See the thing is I like the look of a Jag-Stang, regardless of Kurt Cobain's involvement. Thats why I think itd look good as a bass and in surf green. Saying it would lose appeal due to different colors is something similar to saying people would hate a Strat because the colors are different than what Leo Fender originally painted them. Though there probably are people like that in the world.
Oh and for the record (is there even one?) I have a friend who bought a Mustang bass because Cobain played a Mustang guitar.
