Seems a fair price, and I'm glad it won't be locked in some vault.

ridiculous price for an average guitarist's.

I wouldn't pay that if he rose from the dead and played the thing.

it deserves to be the most expensive guitar of all time... what happened on November 18, 1993 was one of the best / most iconic moments in music history... i was literally a baby when Nirvana were Nirvana but back in the 90,s my brother was growing up listening to them. he bought this Unplugged and later he gave it to me...... still have it.

The world's most expensive painting to sell at auction is Leonardo da Vinci's Salvator Mundi, which sold for $450.3 million on November 15, 2017 at Christie's. ...

A very small but beautiful painting make this guitar look cheap.

No doubt bought by the ‘Six Million Dollar Fan’ ... I’ll get my coat.

As rock memorabilia goes, I can see this one not appreciating as much as others once Nirvana fade into history. I think their main appeal will be with this generation and will not be as timeless as say the Beatles, Stones, Led Zeppelin etc. For a guitar famous for a single performance, this is a stupid price.

If I could have any guitar, I'd have that Japanese copy Telecaster Prince played or Nile Rodger's hitmaker Strat. As a simple investment that's iconic and likely to be worth loads, my guess would be Jimmy Page's goldtop Les Paul.
