Here for sale is a Fender Kurt Cobain Mustang signature guitar in Lake Placid Blue. This Mustang It has been set up exactly to Kurt’s specifications and made for him in 1993 for the In Utero tours. Interestingly this Lake Placid Blue is the rarer of the three finishes and is based on Kurt’s favourite guitar his Vintage Lake Placid Blue Mustang mixed with the specification of the In Utero tour mustangs, with the added advantage of the far superior Seymour Duncan JB installed over the stock bridge pickup and the standard finished headstock. The guitar is a wonderful player and has a powerful sound for its size.

This Fender Mustang guitar is in near mint condition with minimal play wear. There is a tiny paint chip on the inside of the neck socket but other than that the guitar is in great condition. These are hands down the best Fender Mustang’s out there. They have Seymour Duncan JB’s in the bridge for a great fat, raw rock sound, and can be controlled by the sliding tone pick up switches that have been sunken down at Kurt’s request and is a great improvement on the originals which used to poke out and were easily hit when strumming. This guitar has been upgraded with a custom made neck pick up which gives the guitar in the neck position greater tone and clarity as the pole pieces are exposed. The original pick up is included if you did want to turn it back to original. The pick up that is installed is modelled after a Fender Texas Special close in sound to what Kurt Cobain had installed in his Jag Stang. The neck is great to hold nice and slim but not too narrow, just right. It’s just an awesome guitar to play and own and you can see why they were Kurt’s stage favourites that he almost exclusively played them from ’93 onwards. Kurt’s favourite guitar ever was his ’69 Lake Placid Blue Fender Mustang and this is a stunning tribute to it.

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.
