Fender to Sell Collectible Replicas of Kurt Cobain's Guitar

From Rolling Stone: "In honor of seminal album Nevermind's 20th anniversary, Fender is releasing a custom-designed collector's edition Jaguar guitar modeled after the special 1965 edition unit that Kurt Cobain used throughout Nirvana's early '90s heyday.

Priced at $1,849.99, the Kurt Cobain Jaguar aims to replicate the legendary singer-songwriter's signature road-worn axe in minute detail, down to its custom controls, dog-eared aesthetic and visible wear and tear. Sporting an aged finish and dual DiMarzio DP100 Super Distortion and PAF DP-103 36th anniversary humbucking pickups, plus bound rosewood fretboard with pearloid position inlays, it hopes to replicate the actual instrument's look and feel."
