Info on Valley Arts

A store close by has a Strat style Valley Arts guitar. It played well, but I do not know much about them. I did not see a model or serial number and it has Godin pick-ups, two singles and a humbucker. Their website was not much help. I'm just looking for information on these guitars. Thanks, Chris

Re: Info on Valley Arts

Valley Arts was a company that made top of the line guitars for folks like Steve Lukather and Larry Carlton. they were bought out by Samick at one point, who made some great guitars under that name, but the caché wasn't there anymore. I think Gibson owns them now. You might want to try to figure out in what era the guitar was made -- it could be a steal.

Re: Info on Valley Arts

I went back and looked at this guitar again. I did find the serial number. It is an California Pro and it is USA made. It has gold hardware, but it has Godin pick-ups. I think the pick-ups have been changed. This guitar is in really good shape, no dings or rash. The shop owner said that he wants $250.00 for it. He said if he does not sell it soon he is going to part it and put it on the bay.

I think I will pass on it, I just don't need another strat type guitar.

Think they were taken over by Samick so anything pre Samick would be worth buying.
