ATLANTIC CITY — With less than a week until the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City opens, crews continue installing signs and seeing to last-minute details.

And sometimes, in the rush, people make mistakes.

A 30-foot-tall sign, modeled after a Gibson Les Paul guitar, was installed Thursday morning at Route 30 and Virginia Avenue.

According to, the word rhythm was misspelled “RHYTHEM” on the pseudo-guitar’s rhythm and treble pickup selector switch.

Hard Rock officials said the typo was corrected Thursday afternoon by removing the extra vinyl letter.

A larger Hard Rock guitar will be installed at 3 p.m. Saturday at the resort’s entrance.

The Hard Rock will open at noon Thursday, June 28, an hour before the new Ocean Resort Casino.
