Fender introduces a Mustang inspired by a true grunge legend: Kurt Cobain.
When Kurt Cobain hit the stage, it was very often with a Mustang® guitar"an enigmatic anti-hero figure with an esoteric anti-hero instrument. It' with great pride then that Fender introduces the Kurt Cobain Mustang, which evokes the man, the band, the sound and the times, and gives an authentically crafted nod to one of the most unlikely guitars to ever find itself at the center of a musical maelstrom.
See for yourself"go back and watch the famous 1991 video for śSmells Like Teen Spirit,ť and there he is with it is slung over his shoulder. Or think back to when you saw them on the ™93-™94 In Utero tour, when he seldom went onstage with anything but a Mustang. Quite often and especially later on, Mustangs were a big influence on Kurt Cobain's distinctive sound.
Inspired by his arsenal of modded guitars, the new Fender Kurt Cobain Mustang boasts highly distinctive features including an angled single-coil Mustang neck pickup and ferocious Seymour Duncan® JB humbucking bridge pickup mounted directly to the body, dual on-off/phase in-out switches for each pickup, a polyester-finished alder body and an Adjusto-Matic„˘ bridge with dynamic vibrato tailpiece.
Other features include the classic 24ť Mustang scale length, C-shaped maple neck with urethane finish, 7.25ť radius rosewood fingerboard with 22 vintage-style frets and vintage-style ivory dot inlays, four-ply pickguard, master volume and tone controls, vintage-style tuners, and chrome hardware. Available in right- and left-handed models.

I am selling one of my favorite Fender guitars. My Kurt Cobain Mustang. Hopefully someone will buy it who plays it more than I did. I had it mostly as a show piece. I have thrown in the Roadrunner hardcase that protects and fits the guitar aesthetically as well. The guitar is priced to sell. It is nearly flawless on the exterior. Very few spots on the pickguard that you can see if you really look closely. The fretboard and the body are flawless. The guitar was also recently re-strung with Ernie Ball strings. As far as shipping goes, I will pay the shipping if you choose standard. Unless you're in a hurry and want 2nd-Day then you'll have to pay it. It wouldn't make much sense to ship outside of the US, because of the price. However, if you're really interested msg me...
I am pretty firm on the price. I've already lowered it as far as I'm willing to go... I feel that the price is more than fair.
