This allowed some elbowroom for Gibson and Fender to rethink and retool their operations to fortify their position in the market.Two major issues defined the progress of electric guitars for most of the seventies.1) Companies outside North America vastly improved the quality of their guitar manufacturing and 2) Companies inside North America – namely Fender and Gibson – took their eye off the ball and did exactly the opposite.This Mustang first appeared in late 1988, and it directly replaced a Univox Hi-Flier that Kurt smashed on October 30, 1988, in Olympia.It appears to be the first left-handed guitar that Kurt ever owned, and one that he modified pretty extensively.
The Mustang copy allegedly was destroyed on July 9, 1989, but it may have experienced some form of reincarnation since a similar guitar is seen in photos of Nirvana on January 6, 1990.
