Fender Artist Series Kurt Cobain Jaguar NOS Guitar, 3 Color Sunburst


Player's Perspective

Kurt Cobain: two words (or names...) that totally changed the musical landscape in the 1990's. He had a few weapons of choice and high up on the list was his beloved '65 Fender Jaguar. With this axe, Kurt boldly blazed forth into new sonic territory thus fulfilling the general purpose of this model - to make new music happen. What was once only for surf rock, then punks, became an axe capable of unexpected rockingness. This beast plays smooth from top to bottom and has a super fast neck on it. The neck pickup delivers all the meat you could ever need ... until you decide you need more. That's where the super distortion bridge pickup has you covered. It's so inspiring to play you could literally start a band around this guitar. Get out there and rock.

Item Details

This Kurt Cobain Jaguar is finished in 3 color sunburst.

Fender's Kurt Cobain Jaguar® is a new-looking version of the battered and highly unusual 1965 Jaguar that Cobain wielded during the heady early-'90s era when Nirvana ruled rock and led a musically stunning and culturally subversive movement. Features include an alder body, bound fingerboard with pearloid dot markers, Stratocaster® headstock shape with 1950s-style "spaghetti" logo, DiMarzio® humbucking DP103 PAF 36th Anniversary neck pickup and DP100 Super Distortion bridge pickup, triple knurled "chrome-dome" knob configuration (volume, volume, tone), three-position toggle switch, black chrome Adjusto-Matic™ bridge and Gotoh® sealed tuners. Available in right- and left-handed versions. Accessories include a black textured vinyl hard-shell case and an exclusive Fender Kurt Cobain book with photos and commentary by Charles Peterson and an insightful interview with Nirvana guitar tech Earnie Bailey.
