Fender has re-released Kurt Cobain's signature Jag-Stang electric guitar.

Reissued to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Nirvana's legendary Nevermind album, the Jag-Stang dates back to 1993, when Cobain began sketching out his ideal Fender in his journals. Remaining faithful to Cobain's vision, the Jag-Stang is essentially a Mustang/Jaguar hybrid that's available in left- and right-hand versions.

The guitar features an alder body and a maple, slim C-shaped neck boasting a 24” short scale length rosewood fingerboard with a 7.25” radius and white pearloid dot inlays.

Sonically, the guitar features a custom humbucker in the bridge and custom single-coil in the neck, controlled by individual volume and tone knobs and a pair of Mustang slider switches that can dial in four unique settings for increased tonal variety.

Elsewhere, the Jag-Stang boasts a six-saddle, vintage-style Mustang bridge with tremolo, vintage-style tuners, and a four-ply aged white pearloid pickguard.

The Fender Kurt Cobain Jag-Stang is available now – in Fiesta Red and Sonic Blue finishes and with a deluxe gig bag included – for $1,249.
