MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A guitar Prince played on stage in the late-1980s has sold at an auction for a whopping $700,000.

According to Julien’s Auctions, the Prince stage-used blue Cloud guitar was made for him by guitar luthier Andy Beech. The late musicians used it on stage in the very late-1980s and early-1990s.
