The acoustic guitar of the late leader of the Nirvana group, Kurt Cobain, was sold at a Julien’s Auctions auction in the United States for a record $ 6 million, the auction house said on its Twitter page.
The statement said the instrument was sold for $ 6,010,000, a new world record for guitars. At the same time, this lot was initially estimated at $ 1-2 million.
The previous record belonged to the Martin D-35 acoustic guitar of one of the leaders of the Pink Floyd group, David Gilmore, who sold for just over $ 1 million in June 2019. Then the record previously set by Eric Clapton’s guitar was broken.
