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.

Fender Musical Instruments Corp. manufactures guitars, amplifiers and accessories. The visitor center features the Fender Hall of Fame honoring musicians as diverse as Jimi Hendrix, the Beach Boys and Sheryl Crow who used Fender guitars. I highly recommend taking the one hour factory tour which displays the production process where you'll pass machines making pick guards as well as areas... More

We flew from Sydney to LA/Corona and hubby was like a big kid and loved it. Our factory tour ($10pp) only had 4 people so it was semi private and we got to spend a lot of time looking at the product and a sneak visit to talk to the master builder who is making my husbands custom build guitar....

Get your music gear needs for a good price. If you don't like this store, good luck negotiating price with smaller outfits.

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
