So if you want to plan a trip from London or anywhere else in the world, don't bother! Emailed probably 11 times and called 3 times, messaged them on twitter with ZERO RESPONSE from either channel! So much for American hospitality! Maybe a great tour but customer service is so poor, I am trying to organise a tour and I... More

Well the amazing thing about the Fender Guitar visitor centre is that the factory is making up to 500 guitars a day which is an American manufacturing success story. The visitor centre is OK. I've read the rave reviews, I am a guitarist and I love Fender. But the tour itself on the day I went was 'amateur night'! Very... More

I've visited Corona multiple times while my son was a student at UCR and only just found out about this place on our recent trip to graduation. There is a tour ($10 adults, less for Senior, students) of the factory where they make Stratocasters, Telecasters, basses and other instruments. It's fascinating for anyone interested in manufacturing, woodworking, music, guitars or... More

I went down to the Fender Corona factory with the wife (not a guitarist), and we both loved the Fender Factory Tour and the Visitor Center. It´s about a one-hour drive from LA, where we were visiting at the time. The Visitor Center is free of charge, and there is a lot of stuff to see, from historic memorabilia to... More

Made a special side trip to do this factory tour (while my husband and son went to Disney). Dave Brown gave an enthusiastic and informative tour of the factory. You see the process of Teles and Strats being made from pieces of wood straight through to viewing completed awesome custom models. (The only thing you don't see is the paintwork... More

Let me Tele you, this tour is out of the Strat-osphere. The visitors center is free and houses some great displays about Rock and Roll legends and their Fender guitars. There is a jam room where you can plug in a cool guitar and jam for as long as you want. There's plenty of swag and Fender gadgets to buy... More

Took the tour and it was very, very interesting! Would recommend even for those not super into guitars. The tour was informative, interesting, organized and the time flew by. Dave, our guide, was very knowledgeable and entertaining. I think there is a minimum age requirement. Great gift shop too!

Did the tour with my brother in law who has no interest in guitars. Even he was very impressed with the knowledge of the tour guide and the information presented in the visitor centre and on the tour. Very well laid out visitors centre with many interesting displays. The use of headphones for everyone was a very good idea and... More

I can't say enough about our TWO visits to Fender, the Visitors Center and Factory. They were actually closed on the day and yet they bent over backwards for us!! I bought a guitar so rare that it was actually the test model for a limited run and even ended up asking them to build me a new one -... More

We thoroughly enjoyed this tour of the guitar factory. So impressed with the visitor center/museum. The factory tour was very informative especially with the headphones so we could hear everything the guide had to say; it makes one appreciate the craftsmanship that went into each guitar especially the custom made ones. It was worth the admission fee.
