Hey Billy, you're right up my alley. Eat your heart out Jeff. I once had a Valley Arts Custom Ash-bodied Tele, but I got nail polish on it.

Sounds like you have an 80's Custom Pro, or as you say California Pro. The real thing.

Valley Arts originally began as a retail store in N. Hollywood during 1967. They progressed into manufacturing there between 1979 - 93. In 1992, Samick was involved in a joint venture with VA, and in June 1993 Samick acquired the company entirely, relocating to the City of Industry, California.

Valley arts guitar

I just acquired a red bodied valley the serial number is va02761 can you tell me about the year it was made? I bought it at a auction for a little over 500.00 with the original hard case. It has the style of the valley pro and was made in the USA. It's got the valley arts logo on the top of the head. I do not know much about guitars I bought it for my 14 year old daughter who wants to learn how to play. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Bob

Valley Arts Guitar

Hello

I have a Valley Arts California Pro
Body Neck Serial #VA 03565.
It doesn't´t say Samik anywhere.
Anyone knows the original year?

Thanks

VA guitar date

Hi Jose,
from memory Samick bought into Valley Arts after 1992, and some guitars were built from remaining parts that were undamaged by the fire.However the model named " California Pro " was not introduced until a few years later. So
in fact the guitar you own is a Samick produced model from around 1994/95 hope this helps

best regards
Bill Smith

Valley arts custom pro bass

Hey guys I was wondering if any of you could help me out. I recently picked up a valley arts custom pro bass and I'm trying to find more information about it. The thing is the serial number is SVA01e4. Now that indicates to me right away that it could be a sammick valley arts, however the head stock seems genuine and it has the emg pick ups with the piano styled bridge that allows sound to resonate for probably over a minute. If anybody could help me out I'd appreciate it.

Thanks

Help with VA Guitar

Hi,

I have a Valley Arts Custom Pro guitar (USA). The serial is 'VA02114' and is hard to read since the engraving is the natural color of the wood. Their is a (gold?) signature under the serial number on the back of the headstock. The guitar is surprisingly near mint condition. Some of the specs are:

Quilt top, Birdseye Neck, gotoh tuners, (not sure about the pups) but there are 3 single coil. Does this sound like a pre-Samick VA guitar?

Thank you,

Mark

Valley Arts CAL 01279

Hey Guys
I'm looking at what appears to be a Valley Arts Guitar, CAL 01279. The neck has "Valley Arts" with "Studio City, CA" written on it and at the end "California Pro" and "Custom Shop" written in a circle logo at the end of the headstock. I can't seem to find a match on the numbers on the main websites as they all start with "VA". Anyone heard of this?
Thanks

Serial starting with CAL

Hey Doug, I have a similar question, I just bought CAL 01263 Cal Pro. It was purchased new in Aug of 1995. I am sumwut curious too. This is not from the glory days of "VA" I gather, But I am curious if this was a Gibson stepchild
or a "dreaded" Simick. I need to replace somehardware as well and cud use all the info I could get. So pass anything you get on to me please. Saludos, from La Paz, Mex
