When working on the website I contacted many instrument manufacturers and got photos from their facilities and other interesting information. Ever since I've wanted to visit a guitar manufacturer, but I never had the opportunity. I sort of thought they were all somewhere else. Like Memphis, or California.
The other day I wanted to contact Dean Guitars and looked for their e-mail address on their website. I had to read their physical address three times to believe my eyes - they're located in Tampa, just an hour away from me. And, they give factory tours!
I've booked myself on a tour Thursday next week. To make things even better, they allow cameras! I'm super excited! =D
