Kurt Cobain Guitar
Feb 16-26, 2017.
In celebration of Kurt Cobain’s extraordinary life and contributions to music, vintage guitar shop Black Book Guitars offers one of the late Nirvana frontman’s guitars. Cobain played this Hagstrom Blue Sparkle Deluxe in the early-1990s. After his death, Courtney Love gave the instrument to one of Cobain’s friends, who also happened to play in a prominent Northwest band. Nineteen years later and rarely played, it made its way to Black Book Guitars, where Fasold was able authenticate it twice. Both authentication documents will be provided with the guitar. 10% of the auction sales will be donated to Transition Projects, a Portland-based non-profit organization that helps the city’s homeless transition to steady housing.
