Vintage Hard Rock Cafe Gibson Guitar Melbourne Pin
Pin Has the Australian flag as back ground and the store location on the guitar neck.
Above average condition and a nice collectible from a now defunct store.
Guitars and the more obvious rock themes are particularly popular with pin collectors. Hard Rock Cafe Pins are usually issued each year and will normally feature the faces of some of the world’s greatest rock stars or their famous guitars.
The Melbourne Australia location opened on October 21, 1995 and closed October 21, 2007.
The owning franchise collapsed in 2007 leaving creditors chasing debts in excess of 4 million dollars. Discussion were underway for a revival of the HRC group Australian licenses in 2011 but to date nothing has been clearly decided.
