Kurt Cobain's famous 'F*** Elvis' Mosrite guitar is to be auctioned in Texas next month: A guitar owned by Kurt Cobain is going to be sold off at the Icons Of The 20th Century Music Action, which will also feature other instruments owned by famous musicians.
This is the first time that an instrument owned by Cobain will be auctioned off to the public. Cobain’s Mark IV Mosrite Gospel is said to be the only known solid body version of the traditionally hollow bodied model. The original case for the instrument has been painted over since Cobain owned it, but you can still see "Nirvana" painted onto the case as well as the words "F*** Elvis."
April 5 marks the 10th anniversary of Cobain’s suicide.
