Building Guitars, Making History: Leo Fender Stories
From modest beginnings at his Fullerton radio repair shop, Leo Fender presided over what became the largest musical instrument empire in the world. His electric guitars, amplifiers, and keyboards set the standard for the industry. His ideas formed the basis for the almost limitless possibilities of sound in music that today most people take for granted.
Thousands of people have worked for Fender at factories, storefronts and offices over the years, producing top quality instruments with the Fender name. This exhibit tells some of those stories from the boots on the ground, Leo's many employees who toiled to make musical dreams come true.
