When Valencia Guitars was first established in Melbourne Australia in 1972, their first instruments reflected their vision. They were to provide student guitarists with instruments that had ease of play and were excellent quality. The guitars were to be great value for money and made to the highest possible manufacturing standards. For more than 50 years these four distinct attributes have remained at the heart of the Valencia culture and Valencia is now the No. 1 selling guitar brand in many countries and, arguably, the world.
