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.

This was a visit I had been looking forward to, having travelled from the UK and being a Fender fan and player, since I first heard Jimi hendrix play one, when I was about 8. When I arrived, had a walk around the hall of fame and was impressed at the many displays, which showed various fender players throughout the... More

My husband was really looking forward for this tour months before we planned our US trip. He made sure that we are gong to visit the visitor center. And boy, when we finally reached the place, he was like a kid in a candy store! We took the tour and saw the art of making guitars. You can take pictures... More

Free parking. TOI's. Free entry to "museum" and gift shop. Fee associated with factory tour. Music plays while you visit cases of stories, artists and guitar. We did not take the factory tour.

My husband is guitar mad and couldn't wait to visit this place. He loved the jam room where he could pick up and play the guitars but found the rest a bit too 'touristy' (crazy I know as we were tourists!) He did not go on the tour as he had watched it on YouTube and it seemed a bit... More
