eBay is truly a wonderful thing isn’t it? For many years, musicians alike have used the 'trusty' shopping site to score a bargain on some gear. The only thing is we always most likely end up winning a Korg box rather than the actual synth we thought we had paid for.
Well another suss character has appeared on eBay, claiming to have a guitar that once belonged to Prince.
The guitar is a custom purple Cloud model from Schecter's Diamond Series and has a starting bid of $70,000.
The seller (based in the Netherlands) has provided little to no information about the guitar, however he did provide 9 photos and the following short blurb:
"[This guitar was] personally owned by Prince and used on stage in performances. Prince had a few Cloud guitars. The yellow Cloud has recently been sold for over a hunderd thousand dollars. This purple Cloud guitar went from Las Vegas to Chamonix, France, where it has been on display. After that I bought the guitar in an auction. [It will be] sold with full COA (certificate of authenticity) from Art of Music."
Also attached to the listing is a clip of Prince playing the cloud guitar on stage, with the seller claiming that the guitar for sale is the one in the video clip. Watch it below:
