This is the guitar that Kurt wrote his music on and carried with him for months from bus to hotel room to airline toward the end of his career. This guitar was not exclusively used for live performance but more for writing and never left his side. It was used from late 1993 until his death in 1994. It is featured on the cover of the book “Nirvana” and on pages 116-123. There are distinguishable markings on the body that can be matched up perfectly with these photos. It also comes with original prints of Kurt playing this guitar and a notarized detailed letter from a crew member. The pickups, bridge, and tuners were changed at one point, as this was a common practice with Kurt’s guitars. This was done by Earnie Bailey, Kurt’s guitar tech. This comes with a letter from Earnie detailing the complete modifications done to this guitar. Earnie also supplied the original receipt for the bridge pickup and a letter from Gibson for the neck pickup that he installed, and has signed photos of this guitar ensuring the authenticity of the instrument. And it still has four of the original strings on the guitar. This now up again for resale! Please inquire for details.
This is a Telecaster that Bruce Springsteen played at the Ventura Theatre in Los Angeles on June 29 1993. Jackson Browne also played that night on stage with Bruce. Bruce signed the guitar at the show and it comes with photos of Bruce on stage with the guitar (photos of Bruce playing it signed and unsigned) and photos of Clarence Clemons holding the guitar. Also comes with a copy of the newspaper article about the concert. A very rare guitar to own. Please call for information and price.
