YouTube Preview Image

Fantastic Fender factory tour footage, filmed in 1959 by Forrest White. Edited by Ross Lenenski of Denison University.

Music by Russell “Daemonzed” Eldridge. Russell’s Stratocaster guitar is from the American Deluxe Series made at the Corona Plant (Fender), USA in the Year 2000.

Leo Fender is in the second shot. No CNC machines back then, everything was done by hand. It is amazing to realize that every guitar made that year is now worth a small fortune.
