Fender Kurt Cobain Jag-Stang Sonic Blue

Brand:

Instrument Categories: , ,

The Fender Kurt Cobain Jag-Stang is merging of two guitars used extensively by the artist. It’s a professional grade, 24 inch scale solidbody featuring an Alder body, Maple neck and Indian Rosewood fingerboard. For hardware, the Mustang tuner, bridge and vibrato bridge setup was chose, but the pickups include a humbucker in the bridge position and Mustang wiring.

Seen here in Sonic Blue, the Fender Kurt Cobain Jag-Stang is also available in Fiesta Red.

This is a very cool guitar to play. The short scale and relatively narrow fingerboard brings many ‘larger’ chords into easy range, an idea that drove the development of the Gibson Byrdland.

The original Fender gig bag is included.

Here is the builder on the Fender Kurt Kobain Jag-Stang:

“Few artists in music history can be credited with changing the industry nearly overnight and continuing to influence music culture three decades after the height of their popularity. Kurt Cobain and his bandmates in Nirvana appeared on the scene in the early ‘90s as generational talents who combined raucous, heavy tones, punk-infused energy and melodic hooks to create a sound that quickly attracted millions of fans and established grunge and alternative rock as a genre with legitimate mainstream appeal.

Although Kurt was seen playing a variety of Fender guitars over the years, his Fender Jaguar® and Mustang® remain the most iconic due to their use on the “Nevermind” tour and “Smells Like Teen Spirit” music video. Kurt designed the Jag-Stang® to combine his favorite elements of both instruments and brought it to life with help from the Fender Custom Shop in 1993.

Commemorating the 30th anniversary of Nirvana’s seminal record “Nevermind,” this Jag-Stang comes equipped with the same features that made it Kurt’s ideal instrument. The alder body delivers a punchy tone perfect for big power chords, the 24” short-scale reduces string tension for easier playing, and the 7.25” radius rosewood fingerboard with maple neck has a comfortable feel that won’t fatigue your hands when chording. The vintage-style single-coil and custom humbucking pickups are perfect for recreating Kurt’s classic tones, while the Mustang slider switches provide the flexibility to dial in four distinct settings for a variety of in or out-of-phase tones.”
