i never noticed that he threw it to the rear, i just assumed he threw it straight up and either someone above caught it or there was some kind of line on it.

Guitar tech in front of the stage caught it, it was handed to Oprah for a shot and then retrieved.
PEOPLE OF PAISLEY PARK: The guitar wasn't given to Oprah to keep. Just for a camera shot to make it appear she caught it.

Was Oprah even at the 2004 Rock N Roll Hall of Fame awards?

Wow, so whatever issues Prince may have had with Oprah were gone by the time P gave his guitar to her. Wonder what she will eventually do with it...

"We love that People of Paisley Park made it into a story published by The Current yesterday, and picked up by MSN today...but let’s get it straight:

Oprah gave the guitar back to Prince (via his guitar tech Takumi). We all know how much Prince loved his guitars. "

Then he got it back and was seen playing it every year thereafter.
That leopard spot design is the confirmation that it's the same axe.

The fact that he played it again means that it ascended to guitar heaven...

We don’t mourn artists because we knew them. We mourn them because they helped us know ourselves.
