What is Prince's favorite guitar?

  

 
 
Prince Hohner Telecaster! Available From Us! Order Now!

Born Prince Rogers Nelson in 1958, he became a driving force in the pop scene in the 1980’s. One part of Prince's rig that has stood out for a good portion of his career is his guitars. Known for the unique Cloud guitars as well as his Symbol guitar, Prince’s instruments reflect his personality and stage presence. And every Prince fan knows that Prince’s favorite guitar is a telecaster. From the beginning of his career to his latest concerts, you can always see him play this flamed maple Prince Hohner Telecaster with maple neck and matching leopard print strap.

In the 70’s, Prince (not being famous yet) bought the Prince Hohner Telecaster. There are rumors that he bought this guitar since the pickguard matched perfectly with leopard strap he already had. But I guess there were more reasons:

* The looks are fantastic, beautiful book matched flamed maple front and back
* Building quality is excellent
* The Prince Hohner Telecaster guitar body is made from maple (rarely used by builders) which gives it a very distinct, bright, funky (and that’s important!) sound

Prince owns a couple of original Prince Hohner Telecasters (at least two) but the guitars he plays now are built by luthiers. It’s a known fact that he ordered (already years ago) three exact replica’s from luthier Roger Sadowsky. These were designed in the early 70’s and later H.S. Anderson sold the rights to Hohner in Germany. Production stayed in Japan but with the Hohner logo. The proximity of the bridge pickup to the bridge itself produced a unique tone that had the perfect honk for funk causing Prince to fall in love with the Prince Hohner Telecaster. He owns several examples of these, most of which have had the neck replaced at one point due to him wearing them out.

part of me feels that he also liked his Hohner because it was a small, thin guitar. Prince was not a big guy and if you notice he NEVER played a Gibson (though there are a few exceptions out there) and Gibson's tend to have heavier bodies and chunkier necks that a guy with small hands wouldn't like as much. I am only speculating, but I think this may have been a factor too.
