The Captain and Danish Pete Visit Fender USA

| Comments

Lee “The Captain” Anderton of Andertons Music Co. & Peter “Danish Pete” Honoré take a trip over to Corona, California to have a guided tour of Fender’s famous USA guitar factory!

This is an older video - but is much more detailed than yesterday’s Popular Mechanics video and shows off the attention to detail at the USA factory. I have never been to the Fender factory, but someday when I go - I will be more of a fan boy then these two are. If that is possbile.

It literally blows my mind how every component is built in house, and some of it is still being manufactured with the same machines and techniques as was done in the 1950s. If it isn’t broke don’t fix it! Leo would be proud.
