Kurt Cobains Mustang Electric Guitar Added To Fenders Signature Range
The Fender Kurt Cobain Mustang Signature Electric Guitar has been announced at this year's NAMM 2012. When Kurt Cobain came on stage, it was usually with a Mustang electric guitar in his hand, the world renowned anti-hero had a taste for esoteric instruments. With this in mind Fender have announced the introduction of the Kurt Cobain Mustang to add to it's ever expanding selection of signature guitars by other world renowned and respected electric guitarists. The look of this guitar 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 centre of a musical maelstrom. From the infamous "Smells Like Teen Spirit" video to Nirvana 93-94 In Utero tour, the Mustang was always slung over his shoulder, playing a big part in Kurt's unique sound. Inspired by his arsenal of modded guitars, the new Fender Kurt Cobain Mustang has all the distinct features that made this guitar highly distinctive. Featuring 24" Mustang scale length, 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. Also available in a choice of Fiesta red, Sonic blue and Dark placid blue with a stripe finishes and in a choice of right or left handed models.
