Kurt Cobain guitar from MTV's Unplugged auctioned for $6 million






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. For a quick refresher on her divorce and Frances' trash ex husband, check out this post

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.
