In 2011 Fender introduced a Jaguar based on the guitar Kurt played during the Nevermind era (we have one for sale now), a highly modified 1965 Jag that Kurt acquired in 1991 through the LA Recycler (or so the story goes). Fender's commemorative model seeks to accurately reproduce Kurt's '65 with a gaggle of interesting mods. First off, it has two DiMarzio humbucking pickups--a PAF neck pickup and a Super Distortion bridge. Its alder body sports a nitrocellulose finish reliced to approximate the beating that Kurt inflicted on his. (Factory relicing has a bad rep, but Fender did a pretty good job this time around.)
One of the good ones left us today (Oct 25, 2017). Fats Domino died of natural causes at his home in Harvey, Louisiana. This guy was the man back in the 50s. Five records Certified Gold. He sold over 65 million discs. The Fat Man was rockin New Orleans bars at age 14. By age 20, he had sold a million copies of his record, "The Fat Man,"--the first rock & roll record to achieve those numbers.
