At the end of May, the Cloud 3 guitar that belonged to Prince, a popular American artist in the 80s and 90s, will be auctioned.

This guitar may become the most expensive of all that belonged to the musician. The Gurdian writes about it.

The auction house announced that this musical instrument will be put up for sale at the MUSIC ICONS auction, which will be held from May 29 to 30, along with items which belonged to Michael Jackson and John Lennon.

Our company is proud to maintain a proven track record of sourcing and presenting instruments of unprecedented historical significance, and Prince's Cloud 3 now joins this esteemed category, Julien's Auctions CEO David Goodman said in a statement.

According to the auction house, the musical instrument was “one of Prince's central instruments”, which he used on many tours during the height of his popularity in the 1980s and 1990s. It has been called an “iconic symbol” of Prince's “titanic career and rock 'n' roll legacy”. The instrument has already been sold twice: at Christie's auction in 2005 for $5,247.31; and later for over $73,000 in an eBay auction. The starting price is currently $100,000, but the famous guitar is expected to sell for between $400,000 and $600,000.
