White Fender Stratocaster

White Fender Stratocaster

One of two white Fender Stratocasters mentioned at http://www.kurtsequipment.com/ It is currently on display at the EMP's dedicated Nirvana exhibit. Long time friend of the band Rob took the photo above and hooked us up with this info:

"The story on the white Fender Stratocaster is that it shows up in Kurt's arsenal late 1991. It is first destroyed in Ghent, Belgium 11/23/91. It is repaired (new neck, pickguard, etc.) Then it sees it's final destruction 9/11/92 at the Seattle Center Coliseum show."




EMP - Nirvana: Taking Punk to the Masses exhibit

The EMP (Experience Music Project) in Seattle opened up it's Nirvana exhibit last month. This story is being covered by loads of media.

This story on MTV.com is one of my favorites so far because it has video clips featuring the curator of the exhibit, Jacob McMurray, giving a guided tour of some of his favorite pieces in the exhibit.

Here is the EMP's Flickr feed featuring photos from a special member only preview.

Guitars on display:
Smashed Fender Mustang (entry coming soon!)
White Fender Stratocaster (need more info, if you have any please send!)

Sorry for the lack of post in the last few months. I designed a dedicated web site for this guide (with the intention of getting rid of the "blog" format) but it's taking longer than anticipated to bring it live. I'm contemplating leaving it on Blogger but the templates are so damn ugly!

Thanks to all of you who come here regularly. You will not be disappointed once this gets cleaned up. Also if you attend the exhibit, EMP is allowing non-flash photography! Feel free to post links to your photos in the comments section.
