Music lovers can take a tour of the Fender Musical Instruments Corporation factory and see where the famed guitars start their lives.

The new visitor centre at the famed factory means that music fans can feast their eyes on memorabilia from the music instrument manufacturer, including guitars which were owned by some of the most famous musicians of the past century, including Buddy Holly and Kurt Cobain.

There are also a number of interactive displays and replicas of more unusual models, such as Eddie Van Halen's 'Frankenstein' guitar and Dick Dale's surf guitar for people to enjoy.

Last but not least, people can actually take a guided tour of the factory and view the iconic guitars being manufactured.

John Cruz, a master builder at Fender who has worked at the company for over 24 years, said that it is a "great thing" that people can now see what goes on in the factory.

"It was like a candy store," he told InLandSocal.

A number of famed musicians have favoured Fender electric guitars over the years, including Jeff Buckley, Bob Dylan and Jimi Hendrix.

Popular models include the Telecaster, the Stratocaster and the Mustang.
