A bidding war resulted in a $700,000 price tag for a Prince guitar — the highest price ever paid for one of the late icon's guitars, according to Julien's Auctions.

The blue teal "Cloud" guitar went far above the $60,000 to $80,000 expected at the Saturday auction. The guitar was one of several items up for sale by rock legends.
