Fender Kurt Cobain Jaguar Guitar
Fender introduces the Kurt Cobain Jaguar guitar, modeled on the battered 1965 Jaguar that the Nirvana singer, guitarist and songwriter wielded during the early-’90s era.
Fender craftsmen have reproduced Cobain’s left-handed Jaguar, including its worn finish, dual humbucking pickups and electronics and controls (which were already in place when Kurt acquired the guitar in summer 1991).
Unique features include an alder body with Road Worn aged finish and hardware treatment, bound fretboard with pearloid dot markers, Stratocaster headstock shape with 1950s-style “spaghetti” logo under the finish, 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. The guitar will be available in right- and left-handed versions.
Accessories include a black textured vinyl hard-shell case and a Fender Kurt Cobain book featuring photos and commentary by Charles Peterson and an interview with Nirvana guitar tech Earnie Bailey.
