Stays TRUE EXACTLY to a crazy modded Jaguar that Kurt bought used. Fender made sure the pickups were correct, the Strat headstock on a Jaguar, the incorrect head decal... Everything is as Kurt's guitar was.Most of the factory relics I've come across are crap. The paint stress is in the right places and looks like marks from use--not from some guy in a woodshop with a file. Most of the Cobain Jags you see now are not reliced.
But why get one of those? Might as well get any new Jag. This one captures Kurt's punk ethic.
Weight is 8 pounds, 7 ounces. Yes, it's expensive, but this is a guitar that will only go up in value, and it's one to keep for a lifetime. It symbolizes the grunge era and will stand as a lasting testament to a great songwriter and band. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. Details on my setups and packing, plus all specs, at bottom of listing.Full setup, cleaning, and new strings. My setup on guitars includes new strings (9s or 10s depending on what the nut is cut for), overall polish, cleaning any gunk off fingerboard, oiling neck, and polishing frets when necessary. I spray out any pots that are noisy. I turn the truss rod (if necessary) and set string height at low-to-medium action depending on string buzz present. You may need to get it set to your particular needs by your personal luthier. I don't claim to be a trained luthier, but I'm able to set guitars/basses for a reasonable out-of-box experience and have had very few complaints. If you're looking for the perfect setup on a used guitar, please expect to take it to a trained luthier who is familiar with your individual playing style and preferences. Ps: basses get the same setup minus the new strings. I use quality boxes, thick bubble wrap, and peanuts to pack guitars. I have been doing this 10 years and know how to pack well--with or without a hard case. I wrote a detailed story with photos on how I pack a guitar, which you can find on my StillKickinMusic site blog.
How to Pack a Guitar you will find it. One of Fender's most unique signature models. Fenders Kurt Cobain Jaguar is painstakingly crafted using the unique and well-worn 1965 Jaguar that Kurt used in the early-90s era to catapult Nirvana to the forefront of the explosive and invigorating grunge movement in rock music.
Fenders luthiers have replicated Cobains battle-worn Jaguar down to the last meticulous detail, including the well-worn finish, dual humbuckers and modified controls and electronics (which had already been modified when Kurt obtained the guitar in the summer of 1991).
