PRINCE OWNED AND PLAYED ORIGINAL CLOUD 2 “BLUE ANGEL” GUITAR, 1984 – WITH ROADCASE AND MAGAZINE
The guitar, currently painted an electric blue finish, has been refinished a number of times, but began white. The guitar has also been painted and used by Prince as peach, light blue, and yellow. The guitar neck is cracked from between the 6th and 7th frets up to the headstock. From 1984 until the time that Andy Beech began making Cloud guitars for Prince in 1993, this was Prince’s primary performance Cloud guitar. Guitar is accompanied
by a custom purple Calzone case with stenciled labeling identifying this as “C1” and listing the address for Paisley Park.
A detailed timeline of this guitar and its many finishes is provided below. It is important to note that this is the only Cloud guitar that was painted the lighter blue/teal color giving it the nickname “Blue Angel.”
