    Description

    Prince Personally Played and Approved Special Prototype Schecter Diamond Series Cloud Guitar Serial #0033481. A cobalt blue solid body electric guitar in the famous "Cloud" shape and style made famous by Prince, serial number 0033481. All metal hardware is gold-colored, including Sperzel tuners, one volume knob, one tone knob, one three-way switch, nut and truss rod cover, and has two EMG pickups. The twenty-two fret fingerboard is decorated on the front with silver markers in the form of Prince's "spade" symbol. With minor scratches, dings and imperfections throughout the body, light pay-wear to the neck, and a small paint-chip at the tip of the headstock, in Very Good condition. Stunning in appearance. Includes padded gig-bag.

    This guitar was crafted as a special prototype model, and was sent to Prince during licensing agreement negotiations related to producing Cloud guitars for the public. Prince then personally played, inspected and approved it, afterward returning the guitar to Schecter with his blessing. This amazing piece was further immortalized when, on the June, 2016 BET Awards Sheila E. held the guitar aloft at the end of her Prince tribute performance, symbolically offering the instrument to late music icon. Accompanying the guitar is an equipment loan agreement signed by both the consignor and Sheila E.

    Controversial, innovative, and most of all an exceedingly skilled musician, Prince (born Prince Rogers Nelson, June 7, 1958 - April 21, 2016) excelled in seamlessly blending Pop, Rock, Soul, Funk, Blues, and Electronic music into an inventive, yet instantly-recognizable style that was as influential as it was marketable. With over 100 million records sold worldwide, mountains of awards and accolades, and a catalog of releases more prolific than many artists with careers twice as long, Prince is an artist that defied genre, stereotypes, record labels, and complacency. This guitar, like everything about the enigmatic virtuoso, is uniquely Prince.
