I decided to take a trip down to Corona, California the other day and go on the factory tour. It was pretty amazing to see how they build all those guitars. We went from where the raw blocks of wood were being cut all the way through the setting up of the instruments. It took about an hour and a half but I wish it was longer. At the very end we finished at the Custom Shop. They can even design you your own guitar and build it to your specs for a fee. I have linked some pictures below.

Thanx for sharing those, def enjoyed them.

So different to see the factory now compared to those clips from the '50's where guys were sticking their hands into huge bandsaws with no guards, no dust removal system, no dust masks. A different world.

Would love to see that myself sometime.
