"Apparently Cobain developed a taste for Fender guitars just prior to recording Nevermind. "I like guitars in the Fender style because they have skinny necks," said Cobain in a late 1991 interview. "I've resorted to Japanese-made Fender Stratocasters because they're the most available left-handed guitars." During this period, he also acquired a left-handed '65 Jaguar that had a DiMarzio Super Distortion humbucker in the bridge position and a DiMarzio PAF in the neck position in place of the guitar's stock single-coil pickups. These modifications were made before Cobain purchased the guitar."

the 36th anniversary PAF didn't exist in the 90s, the Dimarzio PAF in question is from the 70s and 80s like the srock neck pickup on hamer sunburst and standard models of the era and isn't contructed the same as the current model you referenced. Nothing similar other than the wire gaugesand general output level, different baseplates, magnets, etc
