A guitar, which once belonged to late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain, is to be auctioned in Dallas, Texas next month.

Rolling Stone reports that the Mosrite Gospel Mark IV electric guitar will be auctioned at the 27th Annual Dallas Guitar Show and Music Fest.

It is the first time one of Cobain's instruments will be available for sale to the public since his death on 5 April 1994.

Cobain bought the guitar in San Francisco in 1990 and sold it in 1992.

It is a right-handed model that was modified so that a left-handed guitarist could play it.
