If you’re a Nirvana fan, coming up later this month, you can bid on the bass guitar that Kurt Cobain picked up and smashed at the end of the iconic Smells Like Teen Spirit video.

Christie’s of London has the Japanese Zen-On guitar — or what’s left of it — going on the block on November 29th, where it is expected to sell for somewhere between $25,000 and $40,000.

Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic bought the 1960s instrument at a pawn shop, where he was looking for something cheap that he knew could be smashed in the video.

The pieces of the bass were allegedly picked up and taken home by a teenager who appeared as an extra in the video.
