With all the hoopla surrounding the 30th-anniversary release of Nirvana’s Nevermind, Fender has decided to re-issue its Kurt Cobain signature guitar. The Jag-Stang will be back in November.
Wait. The Fender “Jag-Stang?” Yep. It’s Kurt’s own design which is a hybrid of a Fender Jaguar and a Fender Mustang.
Justin Norvell, EVP of Fender Products, says: “When we took a look at the sketches Kurt Cobain had drawn up for his dream guitar, we were impressed by how intricate his design was. We honoured the original model – all the specs on the new Jag Stang are as they were. Nothing new was done to it, we really wanted to keep it aligned with Kurt’s vision. Through our long-standing relationship with the Kurt Cobain Estate, we always knew we wanted to bring his vision to life. It’s been an immense honour to help bring his idea to fruition and revive this model.”
Expect to pay £1,249 or about CAD$2,100.
