An electric guitar that rocker Kurt Cobain smashed up on stage then donated to a fan during Nirvana's first ever tour has emerged for sale for £25,000.<br />
<br />
Cobain ended the small gig in 1989 at famed music venue Maxwell's with an angry display of rock showmanship, swinging his guitar into the drumkit.<br />
<br />
The neck of the guitar, a cheap Univox Hi-Flier only worth around 60 pounds at the time, broke off of the body as Cobain, then just 22, trashed his instrument.<br />
<br />
Experts have tipped the guitar to sell for 40,000 dollars - around £25,000 - when it goes under the hammer at Sotheby's on June 24.
