      Fender Kurt Cobain Signature Mustang Electric Guitar (H78833)

Fender introduces a Mustang inspired by a true grunge legend: Kurt Cobain.

When Kurt Cobain hit the stage, it was very often with a Mustang® guitar—an enigmatic anti-hero figure with an esoteric anti-hero instrument. It’s with great pride then 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.

See for yourself—go back and watch the famous 1991 video for “Smells Like Teen Spirit,” and there he is with it is slung over his shoulder. Or think back to when you saw them on 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 influence on Kurt Cobain's distinctive sound.

Inspired by his arsenal of modded guitars, the new Fender Kurt Cobain Mustang boasts 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 pickguard, master volume and tone controls, vintage-style tuners, and chrome hardware. Available in right- and left-handed models.

  • Alder body
    24" Scale C-shape maple neck

    Seymour Duncan JB bridge humbucker mounted directly to the body
    Mustang single-coil neck pickup

  • Love It!!!

    As reviewed by Ian Moore on 2/6/2012

    Sounds nice and gritty, really nails the grunge sound. It's made in Japan, which every retailer seems to go great lengths to avoid mentioning. You're only getting the guitar for your money, no gig bag, no manual. I do love the guitar though.

  • Best mustang you can buy.

    As reviewed by Matt C. on 9/20/2012

    Put images of Nirvana fan-boys foaming at the mouth aside, and consider this the best playing and sounding Mustang Fender has ever made. I have had several others in the past and this guitar is far superior in build quality and features. The 'floating' bridge has always been the Achilles heal of the mustang, the replacement of the 'adjust-o-matic' bridge keeps the guitar in perfect tune. The addition of the in-wood humbucker give you a great hi-gain tone and sustain. Lastly this guitar is made out of Alder wood instead of the standard basswood found in previous Japanese Mustangs. Lastly the pickup selectors have been dropped down into the guitar to keep the player from hitting them when strumming. Very convenient to anyone who has ever owned a mustang and knows the frustration of accidentally switching off the guitar. Fender Japan has been making these on their own for years, but only recently has Fender USA been marketing them under the Cobain name. Japanese Mustangs are great, and this is just another example of a great guitar with some much appreciated upgrades for the playing musician. If you're a fan-boy looking to emulate Nirvana, get your self a strat and smash it! Only downside is no hard shell case. Lame.

  • The Cobain guitar I've been waiting for...

    As reviewed by christapher Larsen on 4/12/2012

    This guitar is worth every penny. I purchased a Jagstang only to be disappointed. The guitar did not have the tone I was looking for, about the only thing it was good for was the feedback. Which it tended to feedback when you really wouldn't want it to. Enter the mustang. I have always wanted to own a Mustang, I played around on a few but they never screamed "buy me". I opened this baby up at the Guitar center and could tell it was a beast without it even being plugged in. This guitar sounds just like the guitar I've heard on every Nirvana record. It is so precise it's uncanny. I would definitely recommend it for any true Nirvana fan.
