SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) — A 50-foot electric guitar is about to join the Sioux City skyline.
The Sioux City Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1je6vGL ) workers on Monday began to assemble the guitar-shaped sign that will be placed atop the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. The operation is expected to open Aug. 1.
Hard Rock General Manager Todd Moyer says the guitar body will be connected with the Hard Rock logo and guitar neck as the sign is mounted on the roof of the four-story Battery Building. A crane will be used to lift the sign into place Thursday.
The sign will be visible for miles and will be easily spotted by motorists on Interstate 29.
The $128.5 million downtown casino and hotel will employ about 500 people.
