That looks like an exact replica of the ACTUAL Kurt Cobain guitar! I checked and all the specs are exactly perfect!

But it says it is made of mahogany above with rosewood then near the lower pictures basswood with a all maple neck.... no headstock pics?

Aliexpress guitars often omit or obscure headstock pictures because they have illegal logos (or at least they can, if they buyer asks for them). If you don't want one, it's probably best to confirm a blank headstock with the vendor .... or you might get a surprise.

Does anyone have experience with these guys?

Obviously it's £200 so I'm not expecting Fender quality, but does anyone know if they're any good at all?

I don't wan't to sound like an asshole saying this but.. As far as It looks a cute funny little guitar, seriously.. it's nothing like the actual thing.
1) the general body shape is off;
2) the hb is straight and not angled;
3) the switches are 2-way instead of 3;
4) the pickguard bottoms the vibrato plate with a straight line instead of flowing with the silouette;
5) furthermore, the pickguard has a mismatch on the inner cutaway of the lower horn. And it's perloid vs 1 ply white;
6) the control plate is both off as a shape and it looks like it's just painted on the back;
7) it does have contours whilst the original does not. Also the body radius is too small.

That being said: Each one of us should have one ;D

Hmmmmmmm. Strange. Kurt and I were personal friends and I've held/played said guitar, sooooooooo... ::)
Trust me. It's exact. I would know - i sold the builders their plans. Fender didn't want to pay what I was asking.
My commission also agrees with your sentiment, that everyone should have one.

Yep! Also the double dots at the 12th are spaced way too far apart... kinda like Shirley Manson's eyes, as well as all of the inaccuracies that you mentioned.

My unforgivable and unjustifiable bad, now that I put trusty glasses on I see I'm not worthy :D
Parry, bud.. just between you and me.. You're a true hero: you've been let down by Fender' stinginess but instead of getting all depressed, you managed to get paid by the Chinese rivals provinding the exact specs. That's a phenomenal revenge, sir ;D

Being the Chinese prone to accuracy yet the jag-stang being an offset... I'd rather see them going FULL DOHERTY with said dots:

And that's what makes it look better than the original.. 2 and 4 specifically.. ;D
