Fender is the gold standard, and the factory tour is no exception. So cool, the history, seeing the guitars made. Leave your credit card at home, or you will want to buy one of these beauties right of the factory floor.

If you are at all interested in anything Fender and have the opportunity, not to be missed. Great tour, loads of information from our guide (Dave) and clearly people that are enthusiastic about their job. Very interesting to see how it all happens. Great gift shop/memorabilia area and even a jam room. Some great opportunities here, like being able to... More

The tour is very good in that they go through entire factory with you to show you how guitars are made. They show you a video of how they paint the guitars (no walk through due to the fumes from the paints). The guide even said if there is a finished guitar on the floor you see and like you... More

My wife and I went to see the new Fender visitor center and museum in Corona, Ca. We were met with an amazing collection of Fender guitars and amplifiers, along with historic displays and a nice gift shop. After viewing the center, we went on the factory tour, where we saw the complete process of making the guitars. It was... More

I have been travelling to California for business for several years, but had not had spare time when the tour was on. This year, I made time, and it was well worth it! Drove to Corona from the coast on spec, didn't book in advance, just checked opening and tour times. Caught the morning tour, Dave took us around was... More

My family and I loved every minute of this tour - from jamming on any guitar you want in the jam room to even purchasing our own fenders picked right off the factory floor. As we were travelling a long way to take part I had rang the centre from Australia to check opening times and if we needed to... More

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
