Work begins to revamp a Gold Coast classic

WORKS to revamp one of the Gold Coast landmarks has begun in Surfers Paradise.

The Gibson Guitar above the Hard Rock Cafe will get a $60,000 makeover, not only to fix it but refit it.

Now that the light rail is all finished, locals will have to deal with more traffic delays as they try to work on the 25m neon-lit Gibson Les Paul Standard replica guitar.


Traffic was stopped on Surfers Paradise Boulevard between Cavill Ave and Hanlon St from 6am-4pm yesterday for the first round of work and will close again today to allow the facelift.
