Hohner Prinz

I have a prinz that I may want to sell

Hi APaulO13,

I can't tell you exactly when your guitar was made, but I can tell you it was modeled after the guitar Prince played in "Purple Rain". I think Purple Rain came out in 1984 and I know the Prinz model appears in the 1986 Hohner catalog. I'm not sure when they stopped making the Prinz, but I can tell you it still appears in the 90-91 Hohner catalog.

I think you'll be pretty safe claiming "late 1980's" in a For Sale description.

eBay is probably your best source for determining the guitar's current value. sb


I remebered these coming up before, not much info around but GLW dug up some interesting bits which might help flesh out the details...the thread is:
