it is estimated that the guitar instrument that two cups played with the Nirvana team on the MTV Unplugged program five months before his death may be sold at a price of a million dollars in Auction during the next month.
Auction house Julian said the guitar offered for sale was a Martin D-18E, made in 1959, and played by two cups during the episode’s live recording in 1993.
The guitar has a cover with a small bag inside, in which it is said that Cobain was hiding the heroin that he had been addicted to in his later years.
The Nirvana star Cobain recorded the unplugged episode in November 1993 and was found dead by a bullet he fired at himself in his Seattle home in April 1994 and he was 27 years old.
The album of the Nirvana team, which includes a recording of the episode (MTV Unplugged in New York), was released after Cobbin’s death and won a Grammy award.
Auction house Darren Julian said the guitar was so well-deserved in history as the instrument played by one of the most influential rock icon in one of the most memorable live performances ever.
He added that the million dollars is only a preliminary estimate and the record price of a guitar instrument registered as guitar guitarist David Gilmore, member of the Pink Floyd team, which was sold at a price of 3.9 million dollars at an auction in New York.
Other holdings for Cuban will be sold at the auction in Beverly Hills, including another guitar whose estimates range from $ 60-80,000 and a shirt valued at between $ 10,000 and $ 20,000.
