We’ve seen plenty of Kurt Cobain acoustic and electric guitars go up for auction, from his MTV Unplugged Martin D-18E to his In Utero Fender Mustang. But how about a stage-used amp cabinet and, um, strands of his actual hair?

Both are featured in Iconic Auctions’ Amazing Music Auction (Vol. 1), which includes personally owned, staged-used or signed musical memorabilia from Cobain and Nirvana, as well as the Beatles, Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, Nirvana, Led Zeppelin and more.
