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 tortoise shell pick-guard 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 Tune-o-matic style bridge for better tuning stability. 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 another finish, the Three Tone Sunburst, which was another favourite of Kurt Cobain’s. Combined with the White pick ups and switches with the red tortoise shell pick guard is reminiscent of Kurt legendary Fender Jaguar but in the Mustang form. It’s highly likely Kurt would have had more Mustang’s from Fender Japan had the band continued and enjoyed other finishes such as the Three Tone Sunburst with his modifications applied.

The guitar is in great condition, there is some light play wear as you would expect from such a playable guitar as this, but no major scratches or dings. The pick guard does have a few marks around the screw holes, and an extra small hole next to the bridge pick up, some extra screw holes that are not visible to accommodate the new pick guard but this all just gives the guitar rock ‘n’ roll character and plenty of mojo. 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 a basswood body, maple neck and ROSWOD fretboard. The guitar weighs approx 2.875KG and has a comfortable ‘C’ shape neck profile. All the original parts that came with the guitar are included, such as the white pearloid pick guard, black switch tips, the original bridge, and the black bridge pick up cover should you wish to reverse the many hours of work put into the guitar, but thats unlikely with such fantastic Cobain inspired upgrades. The guitar also comes with the original tremolo arm and Fender paperwork. This is a truly awesome Japanese made custom Kurt Cobain Mustang in Three Tone Sunburst.
