Any ones that he used for great guitar solos, Jimi Hendrix covers and whatnot...

I think his best solos and guitar based music came when he started using the Strat.

The insane SNL "Fury" is testament that he mastered it.
But that's debatable. There are so much insane solos scattered throughout all periods.

True. I was just never a fan of the cloud or symbol guitar. To me the symbol guitar never had a great sound. And the cloud guitar looked like a toy.

Nope! Though I should point out I was never a fan of the whammy bar. Perhaps Prince just didn't know how to use it properly.

You know, I always felt the more "gimmicky" guitars like the symbol guitars, the model C, the Sardonyx, the Orr, and yes even the cloud guitars.... were more like cool-looking stage props than awesome, inspiring instruments. I just can't imagine using a symbol guitar at home or in the studio, it's kinda crap. So for that reason, I always really liked it when he played more ordinary instruments.

Like the Madcat. I love the fact that he loved it so much. It's really not that special to look at onstage, but I love that it seemed to inspire him to play for so much of his career.

The big Ibanez, that big chunky jazz-box kinda made no sense with his look or music of the time, but it was obviously a cool guitar that he loved playing.

The Vox, these were cheap mass-produced guitars with weird pickups and were pretty much a flop at the time, but clearly he bonded with them and enjoyed how it made him play a little differently at that time in his career.

And the strats, ofc fittied with FR trem and EMGs. There was a time when he was kinda clueless about how to use trem for anything other than stunts, like he did in the 90s. But later in his career he was doing really expressive, interesting things with the Floyd Rose trem - he probably overdid in some ways but it was cool to see him growing as a player and branching out etc.

Even just a regular Fender jazz bass or something, no bullshit, no gimmicks.

Other stuff like the vintage Epiphone, or the big Gretsch... so awesome.

i miss seeing Prince & Dez play their Telecasters together

Dez Dickerson is maybe the most underrated, overlooked and oft-forgotten member of P's Kingdom... other than Prince himself, NO ONE looked cooler holding and playing a guitar, than the mighty Desmond D. Dickerson... him, P, Andre & The Doctor had incredible chemistry and energy on stage, and i ALWAYS missed that...
