Kurt Cobain's MTV Unplugged Guitar

Among the most recognizable musical instruments of the '90s, this 1959 Martin D-18E guitar was played by Kurt Cobain during Nirvana's iconic MTV Unplugged in New York performance. Just the seventh of only 302 D-18Es built, it was customized by Cobain with a Bartolini pickup. The guitar will arrive in an original hardshell case decorated by Cobain, along with a half-used pack of Martin guitar strings, three picks, and a suede "stash" bag decorated with a miniature silver spoon, fork, and knife. It will be on display starting May 15 at the Hard Rock Cafe in Piccadilly Circus and at Julien's Auctions Gallery in Beverly Hills starting June 15 ahead of its auction on Friday, June 19 - Saturday, June 20.
