Fender's Kurt Cobain Jaguar® is a new-looking version of the battered and highly unusual 1965 Jaguar that Cobain wielded during the heady early-'90s era when Nirvana ruled rock and led a musically stunning and culturally subversive movement. Features include an alder body, bound fingerboard with pearloid dot markers, Stratocaster® headstock shape with 1950s-style "spaghetti" logo, DiMarzio® humbucking DP103 PAF 36th Anniversary neck pickup and DP100 Super Distortion bridge pickup, triple knurled "chrome-dome" knob configuration (volume, volume, tone), three-position toggle switch, black chrome Adjusto-Matic™ bridge and Gotoh® sealed tuners. Available in right- and left-handed versions. Accessories include a black textured vinyl hard-shell case and an exclusive Fender Kurt Cobain book with photos and commentary by Charles Peterson and an insightful interview with Nirvana guitar tech Earnie Bailey.

This has been my dream guitar since the first road worn version was released in 2011, but now it's done in NOS (new old stock) I couldn't think of a better indulgent way of spending a grand. As Kurt Cobain is my hero, it appeals very highly to me as I want to replicate the Nirvana sound- and boy does this thing sound like the real deal! But what is so brilliant is that not only does it nail the grunge sound, it nails almost every other sound. The versatility is outstanding. Every switch completely transforms the sound of the guitar. My only problem has been a slight bit of buzz but that can be easily fixed, aside from that this guitar is near enough perfect!

Finally, I hold this guitar in my hands. I've dreamed of it since 2011 when the first version (road worn) was put out. I dared to hope that a "clean" version come out one day and I was good to wait. I have a habit of damaging my guitars myself, and I am still very careful;)
For the 20th anniversary of the death of Kurt Cobain I could not dream better. This guitar has something really special in it, simply to keep his hands and magic. Sound Nirvana hands, the outfit is perfect after a good adjustment to his favorite technician. The guitar was strung with strings whose gauge was 10-52, just like Kurt did, and it is much nicer for big sounds. Maybe I'm not being very objective, but this guitar is a marvel, very well reproduced even if it is a Mexican. Well worth seeing!
sorry for my english i'm french lol here the french text :
Enfin, je détiens cette guitare entre mes mains, j'en reve depuis 2011 quand la première version (road worn) est sortie. J'ai osé espérer qu'une version "clean" sortirait un jour et j'ai bien fais d'attendre, j'ai pour habitude d'abimer moi meme mes guitares et encore je suis très précautionneux ;)
pour les 20 ans de la mort de kurt cobain je ne pouvais pas rever mieux. Cette guitare a quelque chose de vraiment particulier en elle, il suffit simplement de la tenir entre ses mains et la magie opère. Le son nirvana entre les mains, la tenue est impeccable après un bon réglage auprès de son technicien préféré. La guitare était montée avec des cordes dont le tirant était 10-52, exactement comme kurt le faisait et c'est bien plus agréable pour envoyer du gros son. Je ne suis peut etre pas très objectif mais cette guitare est une merveille, très bien reproduite meme si c'est une mexicaine elle vaut le détour !
