Another place to look for a "Veleno" Guitar is in a Hard Rock cafe, as occasionally there is one on display at a Hard Rock, such as in Atlanta, Georgia. Hard Rock Cafe also came out with a collection of three guitar pins featuring the "Veleno" guitar. One pin is featured at the Hard Rock Cafe in Tijuana, another in Acapulco, and a third in Sydney, Australia, which is a commemorative pin for the Veleno guitar made for Marc Bolan of T-Rex, the very first guitar Veleno ever sold.

Below is Lonesome Dave Peverett of the group "Foghat" with his Veleno guitar which was hanging in the Hard Rock Cafe in Orlando, Florida until the Cafe was rebuilt in 1998. We were told that from there the guitar was moved to another Hard Rock Cafe, unknown to us at this time.
