Kurt Cobain Mustang Humbucker- TB-4 or SH-4?

Recommended Posts



does anyone know, if the bridge humbucker on the signature Mustang 2012 was a TB-4 or SH-4?


I understand a SH-4 should go with the TOM, or in this case, Fender's Adjusto-matic


whilst TB-4 goes with Fender bridges 


As a side note, when a TB-4 is used, I gotta modify/sand the pickguard even more, because the TB-4 size is a little larger compared to the SH-4, is that right? 



HOWEVER, Kurt used Sh-4 + TOM BUT  his strings were known to be out of alignment??

It was a SH-4 in both, Kurt Cobain's, and the KC Signature. I'm pretty sure the strings are aligned, even on Kurt's. Kurt had a Gotoh bridge, which are modeled after Gibsons. Fender's Adjusto-matic is also modeled after a Gibson ABR-1.
