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.
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.
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.
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.
