The 1990 Gretsch White Falcon guitar featured in the video for Foo Fighters‘ “Monkey Wrench” video is going up for auction.

While frontman Dave Grohl plays the guitar in the video, the instrument originally belonged to guitarist Pat Smear, who used it on the 1997 Foos album The Colour and the Shape.

The guitar will be sold by the U.K. auction house Gardiner Houlgate on September 7. It’s expected to fetch between 15,000 and 30,000 British pounds, which is between about $17,700 and $35,400.

The person with the winning bid will also receive a number of photographs, including one of Drew Barrymore holding the guitar.

The “Monkey Wrench” video currently has over 40 million views on YouTube. It’s notably the first Foos video to feature late drummer Taylor Hawkins.
