    If I had $100,000 to just spend on a hero's guitar, I'd have bought it too. That was his main axe.

    I'm guessing it was his Mustang that went for that much. I wasn't the one who posted this though. His Mustang was what he recorded a lot of his hits on, while his Jagstang was basically something he played every now and then live towards the end of his life.

    I think the jagstang wasnt ready until couple of weeks before his death.

    By the time he got it, he could hardly play anymore anyway. The only recording I've heard of it was a show in Rome that I had a cd of called "Roma". Pat Smear's guitar was turned way up to cover Kurt's. He got to a point where he could no longer sing and play at the same time.

    Wish I had 100 grand to spend on a guitar...must be nice.

    Eric Clapton auctioned one of his guitars for a million and gave it to charity...so I heard.

    Ouch....



    I'd rather take the 100,000 and ivested it in the stock market.... I keed I keed

    Actually, the money would probably last longer in the guitar.

    VERY mixed feelings about Mr. Cobain. Very similar pathology to Charlie Parker, if I have him right. As I believe I've said before, when Nirvana popped, I was in grad school living above a bar in a college town, so I heard them every day whether I wanted to or not. What I really REALLY disliked by the time, say, In Utero came out, was what I saw as the music biz fetishing his depression and drug addiction. Remember, this was the era of "heroin chic" in all the magazine ads. Fair or no, that's how I saw it at the time.

    As to the price tag. One of our local "collectibles" dealers put it to me this way. A collectible is worth precisely what someone who wants it puts in your hand. The metaphysical implications were not a part of his business model.

    if i had the money i wou have bought his guitar maybe he is my idol and i hate when people bash him because i see the pain he went through he was just a young kid and he was not looking for superstardom it was thrown on him and all this **** and pressure he never was in it for the money kurt loved his music and it was real to him it was not away to make money , i just hate ppl who see him as a junkie or sell out
