pre-Gibson, pre-Samick Valley Arts Guitars

Hello and welcome. This is the first website dedicated to pre-Gibson, pre-Samick Valley Arts Guitars. Again, I need to get this out of the way to clear up any confusion: this site is dedicated to pre-Gibson, pre-Samick Valley Arts Guitars. So when I say 'VA's', 'Valley Arts', etc. it's a given I mean pre-Gibson, pre-Samick Valley Arts Guitars unless otherwise stated. Nothing against Gibson or Samick, I just prefer vintage Valley Arts prior to being sold completely to Samick in 1993 and the trademark being sold to Gibson most recently. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
