This mustang has been routed for a humbucker with a Seymour Duncan JB in white installed in the bridge position. The switches have been replaced with matching white ones, and have been lowered so you do not hit your fingers on them when strumming. The pick-guard has been replaced with a red tortoiseshell pick-guard to match the shade of Kurt Cobain’s Mustang Pickguard, which has been cut to accommodate the pick up. The bridge pick up is original and has a white matching cover placed over it. Lastly, the bridge has been replaced with a Low Rider Tune-o-Matic style bridge for better tuning stability, the low rider offers more adjustability for string height as it can go lower than a regular Tune O Matic Bridge.. This is an exact recreation of the awesome modifications that Kurt Cobain of Nirvana had done to his touring Fender Mustangs which were also made in Japan. These guitars were released as Kurt Cobain signature Mustang’s which are very hard to come by and were only available in three finishes, Lake Placid Blue, Sonic Blue and Fiesta Red. The inspiration behind this guitar was to create a Kurt Cobain signature Mustang in the aged Sonic Blue finish that would match Kurt Cobain’s original and be closer in looks and styling than the later Kurt Cobain Signature guitars and is based on the Sonic Blue Mustang Kurt played the most which had the white pickups rather than the black bridge pick up which was only played for a handful of concerts.

The guitar is in great condition for its age, there is some light play wear with a few tiny dings and couple on the back of the neck as you would expect from such a playable guitar. There is a chip on the top side of the guitar and around the bottom strap button, but this all just gives the guitar rock ‘n’ roll character and plenty of mojo. The pickguard has an extra small hole next to the bridge pick up where the original single-coil pick-up position was before it was converted to fit a humbucker. The guitar also comes with a gig bag. The guitar plays and sounds just like the Kurt Cobain signature Mustangs, the Seymour Duncan JB pick up just roars, and the stock Fender bridge pick up has classic Mustang tones. The guitar is nice and light with an alder body, maple neck and ROSWOD fretboard. This Mustang has an approx neck width of 3.9cm / 1,53543″, the neck thickness at the first fret is 2cm / 0.787402″ and 0.826772″ at the 12th fret. It has a 7.25″ neck radius with 22 vintage style frets 0.2cm / 0.0787402″ wide and deep. The guitar weighs approx 3.095KG and has a comfortable ‘C’ shape neck contour. All the original parts that came with the guitar are included, such as the white Pearloid pickguard, the original bridge, and the aged white bridge pick up cover should you wish to reverse the many hours of work put into the guitar, but that’s unlikely with such fantastic Nirvana inspired upgrades. This is a truly awesome Japanese made custom Kurt Cobain Mustang in Sonic Blue from 1994.
