The instrument – Lee’s Fender bass used in the recording of “Tom Sawyer” from the 1981 album Moving Pictures – was installed on Wednesday at the Hall’s museum in Cleveland, along with items from the other 2013 inductees.

Rush was announced along with the other inductees in December, 2012. The group was eligible for induction since 1998.

The induction ceremony will take place on April 18th in Los Angeles.
