Anderson Mad Cat HS-1 1974 Prince Guitar MadCat Original Case. One of only 500 made. Early 1970's, ALL ORIGINAL and Untouched: Body, neck, frets, electronics and all hardwear. You will never find one of these in such a great condition. Including original case, with a vintage Delta airlines sticker on it.
Excellent sounding, playing, action and feel. Neck is straight and solid, truss rod works fine. Practically mint for its age, No serious blemishes. Definitely a pre-1975 guitar since it is only signed and numbered on the neck, and not numbered the on back of the head stock.Completely solid with no play or sound issues at all. Unbelievable 3-D quilting on front and back maple, better than the photos can show.
This early MADCAT has a Maple 2 piece top and Back. The center wood is Sen (Japanese Ash) and a special pancake construction, which is particular construction of vintage MADCATs.
Weighs just over 9 pounds. Heavy for a tele and it has sustain more like a heavier Les Paul. A Hohner branded HS ANDERSON Mad Cat was Prince's main guitar from the early eighties, he used it on all albums and most of his concerts. Do not hesitate to ask any questions!
