Fender is celebrating the 30th anniversary of Nirvana's Nevermind by reviving their Kurt Cobain signature guitar. The Jag-Stang electric, which they worked with him to build in 1993, combining aspects of Jaguars and Mustangs, his go-to guitars, was last available in 2006. It's available to pre-order now in fiesta red and sonic blue, for an MSRP of $1,249.99, and scheduled to start shipping in October. The description reads:

Commemorating the 30th anniversary of Nirvana’s seminal record “Nevermind,” this Jag-Stang comes equipped with the same features that made it Kurt’s ideal instrument. The alder body delivers a punchy tone perfect for big power chords, the 24” short-scale reduces string tension for easier playing, and the 7.25” radius rosewood fingerboard with maple neck has a comfortable feel that won’t fatigue your hands when chording. The vintage-style single-coil and custom humbucking pickups are perfect for recreating Kurt’s classic tones, while the Mustang slider switches provide the flexibility to dial in four distinct settings for a variety of in or out-of-phase tones.

Fender also announced a new J. Mascis Telecaster, a recreation of the 1958 top-loader Tele he's been known to use in the studio, with a Dazzling Blue Sparkle finish. That one also features "mirrored chrome pickguard, custom J Mascis Telecaster pickups, top-loader bridge and Road Worn® maple neck and hardware," and will be available starting in August, with an MSRP of $1,349.
