Adding to the City Seal of Memphis

Long time ago I suggested that Memphis needs to have a symbol of Creativity added to its Seal.

Well I've gone ahead and done it.

You might think it lame to use a guitar, and you might be right, but it's a simple symbol to match the other simple but powerful symbols already present in the Seal.

By the way, I believe the guitar is a Fender Stratocaster. If I knew what Willie Kizart was playing in Rocket 88, I would use that instead. Couldn't have been a Stratocaster because they weren't created until 1954. In lieu of that information, I used this picture of Ike Turner to choose the guitar.
