With the introduction of Valley Arts, Gibson has re-created the legendary custom guitar line and “pro shop” guitar store whose client list was once a who’s who of Los Angeles guitarists, from Larry Carlton to Lee Ritenour to Tommy Tedesco. The new Valley Arts facility, which opened in November 2002 in Nashville with the dropping of a grand piano from a helicopter, includes a full-line guitar store, a guitar repair service and a manufacturing facility, just like the original business. Even the original owners, Mike McGuire and Al Carness, are on hand – McGuire as operations manager of Gibson’s Custom division and Carness as Valley Arts product specialist – to ensure that the spirit of Valley Arts carries on.
Valley Arts had its origins in a music store owned by guitar teacher Duke Miller, whose students included McGuire and Carness. “Duke was more than a teacher,” McGuire said “He was more like a mentor, and he really nursed me along through the years. He got me my first teaching job at a store in Pacoima, California, called Music World. I was 15 at the time. Eventually I started teaching and working for Duke at his place, and at that time we started a little store, Duke Miller’s Guitar Center in North Hollywood.”

The dusky Cremona brown sunburst, introduced on the top-of-the-line Style 5 models in 1922, has evolved into today’s Vintage Sunburst. The deep cherry stain and cherry sunburst finishes that turned heads in the ’50s live on as Heritage Cherry and Heritage Cherry Sunburst. The warm aura of a vintage guitar is embodied in an Antique Natural or Honey Burst finish. New models continue to add new finishes to the Gibson tradition.Read More
