Fender Acoustic Custom Shop Tour

Here is a very cool quick video tour of Fender's Acoustic Custom Shop facility in New Hartford Connecticut.

The video shows the process on which their high-end custom shop acoustic guitars are being made.

When it comes to acoustic guitars, Fender's line are mostly outsourced affordable units which target only the low to mid priced acoustic market. This year, Fender decides to enter the realm of hand-made acoustics under the direction of Luthier Ren Ferguson.

This guitar workshop currently produces three different series of guitars. The Pro Custom Series offers limited edition instruments based on traditional acoustic designs, and the acoustic with Fender headstock design that came from the '60s. The Collector Custom Series are acoustics with artistic graphics on the body. Finally, the Master Designed Series is their flagship line of custom acoustics, these are highly limited production instruments that feature exotic wood and top of the line craftsmanship.

On this video, we are given a glimpse of how the custom instruments are built, along with the type of materials used. Enjoy!
