Rare look inside Fender Guitar Factory ca. 1959

This restored 8mm footage from the Fender factory in Fullerton, California (ca. 1959) is the only known footage of the original Fender manufacturing facility during its golden age.

Nearly all of the work back then was done by hand by Mexican-Americans like Tadeo Gomez, Gloria Fuentes and Abigail Ybarra, whose signatures inside pickup bases/cavities and on necks help to date and evaluate highly sought after Pre-CBS models.
