Hard Rock Cafe Guitar Endowment

Support the Hard Rock Guitar Endowment

Neon guitar signs became the symbol world-wide for the Hard Rock brand. The Las Vegas guitar sign is of great historical importance because it was the flagship – the very first Hard Rock Café guitar sign in the world.  It graced the corner of Paradise Road and Harmon Avenue from 1990 – 2017 and was featured in Hollywood films like "Honey I Blew Up the Kid"  and National Lampoon’s "Vegas Vacation."




Time is running out to be recognized for your contribution!

Donors of $500 or more will be invited to attend the light-up party for the Hard Rock sign after its installation in the Neon Boneyard. Donors of $250 or more will be recognized by name at the base of the Hard Rock sign. Prominence of name dependent on donation level. All donors will be recognized by name on the Neon Museum website. Don't wait to contribute!  The opportunity to have your name on the base or to attend the light-up party ends December 31, 2018.
