A guitar previously belonging to Nirvana‘s Kurt Cobain has gone on sale in an online auction.

The item has been given a guide price of £100,000, with the online auction running at CooperOwen auction site until May 20.

According to a press release, the guitar was given by Cobain to audience member Guillaume Enault, who was at the band’s gig in Rennes, France during February 1994.

The guitar, a black and white Fender Stratocaster, was supposedly used by Cobain “specifically for the end of set jamming and destruction.”

The owner states that the guitar wasn’t used during the band’s European tour but dates back to Nirvana’s final US tour the previous year.
