Kurt Cobain's Fender Mustang from Nirvana's 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' Video Is Up for Auction

Pretty much anything Kurt Cobain touched has gone for big bucks when it hit the auction block.  Someone paid $22,400 for a plate he wrote their 9:30 Club set list on after using it to eat a slice of pizza.  



Next month - the Nirvana frontman’s 1969 left-handed Fender Mustang guitar, witha Competition Lake Placid blue finish with a matching headstock - used in the video for the band's break out hit Smells Like Teen Spirit - will hit the auction block.

The guitar is expected to go for $600,000 to $800,000 at auction and a portion of the proceeds will go to Kicking The Stigma, an initiative aimed at raising awareness about mental health disorders and removing the stigmas that come with discussing mental health.


Along with other items belonging the Cobain, the auction will feature items from  The Beatles, Eddie Van Halen, QUEEN, Elvis Presley, Lady Gaga, Michael Jackson, Madonna, Little Richard, Elton John, Bob Dylan, Erica Clapton, Cher, Bob Marley, Jimi Hendrix and more.  Check it out at juliensauctions.com
