Work is underway on what's soon to be a Sioux City, Iowa USA landmark.
The Hard Rock Casino guitar has landed in town and crews are preparing it to be hoisted up onto the roof. The iconic symbol is being built in two separate sections on the ground and will be put together once on top of the building. LED lights will be used to help illuminate the guitar at night.
The process, crews say, is very dangerous... from the video..."What they are doing right now behind me is they are mounting hardware on so they can lift another part of the guitar and bolt it together. So we lift the whole base of the guitar at one time. And lift it right in the pole you see behind me. From there, we'll lift the neck of the guitar and that will be bolted on on the roof with all the guys on the roof," says Roger Cox, Owner of Midwest Casino Supply.
They hope to get the guitar up Wednesday morning.
