The Purple One
The Artist Formerly Known as Prince

Prince Rogers Nelson was a man of many names and many talents.

Prince fused a range of musical genres, from funk and R&B to synthpop and rock.  He delivered this signature sound with unapologetic style and flair, becoming an award-winning and best-selling artist.  He was known for his over-the-top persona, but his talent ran deep as a multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, and producer.

Prince designed and played this "Yellow Cloud" guitar.  It was custom-made in 1989 by teh firm Knut-Koupee Enterprises, from the artist's native Minneapolis, Minnesota.  Prince's distinctive personal symbol adorns both the top and side of the fingerboard.
