[image-2] Update: Bonnie Raitt’s resonator guitar won the most votes as the item that will be exhibited today as part of the Rock Hall's Member & Donor Appreciation Day.

The guitar won via an online member vote and beat out a Neil Schon of Journey electric guitar, a Jon Anderson of YES outfit, a Rihanna bustier and a Josh Klinghoffer of Red Hot Chili Peppers electric guitar.

Raitt used the guitar for both touring and recording. She plays it on “Cry On My Shoulder” from her 1989 album Nick of Time. Raitt was inducted into the Rock Hall in 2000.

The guitar will remain on display through next year’s vote in the Ahmet Ertegun Main Exhibition Hall, adjacent to the Right Here, Right Now exhibit.

Original Post: From 2 to 8 pm. on Saturday, Sept. 29, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame will celebrate Member & Donor Appreciation Day with a series of special events.

There will be an interview and book signing with 2009 Inductee “Little Anthony” Gourdine of Little Anthony and the Imperials, a “Voice Your Choice” event that will allow patrons to recreate the Inductee nominating process during a live interactive event, an opportunity to see items from the museum’s vault, live themed presentations and docent-guided tours.

Members and donors can also mingle during a special happy hour.
