Sure he might be wincing in his grave, but it's still a serious axe

If you’re looking to emulate your favorite Seattle icon of grunge, then you might be in the market for Fender’s latest limited edition axe. The Kurt Cobain Jaguar is a perfect reconstruction of the 1965 guitar Cobain used during Nirvana’s Nevermind halcyon years. From the dual DiMarzio humbucker pickups and custom controls to the lefthand playing position and chipped exterior, the Kurt Cobain Jaguar is more than just a gimmick, it’s a serious Fender — to this day still one of the finest guitar makers on Earth. Other details include a pearloid dotted fretboard, Stratocaster headstock with 1950s-style “spaghetti” logo, sunburst finish, triple knurled “chrome-dome” knob configuration (volume-volume-tone) and three-position toggle switch. Accessories include a black textured vinyl hard-shell case and an exclusive Fender Kurt Cobain book with photos and commentary by Charles Peterson. Whether Cobain himself would be wincing in his grave at the idea of an imitation guitar may be up for debate (yet quite likely), the $1,850 guitar will certainly let you light up your best Bleach moments in full glory.
