Krist Novoselic's Gibson Ripper electric bass guitar, purchased in December 1993, one of three black Ripper basses that Novoselic played in Nirvana between 1990 and 1994. "That was his main bass after switching from the Ibanez Black Eagle basses when Nirvana made it big," McMurray says. "We'll also have on display this old 1960s Sears bass that Cobain used to record his early Fecal Matter and Organized Confusion demos in the mid 80s."
