As seen throughout in the now legendary music video for "Smells Like Teen Spirit", Kurt Cobain brandishes his left-handed Fender Mustang Dark Lake Placid Blue with Stripe. In an interview with [GuitarWorld](http://www.guitarworld.com/kurt-cobain-talks-gear-and-more-his-final-guitar-world-interview-1992), when asked why he favors low-end models of guitars, Cobain replied: "I don’t favor them — I can afford them. [laughs] 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 favorite. I’ve only owned two of them." He added, "They’re cheap and totally inefficient, and they sound like crap and are very small. They also don’t stay in tune, and when you want to raise the string action on the fretboard, you have to loosen all the strings and completely remove the bridge. You have to turn these little screws with your fingers and hope that you’ve estimated it right. If you screw up, you have to repeat the process over and over until you get it right. Whoever invented that guitar was a dork." Here is a [still image](http://www.guitarthai.com/picpost/gtpicpost/A2393901.jpg) of Cobain holding the Fender Mustang.
