£1,095.00Price

You are looking at Fender’s closest approximation to the guitar Kurt Cobain played in Nirvana's 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' video. Kurt's was Lake Placid Blue (and obviously a lefty) and this is Old Lake Placid blue, but to me it's still as near as Fender have built to that guitar. Even Kurt's LPB signature comp model by Fender for some reason didn't have a matching headstock. Anyway this is a scarce CIJ S-Serial from 2005. It was built for Fender in Japan, not Mexico. So you can expect perfect build quality. It’s a very nice example of this hard to find guitar. It has a 7.25 radius rosewood fingerboard complimented by a cream 3-ply perloid pickguard (still has clear protective film on). The neck is dead straight, truss rod fine with plenty of life left in the frets. No repairs or mods. It’s pre-owned so does have a few very light signs of being played, but nothing noteworthy and it’s in very clean condition. Complete with gig bag and black tipped tremolo arm. Built immaculately as you'd expect from Fender Japan. A beautiful vintage specification reissue Mustang with iconic connections to Nirvana. Don’t miss it, they don’t come up very often! We ship to the U.S, Canada, Australia, Europe and of course the UK.
