I've purchased my VA custom pro about six years ago. The seller used to work for the only guitar-importer of Valley Arts in Holland. Now, it's very hard to get a Valley Arts in Holland so I was very lucky to come across one. The guitar has Seymour Duncan pickups and a Kahler/Valley arts bridge. It's all gold hardware. I've changed nothing so I think everything is original. I won't sell the guitar. The guitar plays great and looks awesome. I'll keep it forever I think.
