to Go Under the Hammer -
The bass guitar featured in Nirvana's
iconic 1991 music video for breakout grunge hit 'Smells Like
Teen Spirit' is set to be auctioned.
The instrument is a Zen-On bass guitar which bassist Krist

November the 29th at a special entertainment memorabilia auction
which also includes Indiana Jones's whip and the Holy Grail used in
the Last Crusade film. Other musical artefacts on offer include Bob
Dylan's high school yearbook complete with a personal message
written by himself.
The body of the guitar was salvaged by one of the extras in the
music video, which featured the band playing an impromptu gig in
front of a teenage audience in a dark moody space flanked by
Christie's estimates the guitar will sell for £15,000 to
