    zumalive099636-Kurt-Cobain-of-Nirva Gibson.com’s Lifestyle is reporting that Kurt Cobain‘s infamous Fender Mustang that was used on Nirvana‘s first US tour was auctioned off to an undisclosed collector who bought the guitar for a cool one-hundred grand.

    The owner of the guitar, a punk guitar player that goes by the name “Sluggo”,  probably had no clue at the time that he would ever get that much for the guitar. I imagine as years passed he realized he was sitting on a gold-mine but probably didn’t really want to part with it.

    The story goes that Cobain smashed the guitar onstage during a gig (which wasn’t uncommon for Cobain), leaving him guitar-less for his next gig. He ended up trading the smashed guitar to “Sluggo” for a working guitar so he could play the next gig during tough times for the band.
