Fender Kurt Cobain Original 1980s Fender Japan ‘Vandalism’ Stratocaster. MIJ E

Fender Kurt Cobain Original 1980s Fender Japan ‘Vandalism’ Stratocaster. MIJ E


Here is a very cool looking Fender Japan E-Serial Stratocaster. 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. It also has some lovely light naturally earned vintage ageing. It's a rare chance to own 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 3.3kg. Has plenty of the dings and scuffs you'd expect for such an old Strat, all naturally earned and a good start on the reliving process if you are going for the Vandalism mod. Complete with correct black-tipped tremolo arm and super cool vintage Japanese Fender leatherette gig bag. Don't miss this one as these original 1980's Fender Japan Vandalism Strats don't come up often.
