What kind of guitar was Prince's first electric?

Was it similar to the telecaster he had on American Bandstand?

Good question. I've seen in early pics and also displayed at Paisley Park a electric guitar that looks like a Les Paul or copy of one. It has like leather and studs on the front.

well, before the Hohner Madcat from the Dirty Mind period, he had a very similar Fender Telecaster. Before that, there were a few, including a Les Paul looking guitar that had some modification to the body (you can see it in PP during the tour now, the modifications (he sawed of a part) was not done by a professional, it looks kinda ghetto).

If he is at all like most people, it was most likely a Fender Strat (also because of his love for Jimi Hendrix)
