Phoebe Bridgers is auctioning off the guitar she smashed during her Saturday Night Live performance in February.

Money raised from the auction will benefit the LGBTQ+ organization GLAAD. Bids are open now through April 11 via the auction site Handbid.

Bridgers played the guitar during her performance of the song “I Know the End,” which ended with her destroying the instrument on stage by smashing it against an amp. The act inexplicably became a controversial topic on Twitter, culminating in David Crosby deeming Bridgers’ smashing performance “pathetic.” Bridgers then responded to the mustachioed folk rocker by calling him a “little b****.”

“I Know the End” appears on Bridgers’ 2020 album Punisher, which also includes the single “Kyoto.”
