In Utero Tour

This is one of only 10 left-handed Mustang models that Cobain supposedly bought ahead of the Nirvana tour.

Bids start at $250,000 at auction and it is expected to sell for between $1,000,000-$2,000,000.

The Sky Stang I

It is known as The Sky Stang I, and Cobain reportedly used the guitar extensively throughout his final tour dates with Nirvana, following the release of their In Utero album.

It has an Electric Blue finish, a distinctive and unique yellow ‘V’ shape on the tortoiseshell pickguard, and a white humbucker in the bridge position.

Rear crack on the body

There is also a sizeable crack on the rear of the instrument, running from the neck heel to about halfway down the guitar’s body.


Cobain can be seen playing the Sky Stang I at the Munich show for a tongue-in-cheek cover of The Cars’ My Best Friend’s Girl.


It was also used for nearly all of the band’s MTV Live and Loud show in December 1993 and has previously been on display in Seattle’s Museum of Pop Culture.
