    Comments about Fender Kurt Cobain Jaguar NOS Electric Guitar:

    Absolutely stunning guitar with a high quality feel and terrific sound. We actually bought this as a birthday gift for our nine year old. He started with a fender squire mini, and advanced beyond that and loved the feel and sound of this axe. It's a bit heavy, especially for a kid, but it's so great looking it's hard to put down.

    Solid purchase

    Comments about Fender Kurt Cobain Jaguar NOS Electric Guitar:

    This guitar caught my attention. First MIM Fender purchase and I have to say it is a solid and well made guitar. First Jaguar also, and it is heavier than I expected but no problem. The pickups sound wonderful and combined with an alder body provide a little different tone than say a Les Paul. The neck is comfortable although a little shorter than most electrics but plays fast. The vintage tremelo on mine is either too tight or too loose. Still playing around with that. Didn't get it for the tremelo anyway. Had some grunge on the fret board that needed to be wiped off but to be expected. Ordered mine, so it came from the factory. Wow the hard shell case is better than the American Standard cases. Really nice. The 3 tone sunburst finish is stunning. Played through a JVM 210h with a 1960b cab and a Super Reverb and those pickups are handle distortion well. Even played through a Fat Metal pedal. Fun stuff. Kinda reminds me of an Explorer. Maybe not the best for a first electric but it makes a very nice addition to any collection and if its your first guitar then...well done. 4 stars because 4.5 was not available with 5 stars going to high dollar custom stuff.

      Comments about Fender Kurt Cobain Jaguar NOS Electric Guitar:

      I got this guitar 2 days ago.I was not really sure what to expect. I hate to admit it, but I guess I'm a guitar snob.I would only buy American made Gibson and Fenders.I have 2 Les Pauls Standard and a Traditional. I have several Fenders everything from the American Standard to the Selects to a Custom Shop Stratocaster. The Fender Kurt Cobain Jaguar is an AWESOME GUITAR!!! The feel ,playability and sound is mind blowing!! If your thinking about getting this guitar do yourself a favor and get it!! You will be glad you did!!

          This guitar is amazing. One reason I like it is because it is the Kurt Cobain guitar and that makes it even better. It plays and sounds good.

            Comments about Fender Kurt Cobain Jaguar NOS Electric Guitar:

            This was my first big guitar purchase. Nirvana is my favorite band so when I saw they were making a Kurt Cobain jaguar I had to have one. This is one of my main guitars. The bridge pickup is great for a punchy punk tone and when both are on its great for thick rhythms. I play through a bassman and fuzz pedals and it sounds amazing. I love the shortscale. This is the 4th short scale I've owned. The guitar is a little heavy but I love it.

              Why would anyone pay more than $599 for non-nitro??

              Cool guitar when I played it at the store but don't understand why anyone would buy it for this price without a laquer finish. Fender needs to offer nitro on everything American Standard and up.
