Guitars of the stars on display in Nashville

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Legendary guitars will be on display at the Tennessee State Museum including one played by Elvis.

The exhibit, called "The Guitar: An American Love Story," opens Thursday.

Among instruments also on loan for the show are Eric Clapton's 1958 Gibson Explorer and singing cowboy star Roy Roger's OM-45 Deluxe guitar made by C.F. Martin & Co., circa 1930. There will be more than 150 guitars in all.

A 150-page catalog about the collection is on sale in the museum bookstore, and there are viewing stations where visitors can see and hear the instruments being played by great musicians.

There is no admission charge at the museum in the Polk Cultural Center near the state Capitol in Nashville.
