I have for sale a brand new, unplayed, factory fresh Hohner HTA490 'The Artist' guitar. This is a re-issue of the famous 'The Prinz' guitar used by Prince throughout his entire career.
The guitar features a soft rock maple body, flame maple top in Honey Amber finish with a compound radius maple neck and maple fretboard. It is accented with "Tortise Shell" pickguard, bridge guard and headstock overlay and chrome hardware. The guitar has a string-through-body design, a Strat-style bridge with individual adjustable saddles, Tesla VR-1 Single Coil Alnico pickups at the bridge and neck and Wilkinson "mini" style 18:1 high ratio tuners. Apparently Hohner worked with Prince's guitar tech to ensure this re-issue is as close as possible to Prince's version that he plays regularly. Specifications are:
· Soft Rock Maple Body
· Tiger Flame Maple book-matched top and back with Walnut “skunk” stripe
· Tortoise-shell binding
· 25.5” scale 1 pc. Maple Neck w/ Walnut "skunk stripe"
· Dunlop™ 6105 Fretwire
· Wilkinson™ mini-style 18:1 high ratio tuning machines
· Tesla™ custom-select Alnico VR-1 single coil pickups
· 3-way “Blade” pickup selector
· Master Volume and Tone Controls
· Custom-design Hardshell case INCLUDED!
