There are a lot of dubious ways that the name of Kurt Cobain has been used to sell a product. Video games and action figures immediately come to mind, but this new Fender guitar is okay with me and Kurt would probably be alright with it too. The price tag? That might have been outside the Grunge god’s price range but you can’t have everything right?
In celebration of his talents and lasting influence, Fender has meticulously reincarnated his unique lefty axe in the form of the new Kurt Cobain Jaguar ($1,850).
…. 3-color sunburst alder body with a “road worn” finish, for a vintage look that belies its true age. The same DiMarzio humbucking DP103 PAF 36th Anniversary neck pickup and DP100 Super Distortion bridge pickup are also onboard, as are other distinctive electronics and controls like kurnled “chrome-dome” volume and tone knobs, a three-position toggle switch, and black chrome Adjusto-Matic bridge and Gotoh sealed tuners.
