[photogallerylink id=90958 align=left]Is it another piggy-back on the 20th anniversary of Nevermind, or a true appreciation of Kurt Cobain, that Fender is manufacturing a limited-edition Cobain Jaguar? We’ll probably never know, but you easily could, for a hefty $1,849.
The unique, battered, sunburst Jaguar is an exact replica of the Fender the Nirvana front man used to record Nevermind in 1991 — from its extra volume control to the wears and tears of leading the grunge movement (including the extra-fade on the back from Cobain’s belt buckle). And of course, it comes in his (among many other great guitarists) left-handed guitar as well as right-handed.
[photogallerylink id=75821 align=left]Nirvana weren’t exactly tech-heads — they really didn’t care about the quality of their equipment. The Jaguar was certainly a cheap, low-quality guitar — perfect for a post-concert smash — and the amber-toned guitar has defined Cobain and a generation that followed him.
After Nevermind went on to make Nirvana superstars, Fender tried to make/perfect a new guitar for Cobain. It was Jaguar-Mustang (another cheap guitar), the JagStang, hybrid. He sent it back constantly, time-after-time, and rarely played it. This 1965 Jaguar was truly his music baby.
