Well, yeah. But I always wanted a Fender Jaguar, but I never found a left-handed one (I'm left-handed). And now I finally can have one.

Too bad Fender is commiserating the death of an average musician with an above average guitar.

Kurt gobang doesn't deserve his name on a guitar.

It's a nice guitar IMO. I wonder why making an official Kurt signature guitar took this long.

i like how alucard and andalus are like "waaaah thats unfair becuz i am bettar at giutar then kurt cobain he dont desurve signitchur modle!!!1". being a particularly good guitarist is not what gets you a signature guitar. you might not think he deserves a signature model but apparently fender do and it's up to them really, isn't it? if they think it will sell they'll do it.

having said that, it's interesting to see fender actually remembered to make a left handed version of a left handed guitarist's signature model i think they should make it lefty only, although maybe i'd think differently if i actually wanted to buy one.

as much as you'd like to think that, i was actually trying to get you to start thinking about things with a certain level of maturity and rationality, for your own benefit.

so please do get over my light hearted "waaah" comment and read this:

my point was that being anything more than average in terms of how well you can play a guitar is not part of the criteria that determines whether you get a signature model or not - it's all about whether the manufacturers think such a guitar will sell or not. "deserving" has got nothing to do with it. jonas brothers melody maker, anyone?

The only bad thing about this guitar is that as soon as the wood is finally broken in and it hits its sweet spot, it develops this whiny sad sound and then the headstock explodes.

Oh wow a 20 something is telling me about maturity.

You can go on all day and "educate" me as to why people get sigs, Yes I know it's all about making money off the artists name (Dimebag Darryl anyone?) that still doesn't detract from my opinion that Kurt gobang doesn't deserve a sig.

God forbid someone has an opinion about anything on these forums.

You're approaching it like having a signature guitar is somehow a holy sacred thing, or something. That you have to "deserve" it, which clearly isn't the case. Companies make signature guitars only to sell more products with the name.

post

He was pointing about that having a signature is not about being deserving of it, but about whether your name will get money, and that if you looked past deservedness, you would see the bigger picture, benefiting yourself. You were insulting Cobain (who has been dead for some time now and thus had no say in this signature model) because he was an average guitarist who is getting a signature.

As for pointing out he doesn't deserve it, it is a wasted point, as it is irrelevant to whether an artist gets a signature; yet you still make the point despite claiming you know it is all about money.

You then decided that pointing out that a signature is not about worthiness but monetary value was "whining", and proceeded to respond somewhat immaturely rather than conducting yourself with good manners and respect for other users.

Oh, and if a user on any forum tells you that you are not behaving maturely, particularly if they regular on the forum, you are probably not. Listen to blompcube: he knows of what he speaks.

i think what he is trying to get at, was that kurt cobain wasn't really anything special, (which i don't really think he was imo) and that if guitarists really aren't groundbreaking, they shouldn't have guitars named after them.


i wholeheartedly agree with that statement. but some fool will buy the guitar because it says kurt which is why the fake fender markets that shit.

They mention it's Road Worn, which means MIM. They must be getting into the Road Worn stuff a lot more. Nate Mendel from the Foo Fighters is getting a Road Worn signature P Bass in January.
I never did like the feel of the Road Worn stuff. The "wear" feels so fake. The sound however, is brilliant.

although i'm not much of a fan i think Kurt is probably one of the most deserving of a sig model. not because of his skills but because of his impact on future guitar players. just like Ace Frehley in the 70s Kurt showed that you didn't need virtuoso skills to be an ultra successful guitar player. this sells far more guitars than any guitar hero. why because the average guy can look at him and say "hey if he can do it so can i". i'd guess that there is a shit ton f guys that picked up a guitar in the 90s bcause of Kurt and now that tey are older and have some cash would love to have a guitar like the guy that got them started. the actual guitar looks pretty nice even if it's not my cup of tea.

This thread is retarded. fender can make a signature guitar for whoever they like. Kurt played a Jaguar and he modified his guitars to his liking, so if Fender wants to offer a signature model in that configuration, that's up to them. Anyone who disagrees can go start their own damn guitar company and decide who gets a signature. Hell, you could even decide who gets a guitar period. You could only sell to those whom you deem worthy.

And of course signature guitars are about making money. People are willing to buy a guitar because their favorite guitarist plays it, and they are willing to pay extra for the endorsement. That's called supply and demand. Fender wouldn't be a big company if they didn't know how to turn a profit.

This, this is all it really is, they just want another reason to up price a slightly unpopular guitar(jags aren't very popular from what I've seen, compared to the Strats and Teles).

and all i'm saying is, you can go on all day throwing your toys out of the pram about how kurt cobain doesn't deserve a signature (you and the other guy), doesn't change the fact it's got nothing to do with whether they 'deserve' one or not.

and that doesn't mean you're not allowed to still think he doesn't deserve one - god forbid someone should see things from a different perspective on these forums

A long time ago Fender made the Jagstang. They even put "designed by Kurt Cobain" on the back of the headstock.

I still kick myself for not grabbing one for $400 when I had a chance a few years ago, but I'll settle for my MIJ Mustang for now. Don't worry, I'm not going to give it a red pick guard or a bucker--that would be fanboyish. And I'll leave the bridge alone, too.

Sure, Kurt wasn't a great player, and history tells us he pretty much sucked at life. Who knows what might have been if he hadn't tangled with drugs--he played amazingly well live for a guy so hopped up he could hardly walk sometimes.

I'm not going to judge his song writing skills here, but I will say he sure did turn popular music on its head more than most guitar heroes ever get to. I could see how it would be tough to appreciate that without having lived through 70s, 80s, and 90s radio, though. But that's just my opinon and I'm sure plenty of other folks that experienced it too may disagree.

That's a lot of money for any guitar in my book, but it might be fun to mod a regular Jazzmaster with similar electronics.

maybe they'll supply you with some tape so you can do it yourself, just like the joe strummer signature comes with replica stickers so you can stick them to your guitar if you want to

Quote by Andalus
Kurt F*ckflake doesn't deserve this.


And you as well..


Too many young ass kids think they can just trash Nirvana and claim their incompetency as musicians.. Nirvana was never about shredding brutal metal licks on guitar.. Curt Cobain has influenced the majority of 90's grunge bands, and he will continue to influence bands for years to come.

So shut your mouths and get famous so you can get your own signature guitars.
Guitar isn't a contest. Grow the F*ck up.
