the Bass Guitars of Prince 1977-2016

I bought this book earlier this year and I love it. I know there are so many more bass guitars that could have been added and other accessories but it really showed me more of an intimate sided of Prince.
The artists choice of tools(instruments, paints/paint brushes, pencils, pens/ink, canvas, etc, that investment
Some of the instruements that I've never known him to play 'live/video' feel like the outtakes of the album era's

What is your favorite bass by Prince (or even those in his band at the time)?

The bass with the eye on it looked pretty cool.

The One-Eye Bass is the most iconic. None (or not many) of the other basses are as iconic or instantly recognizable as his regular guitars.

Do u know if this is the exact same one he had in 87-88?

I always thought it was Black but seems to be a dark blue
