Prince’s Guitar Sell for Over Half a Million Dollars
That's the highest amount paid for one of the late rock star's guitars
NATIONAL — A guitar that Prince used in the 1980s and 90s has sold for $700,000.
That’s the highest amount paid for one of the late rock star’s guitars.
Julien’s Live auction house anticipated the teal blue Cloud guitar would be sold for $60,000 to $80,000.
Prince donated it in 1994 to benefit Los Angeles earthquake relief.
The guitar was auctioned Saturday and the buyer was not identified.
It has a letter of authenticity from Cloud guitar maker Andy Beech, who made 31 guitars for Prince.
The musician died in April 2016 from an accidental drug overdose at his Paisley Park complex.
