Here is for sale is a Fender Kurt Cobain Sonic Blue Mustang. This guitar was made by Fender Japan in 2012 and is part of a special run of Kurt Cobain Mustang guitars that were released for a limited time, in Sonic Blue, Lake Placid Blue and Fiesta Red. This is the most sought after Sonic Blue version of the guitar. This guitar has since been discontinued by Fender and is highly sought after by Nirvana fans and collectors alike. This is another beautifully made and authentic artist endorsed guitar by Fender. It has been set up exactly to Kurt’s specifications and made for him in 1993 for the In Utero tours. Kurt had four of these and interestingly Fender based it on the black Seymour Duncan JB version he had. He used this model on the Italian TV appearance in 1994 when playing Serve the Servants and Dumb which was his last TV appearance. The guitar has been well looked after and is a real under the bed find! One of the best mustangs Fender ever released. The guitar comes with a black gig bag. The guitar is in great condition with only a few dings and scratches and is in full working order. The most notable ding is on the underside of the guitar, a small ding on the lower body, and two tiny finish cracks around the neck pocket which is common with Fender guitars. The guitar has a clear and powerful sound, easy to play with the slim neck and has great looks with the Red tortoiseshell pick guard on the Sonic Blue.

Please note all guitars are sold as seen. We try our best to show the guitars condition in the photos but this is not always possible to every detail. Each guitar is set up to the shop standard playing style and as we all know; each player is different. If it is not set up to your liking this is not a cause for complaint, as is finding some kind of imperfection that we may or may not have mentioned. We sell used guitars not museum pieces and we do not accept returns unless they have been damaged in transit. If you are looking for a perfect guitar that you will worry about damaging and hang on the wall we advise you to buy new! So be rock n roll! lml

Inspired by Kurt Cobain’s arsenal of modded guitars, the new Fender Kurt Cobain Mustang electric guitar takes you back there, with 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 24″ Mustang scale length, C-shaped maple neck with urethane finish, 7.25″ – radius rosewood fingerboard with 22 vintage-style frets and vintage-style ivory dot inlays, four-ply Tortoiseshell pickguard, master volume and tone controls, vintage-style tuners, and chrome hardware.

Kurt Cobain liked Mustangs a lot. For one, he preferred offbeat guitars that didn’t cost much and the Mustang certainly fit those two criteria. Also, being somewhat physically diminutive himself, he liked to perform live with slightly more diminutive guitars, like Fender Mustangs and Jaguars, which better fit his hands and his reach.

See for yourself-go back and watch the famous 1991 video for “Smells Like Teen Spirit,” and there he is and there it is slung over his shoulder. Or think back to footage of 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 part of what Kurt Cobain was all about, musically.

When Kurt Cobain hit the stage in the early 90’s, it was often with a Mustang electric guitar – he was an enigmatic anti-hero figure with an esoteric anti-hero instrument. So it’s with great pride 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.
