Kurt Cobain's 1960s MOSRITE GOSPEL guitar will be sold on 17 April (04) as part of the ICONS OF THE 20TH CENTURY music auction.

It marks the first time one of the late Nirvana frontman's instruments has been sold.

The right-handed guitar is still strung in reverse for left-handed play and includes Cobain's original case with `Nirvana' and `F**k ELVIS' painted on it.

Other items to go under the hammer at the auction include one of ELTON JOHN's pianos, two of Elvis Presley's jumpsuits and a

12-string guitar owned by George Harrison.
