I don't play guitar, or any instrument for that matter, but thought I would drop into the Fender center. I was not disappointed. It was interesting seeing the different kinds of guitar and learning some history. It was also great listening to folks who know something about music, guitars and music culture and pop culture. I really enjoyed visiting and... More

My husband is a guitar enthusiast so we really wanted to visit this Centre. We found out that the visitor's centre is closed right now due to renovations but they do offer private tours when you contact them directly. We were able to go on a tour in August with about 12 other people. The tour guide was super informative... More

I've been looking forward to this tour for some time. We've only a little while longer living in the LA area. So, today we took time off from work and made the drive in morning traffic out to Corona. The factory was easy to find and there is plenty of parking. The facility was clean and well laid out. Even... More

Having played the guitar for the last 45 years, the 1 hour drive from Long Beach seemed a small price to pay to visit the Fender Factory. I was like a kid in a sweet shop, as we were the first ones there (just after 9) so had the showroom to ourselves. Unfortunately the museum section was out of bounds... More

If you like history, especially Rock and Roll history, this is a place you must see. It's free to visit and has some really cool stuff to show as the Fender Electric guitar is a pivotal part of Rock and Roll History. They also have clothing and stuff to buy. If you can take the factory tour - that is... More

The Museum and factory tour is a must do for Fender fans and those who appreciate guitars. We were lucky to be on a small sized tour and guide David provided heaps of information and a few opportunities not afforded to those in larger groups - which was very much appreciated by his followers. I was a tag along on... More

I took a friend that is a player from the UK.. He enjoyed the entire place.. You get up and personal with the makers of the fine guitars.. A must for any player

Visitor center itself very interesting with the opportunity to play a number of guitars through a great selection of iconic amplifiers. Paid for one of their tours of the factory....advertised as an hour tour. Tour guide didn't really engage with the visitors, seemed disinterested and just doing a job. The hour tour lasted half an hour max....we were rushed through... More

Very nice free exhibit hall of very famous guitars/performers, another exhibit of their VIP guitar makers, and lots of history on display. There's also a factory tour for $10 adults 18+, 8 seniors, 6 teens, free 12 and under. Open exhibit and tour hours vary...check ahead.
