As a long time Fender Strat owner, of which is now considered a vintage guitar, our trip from Ontario, Canada to visit California had to include the Fender Factory tour. It was a pilgrimage of sort for me. I was definitely NOT disappointed. Our tour guide, Dave, was great and all employees were friendly and happy to work for Fender.... More

We flew, with another couple, from Vancouver to LA for my 50th birthday. One of the main reasons was to visit the Fender plant (as a Strat player who spent most of my 20's travelling the country as a working musician) this seemed like a great start to the weekend. We arrived Friday at 3ish only to find them closed... More

We were extremely impressed with the entire facility. Although I got lost getting there and arriving too late for the daily tours. After meeting Dave Maddox and telling our story of how we were visiting from Vancouver and would be unable to return to Fender on this vacation, he kindly gave us a tour of the facilities. Dave is also... More

We drove all the way from San Diego to find out that it was closed. We knew there was no tours of the factory that day, but not the visitor centre. We cheaked their website everyday to make sure it was open, and it also said on their door they were open but a girl came outside and said "What... More

I heard about this and went to see it. They offer tours and the place is Fantastic. The guided tour takes you through the entire plant and shows you how Fender Guitars are made. They make the parts here at the factory instead of the usual import stuff. The displays of guitars is fascinating. They have one in a display... More

The Fender Visitor Center is a "must see" place for all guitar lovers that travel the greater L.A. area. Learn all about the history of the electric guitar brand no. 1 by touring the factory. See how much hand work is still done to build a Fender guitar!

If you've never been to the Fender plant, it's a great outing. $10 gets you a tour through the production facility. After that, you can visit their company store where you can custom order a guitar. They have a room in there with all the guitar body stiles and all the finishes. Lots of other fun stuff in there and... More

One of the main reasons for our first ever visit to the USA was so that we could visit here, and we were not dissapointed. The memorabilia and wealth of information was vast and varied. The factory tour was very interesting and took you through all the stages of making the Fender guitars in their various incarnations. This tour only... More

As a longtime guitarist and Stratocaster player, this place is a mecca. Do yourself a favor and take the factory tour. It is excellent and I got to meet Fender Master Builder Todd Krause!

It's great looking at the vintage guitars, amplifiers , etc. the amount of songs that have a fender instrument in it is amazing. I wish it was bigger but it's still amazing. Maybe they should combine the Fender Museum in Fullerton, CA with the one in Corona.

Thank Ben S
