In about 1989/90 we became the sole importers to the U. We then had a brilliant bunch of years as their sole UK importer. In the early 90's we received 8 of the 100 signed Larry Carltons (I think it was 8) for the whole of the UK. It still has the Valley Arts fret cover over the strings, only moved to take the photos you see.
Martin Miranda stayed with us several times when he visited our store in Aberdeen and we spent many occasions with him, Mike McGuire, Al Carness and the Valley Arts guys in North Hollywood, L. A, Frankfurt and Aberdeen not so exotic!I have been keeping this guitar (along with a Les Paul Gold Top) for my son when he hits 18. He doesn't know about either.
Thats the pedigree of this Valley Arts Larry Carlton Signature. All of which is very easily verified. This may well be the only brand new never ever strummed / played Valley Arts signature guitar anywhere. I would consider another Valley Arts as a trade in. The guitar comes in the original Valley Arts case, which is perfect except for having 1 of the small feet missing.
Or I will send it, fully insured by Secursus, using UPS or Parcelforce or another reliable service, to anywhere in the UK.
