This Telecaster was wielded by Kurt during the Nevermind tour. It was actually a 3-tone sunburst guitar, but it was painted blue with latex house paint. Kurt scraped hearts and "Courtney" into the blue paint. This guitar was unmodified. It was smashed at the Hollywood Rock Festival in Rio De Janeiro on January 16th, 1993. The neck found its way into the hands of Recordmecca, after being picked up by Louie Mattieu of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, who were co-headlining the event.
