Prince's Final Performance Guitar to Be Put on Auction in New York

Aside from the white Collings 290 guitar, a motorcycle jacket the 'Let's Go Crazy' hitmaker wore in 'Purple Rain' is also going under the hammer at the Julien's Auctions sale.

AceShowbiz - The guitar Prince played at his final show is going under the hammer at auction next month.

The white Collings 290 guitar is expected to fetch up to $80,000 (GBP61,000) at the Julien's Auctions sale, which will take place at the Hard Rock Cafe in New York.

Prince played the guitar onstage during a surprise performance at a tribute concert to Ray Charles at the Chanhassen Dinner Theater in Minneapolis on March 12, 2016. He went on to play three solos that night in what would be the music legend's last stage performance before his death on April 21, 2016, according to auction house boss Darren Julien.

Prince's custom–made motorcycle jacket from the film "Purple Rain" is also up for grabs at the auction, as well as his scarlet red Gianni Versace couture wool suit he wore on the cover of Esquire Gentleman in 2005 and a "glittery shirt" he donned during the "New Power Soul" tour.

The auction will also offer up memorabilia from Madonna, Michael Jackson, Elvis Presley, and Jimi Hendrix.
