The Twelfth Fret ~ Since 1977 ~

❌SOLD❌ Valley Arts Brent Mason Signature Custom Pro Grey, 2005


Instrument Categories: , , ,

The Valley Arts Brent Mason Signature Custom Pro is based on Mason’s 1968 Fender Telecaster, modified over the years to meet the requirements of a top session player. Introduced in 2004, the Brent Mason model was built for only a few years, after Valley Arts had been purchased by Gibson with a small retail and construction space in Nashville. However, by 2006 that shop closed and in 2012 Mike McGuire, who had founded Valley Arts in 1975 and ultimately ran Gibson Custom, retired.

There are a few things that a session player demands from their main guitar. The instrument must have rock-solid reliability, tune well, and it must be extremely versatile. The Valley Arts Brent Mason Signature Custom Pro does all these things. The basic instrument design has proven itself for half a century and the addition of a six-saddle bridge and Sperzel locking tuners adds to the great tuneability. Versatility comes from the three pickups – a Gibson mini-humbucker in the neck, and a pair of Seymour Duncans – a Hot Stack in the middle and a Vintage Lead Stack at the bridge.

This fairly rare and very usable Valley Arts Brent Mason Custom Pro plays quite well and is in overall good condition with only minor wear.

The original rectangular hard shell case is included.
