Thank you, Rutabegorz for the shout! We open two new Fender exhibits this Saturday!!

🎸Here we have Gary Gray next to the mural of Leo Fender. Gary is Leo’s nephew (notice the matching pocket protctor) and a long time guest who always brings a smile to us when he visits.
The Fullerton Museum currently has a Fender exhibit, so try and make it there and stop by Rutas Fullerton for a bite too!
