'Prince's Personally-Owned and Played Yellow Cloud Electric Guitar Will Be Offered at Auction With an Opening Bid of $30,000'

How much would you pay for Prince’s legendary yellow guitar? After Prince’s shocking death, the iconic instrument will be up for action in California, and opening bids start at $30,000. Watch the man himself plays the guitar in the video. 

According to ‘Heritage Auctions’: “Prince’s personally-owned and played Yellow Cloud Electric Guitar — an instrument as unique and innovative as the artist’s legendary contribution to the music world — will be offered exclusively in Heritage Auctions’ Entertainment & Music Memorabilia Auction June 24-25, 2016 in Beverly Hills. The guitar appears at auction with an opening bid of $30,000.”

"It's interesting to realize that Prince personally designed and commissioned this piece of art and it carries hallmarks of his famous "Love Symbol", which he would adopt as his name during a famous contract dispute with Warner Bros. in the early 1990s," said Garry Shrum, Director of Music Memorabilia at Heritage Auctions. "One glimpse and you have no doubt that this is Prince's guitar."
