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. Fender introduces the Kurt Cobain Mustang – with 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.
