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 œSmells Like Teen Spirit, 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.

Comments about Fender Kurt Cobain Signature Mustang Electric Guitar:
I have played guitar now for 15 years and played all sorts of guitars from cheap yamaha guitars all the way up to Gibson Les Paul Standards. I have med. size hands and this mustang fits my hands and arm length perfectly. The distortion on this Mustang bits and sounds amazing. The clean of the bridge pick (SDJB) has a little bit more bite to it then my tele but it is great once dialed in for your sound. The Tune-O-Matic bridge on this Mustang is for sure a lot better than those of regular Mustangs. It is a lot more stable. I play punk/rock/grunge/funk and you can get any kind of sound out of this guitar. I do not give an item a 10 because I think there is room for improvement with anything, but I would give this guitar a 9.75 out of 10. The only cons are it doesn't come with even a gig bag and the clean on the bridge is a little raw but does dial in well. Awesome looks, feel, and sound. In fact I just played a show with this guitar and it held tuning great and sounded great the whole way through.
