USED Fender Jag-Stang - Sonic Blue - Kurt Cobain Signature Model - Offset Electric Guitar
Fender Jag-Stang – Sonic Blue
“Crafted in Japan”
Used Offset Electric Guitar
Kurt Cobain Designed Signature Model
The Jag-Stang was Kurt Cobain’s idea. Arguably the greatest anti-hero in the history of electric guitar, Kurt Cobain always liked Fender Jaguar and Mustang guitars, and it was his idea to fuse them into a single instrument, the Jag-Stang. He conveyed his ideas for the instrument to the Fender Custom Shop, which produced a couple prototype models in 1993, one of which the Nirvana singer/guitarist played on a few brief occasions late in his career. Fender carried on with plans for the instrument after Cobain’s death in April 1994, and Japanese-made production-model Jag-Stangs were introduced in early 1996.
This particular Jag-Stang is “Crafted in Japan” from the second run in the early 2000’s. It has been played and cosmetically shows dings and dents from use, as well as some very faint beginnings of fret wear. Nearly all the examples I’ve seen have a White Pearloid pickguard, but this one looks great with the Tortoise. An EMG humbucker has been installed in the bridge position wired to the Volume and Tone controls. The neck pickup and slider switches are disconnected. A Fender gig bag is included. Like all our used / vintage gear this has been tested for functionality and priced to move. Sold as-is. What you see is what you get (except for the aforementioned gig bag which IS INCLUDED but not pictured).
Great neck – super comfy to play and loads of fun. It just rips!
