Kurt Cobain's MTV Unplugged guitar sells for $6m at auction https://t.co/NBdTTlKvdo— BBC News (World) (@BBCWorld) June 21, 2020
The retro acoustic-electric 1959 Martin D-18E played by Kurt Cobain during Nirvana's famous acoustic unplugged session is officially the world's most expensive guitar ever sold at auction for $6 million. It has surpassed Pink Floyd's David Gilmour's Fender Strat. This is the same guitar that daughter Frances Bean Cobain fought for and ultimately lost in her divorce to ex-husband Isaiah Silva. Her ex selling this comes to no surprise to anyone here on ONTD except that it took him this long to sell it - 2 years.

The guitar was purchased by Rode Microphones founder Peter Freedman. He will be taking the guitar on a worldwide tour with all proceeds going towards musical arts programs. OP hopes Freedman does the right thing after the tour and gifts it back to Frances Bean.
