    They should put a pokerchip on the thing with the words "You" and "Lose" in place of "Rhythm" and "Treble".

    I think that's going to depend on the pickups.

    Not only is that ridiculous….. but the RR hall of fame is a joke.

    I went there a few years ago and was shocked at how poorly curated that "museum" was.
    They had a late '70's tele next to a photo of Aretha and band in the studio. The tag read "This is the guitar that was used on Aretha's debut for Atlantic Records…."etc.. Not even possible.

    and a late 70's lp deluxe next to a picture of Joe Walsh claiming it to be the guitar Joe used on all the James Gang etc… stuff. B.S.

    And those were the tip of the iceberg.

    Cleveland totally deserves better.

    I have been watching them build this from the beginning. It is something I pass everyday driving on the freeway

    New twist on the expression:

    "Guitar build".
    Or should it be "guitar assembly"?
    :hmm:

    :dunno:

    Sounds a lot the the Hard Rock Cafe. The one they put in Detroit is a total joke. The first (and last) time I went there, they had a "Les Paul" , that was supposedly signed by Les himself. Only problem - the guitar was an obvious counterfeit, and looked WAY too new to be from anywhere before 2009.

    It's a horseshit "museum" and is a tourist trap. It's a sad thing to make the music irrelevant at a museum focusing on music.

    Lotta references to both the HR Hotel/Cafe and the RRHoF. Are they same ownership?
