What Will Become of Kurt Cobain's MTV "Unplugged" Guitar?

When Nirvana appeared on MTV's "Unplugged" in November 1993, no one expected that the guitar Kurt Cobain strummed on stage would become such a hot commodity. After the musician passed less than six months later, though, the instrument became a highly-coveted piece of memorabilia. Despite being embroiled in legal battles between Cobain's widow Courtney Love, daughter Frances Bean Cobain and ex-son-in-law Isaiah Silva, the guitar went up for auction this past weekend and sold for record-breaking highs.
