'Designed by Kurt Cobain' not on my Jag-Stang

Recommended Posts

Hi this is my first post on this forum.

I have just recently purchased a Jag-Stang, it is a 1994-1995 model. I have also just realized that it doesn't say Designed by Kurt Cobain on the back of the head stock. If anybody could  help me and tell me if this is normal or not it would be appreciated.

Hi XaG.  You mean like is in the below photo, correct?

Those are just stickers and they were sometimes removed by owners over the years. Some of the guitars may have never had the stickers. It's hard to know for sure. The presence of those stickers is no real indication of the year the guitar was made.

Hi thanks for the reply. 

I didn’t know the ‘Designed by Kurt Cobain’ was a sticker, thanks for clarifying that. I was just worried that the Jag-Stang that I bought wasn’t authentic, but now I know. Thanks again for your help it’s appreciated.

IIRC, the stickers were only present on the original 1995-2003 run, the 2004-2006 run (which actually ran till 2007 apparently) did not have the Designed by Kurt Cobain stickers.

The 1995-1996 models like mine and the photo above also had the 50th Anniversary sticker.  My modded 1995 still has both.....plus my own sticker ;)

      For those who want a custom build. For those who can't find a Jagstang. Why customize an original? Build one. If you lack luthier skills, I can help you.

      Does anyone know the original part number for the original hard case that came with a Jagstang in 95? I bought one from Guitar Center that is Fender model 540006004000000 and it says it fits a Mustang/jagstang/cyclone. It is too short and does not have the place for putting accessories in.

      Okay, this may sound a little weird. But I can just easily lift the knobs off the guitar. It was already this way when I got it and never took action to fix it.
      I have no idea how it got this way. It's like they were never actually tightened. My question is, what's the best way to get them tight/locked in place?
      So I can turn the knobs without worrying that they'll come off.
