The 1959 Martin D-18 guitar Kurt Cobain played during Nirvana's 1993 MTV Unplugged set shattered the previous record amount paid for an iconic guitar when it brought a top bid of $6 million Saturday (6/19). Just 7 bidders were vying for the guitar during the final round of bids according to Julien's Auctions. The previous high bid for an individual guitar was set when David Gilmour's Black Stratocaster sold for $3.95 million.
