Cobain's Bass Guitar Sells For $43,750

A bass guitar once owned by a young KURT COBAIN sold at auction in New York on Tuesday (23Jun09) for over $40,000 (£26,600).
The tragic Nirvana star's Sears model bass guitar was used to record his early demos, according to the authenticity certificate.
It was among the highlights to go under the hammer at a Christie's pop and rock memorabilia sale.
A collector bought the guitar for $43,750 (£29,166).
Other top items included a 1967 Official Beatles Fan Club poster signed by all members of the Fab Four, a pair of late AC DC star Bon Scott's lyric-strewn notebooks and the handwritten lyrics of Bob Dylan's With God On Our Side, which fetched a staggering $25,000 (£16,600).
The auction also featured items of memorabilia relating to the Velvet Underground and Madonna.
