Prince’s Love of Color Was Reflected in His Guitars

Prince had some of the craziest and most colorful guitars in music history. More than simply custom guitars (which many musicians have), Prince had singular guitars with shapes that had never been used before. Above, this beautiful multicolored guitar was used late in his career when he had his all-female rock band, 3rdEyeGirl.

Prince changed guitars like he changed outfits. I don’t know how he didn’t electrocute himself during the Super Bowl in the pouring rain but somehow, his guitars had his back on that one.

This is one of his most distinctive guitars, which echoes the shape of his famous Love Symbol.

And here he is wearing the Love Symbol pendant. The guitar he has here was used throughout his career. Like B.B. King had Lucille, Prince had Mad Cat.

This is my favorite guitar. When you visit Paisley Park, you will see it in a case in the hallway leading to the soundstage. It’s so golden that it glows!
