FILE - This April 22, 2013 file photo shows Memphis-based guitarist Robert Johnson standing by a display of guitars that belonged to Chet Atkins and Johnny Cash that he donated to the National Music Museum in Vermillion, S.D. Johnson also donated the guitar played by Elvis Presley during his final tour, but that may have to be taken off display. A lawsuit filed in July 2014 in South Dakota is seeking to determine who is the legal owner of the Elvis Presley guitar. A man now claims he is the owner of the slightly smashed acoustic guitar. (AP Photo/Dirk Lammers, File)SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — An acoustic guitar Elvis Presley smashed during his final tour has sparked a custody fight between the South Dakota museum that currently displays it and a collector who insists the instrument never should have ended up there.
