Day 39, Johnny Cash's Boots

I did not know that Fender was a California Company. They started in Fullerton, but they are in their second factory here in the Inland Empire. They are in Corona. Also in Corona is the Fender Museum of Music and the Arts. Though not officially a Fender organization, Fender apparently supports the non profit group with money and instruments. The museum offers free and low cost music instruction for youth. It also has an exhibit that every guitar slinger should love, with occasional visiting exhibits. Right now they have items from the collection of Bill Miller, one of Johnny's long time friends.

These custom made rockabilly boots are the one of the first things that Johnny bought with his first royalty check from Sun Records. Johnny Designed them and they were the first pair of many custom made boots that he owned.

I will post the other shots from the Johnny Cash exhibit tomorrow and then I will go find the Fender Factory and get you a shot. If you want to visit the Museum, I have added their link in the links section.

Thanks for looking.
