The olive green cardigan that Kurt Cobain wore during Nirvana’s MTV Unplugged performance and one of the late rocker’s custom guitars are to go under the hammer.

Julien’s Auctions said that the sweater and a custom Fender guitar built in 1993 that Cobain used during the band’s In Utero tour will be offered during a two-day auction of rock memorabilia in New York this month.

The turquoise-bodied left-handed guitar was on display for several years at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Cobain, one of the biggest stars of the grunge rock music scene of the early 1990s, was 27 when he killed himself on April 5, 1994.
