Have you seen this?
It gets posted quite often, but I still watch it every time
Its nice to have some video record of the people and tools.
Thanks for posting that, seen it once before. Well worth a repeat viewing. Love those sunburst Strats. And George Fullerton's dad cutting bodies, pretty cool.
Here's the longer version....enjoy. Hard to find it.
I found my dream job: Shirtless Guitar Tester in the Fender factory.
Never seen the full version before Banana. Very nice.
I hear that Fender is going after a guy in Middle TN. He seems to be making more money on their knockoffs than they are these days.LOL
According to Fender's claim, he was using their headstock and logo.
Please take this to another part of the forum if you want to discuss this more. This issue is not about vintage Telecasters.
Hate to say it, when you act like a total jerk it comes back to haunt you and that guy they are suing was definitely in that category.
And, don't kid yourself it was because he was making "more money". Go visit the Fender factory. See how many guitars are going out the door in a day. Kelton couldn't sell that many in 5 years.
So that's where that chest pubes on my vintage 59 Strat came from...
Great stuff. Can you publish the link to this longer version please?
Interesting to look at the old factory. Just as I imagined it, very casual, everything everywhere and no O.H.& S. A modern Factory Inspector would have a heart attack, no eye protection, hearing protection, exclusion zones, etc.
There is an old joke that you could tell the number of years a bandsaw operator had been working by the number of lost fingers, one gone for every two years worked.
