To honor the 30th anniversary of Nirvana’s «Nevermind» record, Fender has created a one-of-a-kind reproduction of Kurt Cobain’s Jag-Stang guitar. The guitar is based on late Kurt Cobain’s design, and it incorporates features from his Fender Jaguar and Mustang guitars. Kurt developed it in conjunction with the company in 1993. Kurt Cobain’s drawings and webpage sketches, which he discovered in his personal diaries, served as inspiration for Jag-fantasy Stang’s Fender guitar. Cobain visited the Jag-Stang often during his In Utero tour, which ended in April 1994.
«I’ve always enjoyed various elements of specific guitars since I started playing, but I could never find the ideal balance of everything I was looking for,» Cobain told Fender Frontline in 1994. — The Jag-Stang is the closest to perfection.
The Cobain Jag-Stang has an alder body, a 7.25-inch rosewood neck, single coil pickups, and unique humbuckers in vintage design, and comes in Fiesta Red and Sonic Blue in both left and right-handed versions.
«We were intrigued by how complex the design was when we looked at the designs Kurt Cobain made for his perfect guitar,» says Justin Norvell, executive vice president of Fender Products. — Because we appreciate original design, the new Jag Stang retains all of its original features. We didn’t try anything new since we wanted to stick to Kurt’s vision. We knew we wanted to make Kurt Cobain’s vision a reality because of our long-standing partnership with the Kurt Cobain Estate. It was an honor for me to contribute to the realization of his ideas and the revitalization of this concept.
The Kurt Cobain Jag-Stang costs £1,249.
