Iconic Nirvana guitar goes under the hammer
The bass guitar was broken in the band's legendary Smells Like Teen Spirit video, and it is expected to fetch between £15,000 and £25,000 when it goes under the hammer at a Christie's auction in London on November 29th, the Independent reports.
Krist Novoselic, Nirvana's bassist, bought the Zen-On from a pawn shop prior to the band shooting the video for what has gone on to be one of the genre-defining songs of the last 20 years.
The instrument is seen being smashed up by Novoselic's late band mate Kurt Kobain during the 1991 video. The body of the guitar was saved by a teenage extra from a crowd in the school gymnasium.
Novoselic was a key part of the grunge band and recorded a number iconic records before Kobain's untimely death in 1994.
Other items within the auction include Bob Dylan's high school yearbook and Indiana Jones' whip as well as the Holy Grail which featured in the Last Crusade film.Posted on 31 Oct 2012 14:36 to category : Instruments News
