Prince: Yellow Cloud guitar going up for auction
In the aftermath of Prince’s death on April 21, personal belongings of the Grammy-winning musician will no doubt become hotly-desired possessions. Now you have a chance to own some of them, including the Purple One’s Yellow Cloud electric guitar, which is among some of his items headed to the auction block.
Heritage Auctions is handling the sale of the guitar the late artist used to perform hits including “Cream” and “Gett Off.” Starting with an opening big of $30,000, the guitar is one of several that were custom-made for him in the 1980s and ’90s. Another Yellow Cloud guitar is housed at Washington, D.C.’s National Museum of American History.
The Beverly Hills auction, which begins June 24, will also include an original demo tape featuring songs “Just as Long as We’re Together,” “My Love is Forever,” and “Jelly Jam,” as well as record sales awards.
