    Looked like a small cigar-box electric guitar.

    Whatever it was - I thought Paul and Nirvana were great. Great energy and a great performance. I hope I can do that when I am 70!

    I was expecting that to blow chunks. Now I kinda wish we could hear more from them. Nice to see Paul get an edge back. I think it was too small to be a tenor guitar, but whatever it was, he used it to good effect.

    that performance caught me off guard. the only two bands that ever mattered to me in one stage. i felt happy and sad at the same time. i could careless if Paul was playing a broomstick.

    Here is a slightly better video of the performance: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PIWdotxMKC4

    Oh, found an even better quality video:

    Is that really a guitar? Somehow I can only make out four tuners at the head.

    I know this is a ukulele forum and I'm a bass player, but I really really like the Hagstrom that Smear is playing.

    I could only make out four tuners also. Is there such a thing as a resonator cigar box ukulele? Paul was using a slide on it.
