Although Kurt Cobain is more readily identified with Fender’s Jaguar and Mustang and the posthumous Jagstang signature model, he used Stratocasters throughout an all-too-brief career.
Nirvana's Nevermind has Strats all over it, including one audibly being reduced to splinters in the 'secret' track, Endless, Nameless.
Cobain favoured the left-handed Japanese Stratocasters of the period due to their availability and vintage-style small frets. More often than not they would be rebuilt on guitar tech Earnie Bailey’s workbench as a result of Nirvana’s customary set-closing gear demolition.
