Prince already used whammy bar in the late 90s?

i know that except Private Joy and 777 9311 guitar solo Prince didnt use whammy bar.

he didnt use it until 2000

but listen to Joint 2 Joint guitar solo

he is clearly using one

also some tracks on 1999 and Lovesexy u can hear whammy,though Lovesexy can be Miko

What do you mean he didn't use it until 2000? You point to several options and then say but not until 2000?

He also starts Endorphinmachine with a pretty big dive.

I'm not saying he never used whammy bar on the odd occasion but he didn't start using it regularly in live performances unti November 2002 as he had them fitted to a few of his guitars while in Japan for ONA.. he then used them for years until eventually dropping them again

anything to back that up ? I dont recall hearing any evidence of it until Japan ONA but i'd have to go back and listen to be sure..

Also I can't recall a single picture of a whammy bar pre-Nov 2002 - got any to show me?
