Fender just added a new guitar to its catalog with the addition of the “Kurt Cobain Jaguar” model. The guitar was modeled on the 1965 Jaguar Kurt Cobain played with Nirvana during the early ’90s.
According to Fender’s press statement, their craftsmen were able to reproduce “Cobain’s battle-hardened left-handed Jaguar down to the last unusual detail, including its worn finish, dual humbucking pickups and unique electronics and controls (which were already in place when Kurt acquired the guitar in summer 1991).”
The Kurt Cobain Jaguar has an alder body with “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.”
