We took the factory tour. It was interesting but the tour was not easy to follow. We saw several work stations where individual tasks were done. But we didn't really see the guitar from start to finish. It takes many days for a completed guitar...More

Not sure but you want to try and go when they are making the guitars, you get to walk around the factory floor and see all the work stations.
