sure looks like a tedious job of manufacturing. the amount of processes a guitar has to go through before becoming ready has probably not been literally counted. And what's a Vox amp doing there? :-))

Hey, they've gotta test 'em to make sure they work with different amps...

I was disappointed a couple of years ago when I was in Anaheim for a few days, and learned that Rickenbacker doesn't offer factory tours. I've been lucky enough to tour the Collings factory in Austin twice--once at their old location, and once at the current location. It always fascinates me how much work goes into manufacturing guitars, regardless of the brand!

Thanks RicandVox. You're a luck guy getting a "tour". Reminds me of the times I "toured" around the Hoefner factory.

Best.
