Fender Kurt Cobain Original 1980s Fender Japan ‘Vandalism’ Stratocaster

Fender Kurt Cobain Original 1980s Fender Japan ‘Vandalism’ Stratocaster


Here is a beautiful looking Fender Japan E-Serial Stratocaster, one of the cleanest examples of this model we have had through the doors at GSG. Forget all the replicas made from Squiers and Mexican guitars. The general consensus is that Kurt Cobain's Vandalism Strat was a black 1980's Japanese Fender FujiGen-built Stratocaster. Here is that guitar. This is right-handed not left, but it is basically the exact model that Kurt played. This is the one to mod with the 'Vandalism' sticker, tape, pickups & 3-ply guard if you want real authenticity. But this is a rare chance to get the correct model. It's an MIJ E-serial built between 1984-'87. Plays beautifully with a good acton. The neck is dead straight, truss rod fine, still plenty of life left in the frets. Very resonant with a dark and dense slab rosewood fingerboard (7.25 radius). No breaks or repairs. Weight 3.6kg. No notable dings or paint nicks, which is very rare for this guitar. One of the under caps is missing and there is no tremolo arm. Complete with Fender branded softcase. Don't miss this one as these original 1980's Fender Japan Vandalism Strats don't come up often.
