To visit Guitar factory is new experience. Observe the steps in preparing the wood, colouring till the end to show many wonderful guitars with different sizes and colours. Chance to buy while while listening to experts playing nice music.

It was nice to see a wide array of guitars. From small to big ones. From the simple to the more intricately designed ones But, this is not for those hunting for a cheap, quality guitar to buy. Interesting though..
