ORIGINAL H.S. ANDERSON MAD CAT The same model guitar Prince played during the movie and throughout his career. This is a 1970s HS Anderson Mad Cat.  This guitar has that unique twang sound that is heard on many of Prince Albums especially Dirty Mind/Controversy.    A.  A true players guitar and comes with the hard skb case. 
In addition to his sheer musical genius, Prince has always had an eye for style. Prince will probably always be most associated with his comparatively pedestrian H.S. Anderson-designed Hohner Tele-style that he used on albums like Purple Rain, 1999, and Musicology.
The Hohner’s subdued style had a way of enhancing the mystery around it. It wasn’t a vintage Fender, and yet one of the most inventive and ripping guitarists of the day was doing major damage with the thing—there had to be more going on than meets the eye. Indeed, Prince’s Hohner was more than just another cheap Fender knock-off. In fact, Prince’s Hohner is a Japanese version of the H.S. Anderson Mad Cat, which was released in 1973 by the Morris company. This is one of the  über-rare originals (there were only a little more than 500 produced).  The centerpiece of your prince and guitar collection.
Set up and ready to play. Smooth neck, It has that great tele sound that you will enjoy every time you play it.  Signed by master crafter Mr. Shinoda n the neck pickup.  This guitar is very hard to find, and you will never let it depart your hands. Good Luck,  thanks for looking at my auction..
