Fender Guitars Visitor Center

The Fender Visitor Center has closed for now. We love having a place for our customers to visit and tour our facility, and we thank everyone who has come to experience the Visitor Center and Fender factory tour with us. We plan to reopen as soon as we create a new Fender Experience.

Fender Guitar Factory Tour

An incredible tour of the inside of the Fender guitar factory. This location has been open since 1998 (they started out in Fullerton, CA) and manufactures about 400 guitars a day. Tours are open to the public and are about an hour long. A guide leads groups through the factory and explains step by step how guitars are manufactured. It is fascinating to see guitars start out as simple blocks of wood and slowly become musical instruments.
