Andy Beech of Bellingham never met or talked to Prince, and he never saw the music superstar perform live. But Beech has much more than a mere fan’s reason to feel saddened by Prince’s unexpected death Thursday, April 21. Beech made a total of 31 mahogany-and-maple guitars for Prince — 27 of them called Clouds, which have their own unusual shape and an elongated top horn, and four Symbols, including one that Prince used when he played “Purple Rain” during his famous halftime performance at the 2007 Super Bowl.
