Two legendary Southern California brands, guitar manufacturer Fender Musical Instruments Corp. and the Ayres Hotels of Southern California, have joined forces on the remarkable "Ayres-caster," a Stratocaster emblazoned with the Ayres Hotels of Southern California logo. The Fender Stratocaster is an electric guitar designed in 1954 and is the most popular electric guitar on the market. This particular "Ayres-caster" guitar was created to celebrate the long standing relationship between Fender and Ayres Suites Corona West (both located in Corona, CA) as well as to excite interest in the recently opened Fender Visitor Center.
Opened in fall of 2011, the Fender Visitor Center is comprised of over 8600 square feet of musical exhibits featuring hundreds of instruments, amps, photos, historical artifacts, interactive displays, and more that give guests from around the world a fascinating, educational, and unforgettable first-hand look at the entire Fender story – from 1946-today. The building also features a design center where a visitor can design his or her own personal guitar and have it made and shipped directly to them from the factory. A twice daily factory tour also gives visitors insight into the craftsmanship that is needed to create these stunning Fender instruments.
The Ayres Suites Corona West is located 2 miles from the Fender Visitor Center and offers 167 gorgeous, European-inspired guestrooms. Guests attending events at the center, such as the Fernando Jones Blues Camp and Summer Jam, or simply visiting the area will be treated to deluxe accommodations that include a complimentary full American breakfast as well as complimentary parking and WiFi. The amazing, custom made Fender "Ayres-caster" guitar will be available for viewing in the inviting lobby.
