Kurt Cobain’s MTV Unplugged Guitar To Be Auctioned Off

The 1959 Martin D-18E acoustic electric guitar Kurt Cobain played during Nirvana's famous MTV Unplugged is being auctioned off on June 19th by Julien's Auctions in Beverly Hills, CA, valued at $1,000,000. Now before you think Courtney is looking for money, just know it's not her auctioning it off. Courtney and her daughter with Kurt, Francis, have been in a war over the guitar with Francis' ex-hubby for years. Apparently the ex is claiming the guitar was gifted to him as a wedding present, refused to return it during the divorce and a judge granted him the guitar as part of the divorce...so yeah, looks like the ex is the one trying to get $$ for it.

A few years ago, the cardigan Kurt wore in the episode sold for $100,000.
