Fender Kurt Cobain Jag-Stang
The reissue Fender Kurt Cobain Jag-Stang is a fitting tribute to this music legend. Few artists in music history can be credited with changing the industry overnight, never mind still influencing music culture three decades later! Kurt Cobain and his bandmates in Nirvana appeared on the scene in the early ‘90s. They were generational talents who combined raucous, heavy tones, punk-infused energy and melodic hooks. Their sound quickly attracted millions of fans and so 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 Jaguar® and Mustang® remain the most iconic. Of course, this is 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, while the 24” short-scale reduces string tension for easier playing. Also, 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. The Mustang slider switches also provide the flexibility to dial in four distinct settings, which provides variety of in or out-of-phase tones.
