 A bright yellow, uniquely shaped guitar used by Prince to perform such tunes as "Cream" and "Gett Off" is going up for auction.

Heritage Auctions is selling one of the late artist's "yellow cloud" electric guitars beginning June 24 with an opening bid of $30,000. The guitar was one of several custom guitars Prince used in the 1980s and 1990s.
