The ‘custom’ version of the Hi Flier is very sought after and has fantastic Japanese build quality. Everything works as it should, the electronics are fine and it is in amazing condition for its age. There is the odd bit of play wear here or there with the odd chip or small ding which gives it authentic vintage mojo and rock ‘n’ roll character. The guitar has the original white tuners that work well, and the pick guard has a great red tortoise shell finish. The control knobs are original. The bridge pick up has been upgraded with a Seymour Duncan JB in black, the same one as Kurt Cobain’s while the neck pick up remains stock. It has a rosewood fretboard, and is very comfortable to hold and has a really distinct sound that sounds great for many types of music from surf to rock and everything in between.This Univox Custom weighs approx 3.060KG nice and light. The approximate measurements of the guitar neck are as follows: The nut width is 40.72mm / 1.603″. The depth of the neck at the first fret is 21.31mm / 0.839″ and the 23.17mm / 0.912″ at the 12th fret. It has a C shape neck profile with a 7.27″ fretboard radius. The frets are 2.33mm / 0.0915″ wide and are 0.80mm / 0.0315″ deep.

The guitar has an awesome sound, you can see why Kurt chose one for Nirvana’s 1993 Saturday Night Live appearance where they played the TV debut for ‘Heart Shaped Box’ and ‘Rape Me’. This was also one of his at-home favourite guitars and used it for Nirvana secret guest appearance with Mudhoney at the Crocodile Cafe in Seattle in 1992 and a massive festival appearance in Argentina their last gig of 1992. This guitar model also features on the back cover of Nirvana’s greatest hits album from 2002. An absolute killer vintage guitar with a great heritage.
