“An interesting insight”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

I'm a guitar player, so it was very interesting to see how these guitars get made. I found it very informative, but I don't know whether it would really be suitable for someone who really knows nothing about guitars. it's a real factory, not a tourist attraction where they make things.

“Now I know why they cost so much!”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

The tour is awesome. A very informative tour with knowledgeable staff. This is a must for any guitar player. Watch how each and every guitar is hand made ,quality tested every step of the way! Worth the $10.00 that is charged. We were amazed at the precision and crafting that is put in the guitars.

“Neat Tour!!”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

Very cool tour of a factory indeed. The handmade craftsmanship that goes into every single guitar was amazing. The tour brings you up close and personal with the process, machinery, and artists that make the guitars. The coolest part was at the end, where the musicians they employ do the final sound and quality check of each guitar.

We got there early - about 30 minutes before the tour started - which gave us time to hang out in the store and drool over some of the beauties. Definitely worth the extra time spent there.
