Nice photo of Nirvana's guitars

Presumably this Charles Peterson photograph was taken backstage at the Reading Festival or at one of the two Rio shows (Brazil).

From left to right; 1965 Fender Jaguar, Ferrington Mustang, white Stratocaster, Telecaster, Fender Competition Mustang, sunburst Stratocaster. (rear - Krist's bass)

    Where's the Jaguar he used so often? It's in this pic but you dont have a profile... I think Eric from Hole has it.

    That Jaguar is the holy grail for this guide. I've chased a few leads but have come up empty. The main theory is that Eric from Hole owns it because he was seen using it on the Doll Parts video. However I have not been able to confirm ownership.

    Where is the white Strat Cobain used at the MTV awards on Lithium? I think its the one in this pic but you dont have a listing for it. Hmmmm....

    wheres the black on black strat with the vandalism sticker and two white pickups?

    This is “Live At Reading”. Because as you can see, thats the sunburst strat Kurt gave away at the end of the show, it has a SD Hot Rail in the bridge.

    O, and the black “Vandalism" Strat was smashed, the white “Lithium” strat is right there, and the Jag belongs to Eric
