    Default Took the Fender Factory tour: saw lots of wolfgangs

    This may be of interest to you VH fans and players... I've been wanting to take a tour of the Fender factory since I heard about it last year. I live about an hour away, and finally took a day off work to get over there.

    The visitors center is fantastic! You can plug-in and play almost every guitar they have. The tour is awesome, if a bit too fast. I was snapping pics like crazy trying to get it all in. It's amazing how much hand work still gets put into all those guitars even with all the CNC machines around.

    Wolfgangs were everywhere. I kinda always thought of them as a niche guitar, but it's looks like they much more mainstream than I thought. The Wolfgang I played in the visitors center was the best guitar I played there that day.

    If you are in SoCal, Go! If you are planning to come here, you definitely need make the tour part of you trip.


    I've posted some pictures if anyone wants to take a gander.

    Cool pics!

    I'm planning my honeymoon right now and it may include a few days in LA. This would be awesome to do.

    It looks like the cost was $10/person? How long was the tour? Did you have to make a reservation? Was there a wait for it?
