The Fender Mustang is a solid body electric guitar produced by the Fender Musical Instruments Corporation. It was introduced in 1964 as the basis of a major redesign of Fender’s student models, the Musicmaster and Duo-Sonic. It was produced until 1982 and reissued in 1990.
For the past 12 years, the guitar has been on display at Seattle’s MoPoP Museum of Pop Culture.
It was a left handed version that was painted blue with racing stripes. “I’m left-handed, and it’s not very easy to find reasonably priced, high-quality left-handed guitars. But out of all the guitars in the whole world, the Fender Mustang is my favourite,” said Cobain in a 1992 interview with Guitar World.
