This is a guitar neck from a Mustang guitar that Kurt used on February 14th, 1990, at Kennel Club, San Francisco, CA. The guitar was destroyed at the end of the gig, leaving the neck cleanly broken from the body. Based on the appearance, this was one of a number of homemade guitars that Kurt and the band put together using various parts. This guitar, in particular, seemed to have a Mustang-style body finished in surf green, and a brand-new neck with the headstock painted black. It also had a custom-made pickguard, with a photo of Jesus on the front. Kurt Cobain even said, “We even built a bunch of Mustangs at one time. We bought some necks, and took pieces of wood and cut out the bodies and put necks on – and they were completely out of tune. But we did a pretty good job. Those were all destroyed in one tour. That was about like four years ago, probably. At least.” During a 1993 interview in Seattle. After Kurt destroyed the guitar, a member of the audience got the body, but the crew told him they were going to reuse it, so gave him the neck instead. The neck features a “KC” initial signature Cobain carved into the guitar after creating it. Kurt Cobain guitars are incredibly collectible and rare, and finding one with this level of provenance is next to impossible. A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for any fan. Comes with a letter of provenance and a Gotta Have Rock & Roll® Certificate of Authenticity.
