Italian Prince Party!

On June 7th 2017 Rudy Giorgio Panizzi had an Italian Prince party where he presented his book "Sometimes it Snows In April" and also exhibited his Rave Blue Schecter cloud guitar! Just Check out all the cool stuff he has in this room.....aside from the obvious cloud guitar the Luke Skywalker cutout that's dressed to the 9's has to be my favorite thing! Thank you for sharing this Rudy!

Sometimes It Snows In April (Book)


I got a very cool e-mail from a guy who wrote a book all about Prince with one of the chapters dedicated to his guitars. He has been a fan his whole life and he also has his own artwork in the book as well! He is trying to get it translated and published for the U.S. so we will have a chance to get it! He sent me a few photos of it posing with his beautiful rave blue cloud guitar! 
Thank U Rudy

Ruff Looking Cloud!

I'n not sure on the backstory on this cloud but it was posted by Shyota Nakagawa. It looks like a Edwards ESP to me but I think it's seen better days! But I still love it!

The Last Cloud?


Wow....I finally received the new blue cloud from Paisley Park and it looks great and it looks even better with it's family! Will this be my last cloud? I was asked if I would be getting anymore but at this time I don't know. the only ones left would be the Batman / Graffiti Bridge black cloud and the Superbowl orange cloud. Who knows...if it happens it happens! The peuple cloud in the second row came to me a few months ago and it is stunning! I know he never made a purple one but how could I not get that! Thanks to all the people who helped make this happen over the years!

Rave!


Finally....this one has eluded me for along time but almost 17 years later I have it! I had a chance to get one when I got my white cloud but it was just too much money at the time. I always regretted it but now all is well....I just need a bigger place! It was never my intention to collect guitars like this but it just kind of happened.  It really is beautiful and I'm diggin the purple lined case too!


Orange Cloud Mystery Solved!

We have all seen this photo for years which appeared around the time Prince was to do the Superbowl.

We all assumed that was what he was gonna use but he opted for the purple symbol instead. Had never seen another pic of it....until now! They do not mention anything about the Super Bowl but at least now I know it exists!

The Alpha Cloud


Originally a bass guitar it was the inspiration for the iconic cloud guitar used by Prince. in 1978 Prince purchased it for Andre Cymone when they were out in L.A. working on the 4U album. It has appeared in videos over the years like "My Name Is Prince" and "Why U wanna Treat Me so Bad". Word has it that it still resides in Paisley Park somewhere.


Colorful Cloud Art


Reithen's Orr Guitar 4 Sale!

Reithen Satire Curtis is building a replica Orr Guitar. It was used by Prince early on in his career long before thw cloud and symbol. If your interested in it contact Reithen.

Dave Rusan - First Prince Cloud




A Beautiful Yellow Cloud


Posted by Alexander Cras on Facebook.








This pic was posted by Ralph MacMurray on Facebook a while back. The man in the photo is said to be John Haga. Sorry I don't have anymore info than that. Obviously an old photo but I can't be sure when. The Iconic Honer/Honers and I know he used a black cloud on the Parade Tour and we all know about the white clouds.



The cloud on the wall could be the Andre Cymone cloud he used early on. It could be some kind of repair shop or just somewhere on tour.....either way its a great picture!


A Wonderful Collection!

New Schecter Cloud Guitars


As most of you know Paisley Park has begun selling both whits and blue cloud guitars. Some people have already received them and some are still waiting for a invoice. like most I Pre-ordered mine last November but never heard back until I sent them an e-mail letting them know I have never received the $250.00 deposit invoice. I was surprised when I got the invoice the very next day! A few days later I fecieved the invoice for the remaining amount. Now I'm just playing the waiting game.....I know some people have already received them so I'm sure I'll get it eventually. I'm not sure how many are going to be made but they might just be making a small batch at a time (just my guess) . I her is a video of unboxing his white cloud.
