OVERVIEW

A pristine recreation of Kurt's guitar with DiMarzio humbuckers and versatile electronics.

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. Accessories include a black textured vinyl hardshell 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.

    Comments about Fender Kurt Cobain Jaguar NOS Electric Guitar:

    I have played guitar since age 12 or 13. My first guitar I purchased and took lessons at the store was a Fender Squier I believe I can't remember exactly. After that I had to upgrade from a squire.I couldn't stand a squire and never will again. After that I purchased a nice Fender strat. I can remember I kept searching stores looking for a guitar like Kurt Cobain played in Nirvana. And after this guitar purchase I have found the guitar I've been wanting since way back!!! All I can say is WOW!! I am astonished at how great a guitar this is. I recommend this guitar to anyone. The guitar is not just for Nirvana fan's. And you can go spend way over thousands of dollar_s for a vintage strat. To me this guitar looks better and the quality is great and sounds different than a Strat but of course it's a KC Jag. I would love to have a particular vintage strat but not for the vintage prices no way on this earth. The guitar is great with distortion. I recommend to buy this guitar. I don't believe you'll be disappointed. Very cool, very great overall. I give a star rating of 10/10 stars!!!

    Comments about Fender Kurt Cobain Jaguar NOS Electric Guitar:

    Beautiful guitar,well made,nice neck. But not that fender sound. I found the guitar when amplified sound muddy and toneless. Neck pickup not loud enough for rthym and height from factory as low as pick guard when adjusted height to improve sound strings hit pickup had to return to factory settings.no matter what amp l played through it sounds horrible. I returned it to mf.just didn't work for me and my ear. Buy any other fender guitar just not this one unless you like muddy bass low tones and through different pedals it gets worse.
