LEO FENDER WORKED IN HIS UNCLES RADIO REPAIR SHOP IN THE 1940'S.  HE HAD A DESIRE TO BUILD THE FINEST ELECTRIC GUITAR FOR MUSICIANS AND DESIGNED THE FENDER TELECASTER THEN THE STRATOCASTER, AND THEN THE BASSES.  HE WANTED THE FEEL TO BE COMFORTABLE AND THE SOUND TO BE DYNAMIC.  IN THE EARLY 1950'S  HE OPENED THE THE DOORS TO THE FIRST FENDER COMPANY AND FACTORY IN FULLERTON CALIFORNIA.  HIS IDEA BECAME FAMOUS FAST AMONG GUITARISTS AND BASSIST AND HIS FAME SPREAD THROUGH THE 1950'S AND 1960'S.  BUT SOLD THE COMPANY IN 1970 TO THE CBS COMPANY FOR 15 MILLION DOLLARS BECAUSE OF ILLNESS.  BUT THIS WOULD NOT STOP LEO FENDER AND BY 1980, LEO AND LONG TIME PARTNER AND FRIEND, GEORGE FULLERTON BEGAN A NEW PROJECT AND GUITAR LINE CALLED, G&L,  GEORGE AND LEO.  GUITARS BUILT BY LEO.  UP UNTIL THE DAY LEO FENDER DIED IN MARCH OF 1991, HE WORKED IN HIS LAB AND HIS CALLENDER ON THE WALL IS STILL SO DATED.
