It has a rip roaring sound, that captures Kurt Cobain's live sound that catapulted them to worldwide success in 1991. It is a shame Fender did not make this a stock model back in the'60's and thanks to Kurt finding this guitar in the LA Recycler , Fender put it into production 2011 for a limited time. The functionality of the guitar is a massive improvement on the regular Jaguar with a Gibson style toggle switch to select the pick ups and an Gibson style bridge that is much more stable, plus the two volume and one tone knob add great versatility and looks so cool on the guitar with the triple knobs. It is a real beast of guitar with bags of tonal options to boot.

You can see why it is a truly magic guitar this thing just screams, possibly the best version of the Jaguar ever made and it came to light in recent times that it was originally custom build in 1965 for Cliff Richards then touring guitarist. Unbeknownst to him it would end up with a future rock legend Kurt Cobain as if it was meant to be by kismet.
