Summary: Kurt Cobain often slung a Mustang when Nirvana hit the stage—an enigmatic anti-hero with an offbeat and inexpensive anti-hero instrument. The Kurt Cobain Mustang evokes the man, the band, the sound, and the times, giving an authentically crafted nod to one of the most unlikely guitars to ever find itself at the center of a musical maelstrom. Inspired by his arsenal of modded guitars, the Kurt Cobain Mustang guitar takes you back to the early-'90s era when Nirvana ruled rock and led a musically stunning and culturally subversive movement, with distinctive features and spirited vibe.
