Do you think fender will reissue a jag-stang for 2013, it being 20 years since in utero came out?

I hope so, but my wallet hopes not.

I doubt it, considering he rarely played it and it wasn't ever finished. to be honest im suprised they didn't wait til then to release the mustangs.

The fact that he seldom played the Jagstang live, won't matter when people out there will still buy the guitar and Fender will pocket the £££. Let the guitar playing masses decide for themselves whether they want to buy and play a Jagstang.

No but it will matter to fender marketing, remember they released the Jag for nevermind's 20th anniversary, and that was part of their marketing with it being the guitar he played the most at that time. The mustangs used all the in utero artwork in their ads and their marketing scheme was the whole "when he hit the stage it was usually with a mustang". To say they'd do that for the jag-stang, a guitar he said he didnt really like, and rarely played it at all, nevermind live, they're more likely to do a signature telecaster since he said that was his new favorite guitar.

I have to agree, the jag-stang needed tons of improvements, even Kurt seemed to think so, unfortunately he was never able to complete it. As for a telecaster, I'm not so sure about that, didn't it have a Gibson pickup in the neck? I guess they could put a Dimarzio PAF instead. It'd be an interesting guitar, but I don't think we really need more Kurt guitars.

His tele had a Gibson PAF in the neck and a JB in the bridge, but thats easy for them to do with a regular dimarzio PAF or even find a duncan equivalent. While the jagstang needed a bunch of tweaks for kurt's liking, the only thing i did was put a TOM in the bridge, lock it down, and change the bridge pickup and it feels great to me. As far as not needing any more Kurt guitars, same goes for clapton and pretty much every artist that they come out with 10 different models for. For me being a lefty though sometimes its cheaper. The jag only cost 1300 and that was with all the mods done, if i were to have an left handed jag imported from japan it would cost 1800 before having to route it and get the pickups and the pickguard so it was actually cheaper.

On the black pickup on the Sonic Blue one. The back up to the main In Utero tour Mustang had the black JB. He 2 Sonic Blue Mustangs on tour with HBs. The main one was the one with the white one in it, which is on display in Seattle. The one with the black HB is on display at the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame.

Yea we know that, but the one hes famous for using is the one with the white JB. All it comes down to is to save money in production and use one single one for all 3 guitars instead of using the right ones. For instance the competition mustang should have a hotrail, not a full sized JB, but its cheaper to cut all the bodies the same, cut all the pickguards the same and use the same pickups in them all.

I'm seriously debating on going after this for my next guitar or the '65 reissue. Most of my stuff doesn't really sound like Nirvana, though I am a huge fan, and with the '65 I can put a hotrails or a single sized humbucker in there....tough choice. :/

Even putting a hot rail or single coil sized humbucker won't really help that, i mean, all my guitars have different pickups in them and i'm able to get a very similar sound from them all thats neutral enough to sound like nirvana, but at the same time sound like a ton of other bands from other styles.

seems as tho it may be a better option to get a used 65 or 69 comp jap re-issue for a few hundered dollars cheaper and spend 20-50 bucks on a new pickup.....

  although i suppose the flatter radius may appeal to some.

Flatter radius of what? The 65 RI, 69 RI and cobain mustangs all have the 7.25" radius.

i thought someone just said the cobain mustang had a 9.5 radius? perhap i read it wrong. in that case.

  the cobain stang is retarded expensive for no apparent reason.

Where can I get a cheap mustang?

According to fender its a 7.25 radius....and its really not that much more than what i payed for my mustang, i have the 69 as well, but mind you i have it left handed and had to get it imported from japan.

they already changed the single coil cover.. it looks really bad

They didn't change the cover, thats happened on a few of the guitars when they updated the site...the cobain jaguar is one as well that shows two of the same pickups instead of the SD and PAF and it shows a chrome bridge instead of the black chrome.

hello, i got mine today and i have a question about the humbucker. is it normal that i can push it slightly down when i put light pressure on it given the fact that it is mounted directly to the body. it comes right up again, probably due to springs under the pickguard? or is it due to a manufacturing error that i can do this? sorry about the probably very stupid question but i really don't know much about guitar construction.

 

thank you in advance!

It's normal, even when its mounted to the body, there will be a foam pad under it and springs on the posts to keep its height. you'll still be able to push it down though.
