    Mike was the pic taken from your house? Very close if it was -- yikes the music might keep you up at night. Looks to be an electric guitar - hopefully the amp (phase 2) won't be as big.

    If I recall you live in Florida - right? It doesn't seem there are many other places where a developer would build a giant guitar except Florida or Las Vegas.

    No it was taken from an intersection just south of the Hard Rock.

    I for some reason liked to see buildings shaped like familiar objects, for instance I have seen one that looks like a paper milk carton, and one like an Easter basket , and, one that resembles a boot, I remember doing a rendering of the boot one. Interesting find Ross and cool photo Mike.
    I have a photo of the boot one, but not one scanned at the moment. Anyway it was done a long time ago.

    Not sure about that Larry. How about the Elephant Hotel in Atlantic City?
