Rules & Regulations
Donated by: Mike Alvarez

Created as a tribute to the legendary Prince, Mike Alvarez handcrafted this update to the classic “Madcat” guitar made iconic by the virtuoso instrumentalist, bandleader, and electrifying performer. Few people appreciate the craftsmanship of handmade guitar and this one is impressive! Even the case reflects the heart and soul of both the artist in wood and the artist to whom it’s dedicated.

  • 21 fret Warmoth (lic. By Fender)
  • Maple neck
  • Book Matched Flame Maple Top and Back with Swamp Ash core
  • Purple Heart accent stripe
  • Seymour Duncan Cool Rails Strat Guitar Pickup (Neck)
  • Seymour Duncan Hot Rails Strat Guitar Pickup (Bridge)
  • Hand Cut Celluloid Tortoise Shell Bridge
  • Output Jack and Pickguard Gotoh GTC102
  • Non-Tremelo Guitar Bridge 2 1/16” spacing
  • Prince Tribute Guitar Neck Plate Fender
  • Tele 3 Way Control Plate
  • Fender Schaller 2 Pin Chrome Locking Tuners (made in Germany)
  • String Tree Guide Retainer Bone Nut Ernie Ball Regular Slinky Guitar Strings Honey Amber Polyurethane Finish (by Pat Wilkins Guitars – Van Nuys)
