Fender Mexico Factory Tour 3 - April 2001 photos of Fender Ensenada.  Follow the link labeled "Guitar Manufacturing" at the bottom of this page to continue the tour.  Notice any changes between 2001 and 2003?  There is at least one fairly major change!  Also see a photo of pickup crafter Abigail Ybarra who usually works on USA pickups.  We love Abigail!  Her scatter-wind-by-hand technique gave Fender's vintage instruments unique tone that custom pickup makers of today strive to emulate!
