Fender Introduces Kurt Cobain Style Jaguar
Fender Guitars has re-created the uniquely battle-scarred 1965 Jaguar that Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain played from 1991 on. Are we the only ones that don’t want to pay $1,900 for a signature guitar from a guy known for playing cheap throwaway guitars?
Kurt Cobain was known to play cheap Japanese Fenders, most of which he would break on-stage or (in the early days) sell. He did actually have a legitimate guitar he picked up in the summer of 1991 — a 1965 Fender Jaguar that looked like it had been rode hard and put away wet.
Now Fender has re-created Cobain’s axe down to the smallest of details — like the unique electronics and the damaged finish. You too can own a beat up looking new guitar for only $1,849 before taxes. The guitar will come with a few bonuses — a 32 page booklet with photos and such and a guitar case. Since Cobain was a lefty, the guitar will be available in both left and right-handed versions for the same price (usually lefties shell out an extra hundred bucks).
