FENDER KURT COBAIN JAGUAR ROAD WORN + OHSC + Papers Nirvana Relic 57469
You're looking at a 2011 Fender Kurt Cobain signature Road Worn Jaguar in killer condition. It comes in the original Fender hard case, factory paperwork, tremolo bar, and case key. Neck and frets and all electronics in great condition. The guitar is in excellent cosmetic and playing condition. Just been set up and ready to rock!
This guitar stays TRUE EXACTLY to a crazy modded Jaguar that Kurt bought used. Fender made sure the pickups were correct, the Strat headstock on a Jaguar, the incorrect head decal...everything is as Kurt's guitar was.
Most of the factory relics I've come across are crap. This one is not. The paint stress is in the right places and looks like marks from use--not from some guy in a woodshop with a file. Most of the Cobain Jags you see now are not reliced. But why get one of those? Might as well get any new Jag. This one captures Kurt's punk ethic. Weight is 8 pounds, 2 ounces. I've sold these before and they go fast! Yes, it's expensive, but this is a guitar that will only go up in value, and it's one to keep for a lifetime. It symbolizes the grunge era and will stand as a lasting testament to a great songwriter and band. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. (Details on my setups and packing, plus all specs, at bottom of listing.) Thanks for looking!
Return to the dark intensity and huge guitar sounds of the grunge rock movement with the Kurt Cobain Jaguar, a new-looking version of the battered and highly unusual 1965 Jaguar that Cobain wielded during the heady early-'90s era when Nirvana ruled rock and led a musically stunning and culturally subversive movement. It authentically evokes the modified left-handed Jaguar that Cobain found secondhand and came to prize shortly after the recording of massive 1991 album Nevermind, complete with DiMarzio® humbucking pickups, special switching, exclusive in-case extras and more. Available in right- and left-handed versions.

What You Get
-- Full setup, cleaning, and new strings.
-- FREE USA shipping.
-- 30-day return policy.
-- Ship within 1 business day--pro packing.
My setup on guitars includes new strings (9s or 10s depending on what the nut is cut for), overall polish, cleaning any gunk off fingerboard, oiling neck, and polishing frets when necessary. I spray out any pots that are noisy. I turn the truss rod (if necessary) and set string height at low-to-medium action depending on string buzz present. Since setup is highly subjective you may need to get it set to your particular needs by your personal luthier. I don't claim to be a trained luthier, but I'm able to set guitars/basses for a reasonable out-of-box experience and have had very few complaints. If you're looking for the perfect setup on a used guitar, please expect to take it to a trained luthier who is familiar with your individual playing style and preferences. ps: basses get the same setup minus the new strings. Thanks!
I use quality boxes, thick bubble wrap, and peanuts to pack guitars. I have a very high rate of successful guitar and bass shipping (meaning few damaged instruments). I have been doing this 10 years and know how to pack well--with or without a hard case. I wrote a detailed story with photos on how I pack a guitar, which you can find on my StillKickinMusic site blog. If you Google "THERE IN ONE PIECE...How to Pack a Guitar" you will find it. Thanks.
