Fender Kurt Cobain Jag-Stang - Rosewood, Sonic Blue
FREE GUITAR INSPECTION!Your guitar will arrive ready to play.
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.
- Alder body
- Maple neck with 7.25" radius rosewood fingerboard
- 24" scale length
- Vintage-style single-coil and custom humbucking pickups
- On-off / in-phase/out-of-phase slider switches for each pickup
Alder is a resonant wood known for balanced and lively tone that delivers a fat, punchy sound.
Maple neck with 7.25" radius rosewood fingerboard
These are traditional Fender neck woods that deliver clarity and warmth with a vintage-style radius that is extra comfortable for chording.
24" scale length
Shorter than Fender's standard 25.5" scale length, the decreased string tension and shorter distance between frets makes playing easier.
Vintage-style single-coil pickup and custom humbucking bridge pickup
Classic single-coil tone and fat-sounding custom 'tilted' humbucking pickups allow players to recreate the clean and dirty tones used by Kurt on Nirvana records.
On/off / in-phase/out-of-phase slider switches
With a switch for each pickup, players are able to dial in up to four distinct combinations to find the perfect sound whether recording or performing live.
Mustang floating bridge with dynamic tailpiece
This is an easy-to-use classic bridge and tailpiece set that sounds great and stays in tune.
