Elvis Presley's 1958 Isana Black Pearl Acoustic guitar, is now on exhibit at the Memphis Rock 'n' Soul Museum. Elvis reportedly used the guitar while stationed in Germany.
The new exhibit features artifacts from entertainers ranging from Elvis Presley, Les Paul, Isaac Hayes and Whitney Houston.
“Our ’60 Years of Rock ‘n’ Roll’ exhibit serves to transport our museum guests back in time… maybe 10 years, maybe 50 years… to remind them of a few of those world-shaping moments. From there the exhibit invites them to get involved and help to fill an online timeline with hundreds of other ‘must include’ rock ‘n’ roll events," said John Doyle, executive director of the Memphis Rock ‘n’ Soul Museum.
