1969 Fender Competition Mustang
Famously used on the Smells Like Teen Spirit video. This guitar was also (alongside a Strat and a Jaguar) used for the recording of Nevermind. Kurt's Competition Mustang is currently on display at Seattle's Experience Music Project. After Kurt's death Courtney gave the guitar to a close friend. That friend has lent the guitar indefinitely to Seattle's EMP.
"I recently worked on the real one and its present owner allowed me to photograph it in detail. Courtney gave it to him a month after Kurt's death, and it is exactly as I remember it, every nick, ding, and solder joint." - Earnie Bailey
If anyone is in Seattle please take a ton of photos of this guitar @ EMP and send it to us so we can post 'em!
Hard Rock Cafe sells a tiny version of this Mustang.
A thousand thank you's to Rob and Earnie for the close up photographs above!
