Footage Of Fender Factory Taken in 1959

The workers in action at Fullerton   31-Jan-11

Back in 2009 we brought you this footage of the Corona Fender factory in California.

Now, thanks to some restoration by CinePost, footage of the Fullerton factory is now up on YouTube for the public to see.

The video was shot by Forrest White in 1959, and shows the factory workers crafting the guitars by hand, well before the use of CNCs.

Spot Leo Fender in the second shot.
