Considering it's 3 times what the Black Strat sold for, that's an understatement. I think it's more a statement on Nirvana and Kurt. I always thought he was a terrible guitar player but the man wrote music even I wanted to listen to. I don't even know if Page's Burst brings that much, whenever it comes up.
And Zappa only wanted a mil for Hendrix's burnt Strat.
