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

The Fender Kurt Cobain Jaguar NOS electric guitar authentically reproduces the battered 1965 Jaguar that the legendary Nirvana frontman wielded during the band's meteoric rise. Built for Cobain's genre-defining grunge tones and playing style, this Jaguar melds vintage esthetics with modern appointments. Its alder body and maple neck provide resonant, well-balanced tone for recording and live playing. The DiMarzio humbucking pickups serve up thick distortion and singing leads. The modern C neck profile offers comfort for fast riffing, while the 9.5" radius rosewood fingerboard facilitates effortless bending and vibrato. The Jaguar's stylish chrome hardware, including the Adjusto-Matic bridge and vintage-style tuners, nods to Fender's roots. With the three-way toggle switch, you can go from rhythm to lead tones on the fly.

DiMarzio Humbuckers Deliver Cobain's Signature Sound

This Fender Jaguar comes loaded with DiMarzio humbucking pickups designed specifically to reproduce Kurt Cobain's tone. The DP103 PAF 36th Anniversary neck pickup provides warm, throaty rhythm tones and singing leads. When you kick in the DP100 Super Distortion bridge pickup, you'll get the fat distortion and sustain that Cobain used to craft Nevermind's huge guitar sounds. The pickups are sized like single coils so they look right at home on the Jaguar's chrome pickup covers.

Modern Playability With a Vintage Jaguar Vibe

While this Jaguar channels Cobain's original 1965 model, Fender added modern appointments for improved playability. The C-shaped maple neck has a fast-playing 9.5" radius rosewood fingerboard so you can easily rip through lead lines. The medium-jumbo frets make bends smooth and comfortable. And the Stratocaster-style headstock improves tuning stability compared to vintage Jaguars. Premium Gotoh tuners and an Adjusto-Matic bridge provide rock-solid intonation.

Versatile Controls Let You Craft Your Sound

Like Cobain, you can craft your tone with the Jaguar's flexible electronics. Use the three-way toggle switch to engage either the Lead circuit with its volume and tone controls or the Rhythm circuit with its unique tone and volume wheels. Run the pickups in parallel for glassy cleans or flip to series for humbucking rock crunch. Dial in the perfect balance of chime and distortion.

Includes Insights From Nirvana Guitar Techs

This signature model also comes with an exclusive Kurt Cobain book. It features photos and stories about the original Jaguar from Charles Peterson and Nirvana guitar tech Earnie Bailey. Get a first-hand look at Cobain's artistic process and how the Jaguar fit into his rig. The interviews provide invaluable insights that can help you get the most out of this iconic guitar.
