A guitar played by Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain in a rare acoustic concert has sold for a record US $6 million.

Cobain played the retro acoustic-electric 1959 Martin D-18E during a legendary MTV Unplugged performance in 1993, just five months before he died.

Bidding in Los Angeles opened at $1m and was won by Rode Microphones founder Peter Freedman.

Nirvana's acoustic performance for the MTV Unplugged series on 18 November 1993 is now considered one of history's greatest live performances.
