Fender Product Overview
Return to the dark intensity and huge guitar sounds of the grunge rock movement with the Kurt Cobain Jaguar, 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. It authentically evokes the modified left-handed Jaguar that Cobain found secondhand and came to prize shortly after the recording of massive 1991 album Nevermind, complete with DiMarzio humbucking pickups, special switching, exclusive in-case extras and more. Available in right- and left-handed versions.

This guitar is the absolute best!! It looks fantastic and sounds great. You won’t regret buying one of these... Nirvana fan or not!
Appears perfect can’t wait to give it to my son for Christmas.
Great range of tones, pleasantly surprised by the output of the bridge as well as the combination with the PAF. Very classic Jaguar looks and more
