One of the giant guitar signs that welcomed visitors to the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas has a new home.

The Hard Rock Cafe sign was taken apart into six pieces so it could be transported from the Young Electric Sign Company to the Neon Museum starting Monday.

A spokesperson for the Neon Museum says the sign, made in the style of a Gibson Les Paul, stood in front of the Hard Rock Cafe for 27 years.

Crews will be working on welding and pipe installation throughout the week as the sign is reassembled at the museum's Boneyard.

This guitar stood straight up on the corner of Paradise Road and Harmon Avenue. A Fender Stratocaster-style sign that sits at an angle as part of the Hard Rock Hotel remains in place.
