OK, I gave my f'n baby to this old dust monger and he single handedly ruined my life. I hate him. I thought of not writing this review out of feeling bad for him but f it. We need what we pay for. He blows and is too old to do anything. If I am the only person in this town who has the balls to write the truth about this old washed up retard then f this town and all the morons in it.. An honest review like this would've saved my guitar but you are all such a bunch of p#^%#ssys that I was not lucky enough to have the real info about him to avoid this tragedy. Everyone step up and stop being pus#@sys. Serious;y you bunch of a%^$#@sshgoles only 3 f'n rreviews????? Pu^%$#ssies!!!!! All of you.

I asked him to set my intonation and put a new volume knob in and he put a third knob in without asking me, re-wired the guitar so it buzzes like a f''n bee ALL THE TIME IN ANY SETTING. The good reviews that these previous stupid people put up are the reason I trusted him. Do not go to him unless you want have an f'n retarded instrument to go home and want to hang yourself with. That's all.

I first met Art back in the early-mid 80s when he set up a genuine "EVH Frankenstrat" that I came by as a basketcase. He turned it into my prized possesion and favorite player until it was stolen. He also did a replacement bridge on my Alvarez Yairi doubleneck acoustic that you couldn't tell wasn't original to it.

Art is THE master! We spoke for far longer than he needed to and was just a wonderful guy. He shared stories of all the guys he had done work for and had nice things to say about everyone, from Clapton, Gene Simmons, Charro... I wish I could have recorded it cause he IS music history!

I Haven't been there in years, but I think of him all the time. The man should have his own STAR on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Love you Art! Hope you keep it going forever!!!

One of the few honest guitar makers left in America. Unlike his more expensive counter parts ,Valdez makes a Flamenco guitar to die for. It has the most unmistakable Flamenco sound that I have ever heard. Some of them sound like old Santos Hernandez guitars. The prices for the hand made Valdez guitars are also reasonable unlike other makers. I now own the Federico Flamenco model, and it was a good deal. If he likes you, you can make a deal with him. If he doesn't like you he won't even sell you one, no matter how much you offer. Don't take my word. See for yourself. You will have to ask him to see the good stuff from the back
