Fender factory hits 25

Great deals on musical instruments
Many music fans will have played instruments made by them – and some may never have wondered where they were produced.

However, apparently in excess of 1,000 people took part in a celebration of a recent Fender Musical Instruments Corporation milestone linked to this consideration.

The Corporation's Mexican factory, situated in Ensenada, marked its 25th birthday earlier this month.

"We are very proud to have reached such a significant milestone," commented Fender Musical Instruments Corporation's Sergio Villanueva.

"The level of craftsmanship produced in this factory is a testament to its success," he also said.

The anniversary took place July 20th and featured the likes of Intocable and Escuelita Fender playing. Among the many guests were staff from the factory and dignitaries from the local area.

Among the Fender electric guitars stocked by Gear4music are models in the Stratocaster and Telecaster lines.

Electric guitars recently featured in the Arctic Monkeys performance at the Olympics opening ceremony.
