If you’ve been reading our blog, or staying up with guitar magazines, like Guitar World, you’ve no doubt seen and heard our new Valentine signature model, which we designed with Maroon 5 guitarist, James Valentine. Now, take a closer look at the process behind the design and development of the 2016 NAMM “Best In Show” award winner.
The Valentine features a slab ash body, two Ernie Ball Music Man designed pickups with 3-way custom wired lever switch, coil tap, modern hardtail bridge with vintage bent steel saddles, 25.5-inch scale, tinted ultra-light satin polyurethane finish neck with 10-inch radius roasted figured with maple fingerboard, 22 stainless steel frets, oversized 4-over- 2 headstock and compensated nut, designed for superior tuning stability.
The guitar also boasts an innovative tapered design that narrows the body of the guitar towards the top of the player, lightening the guitar without sacrificing tone and also improves playability by hugging the player more closely.
