Even if you are not a musician you have to be fascinated with this place. The history that is Leo Fender is truly remarkable! What this man and his products did for the entire music industry is amazing.

The visitors center is now closed but they do offer factory tours on a very limited basis. Try this phone number (951) 898-4001. Good luck.
