About Valencia Guitars

Established 1972

When Valencia Guitars was first established in Melbourne Australia in 1972, our first instruments reflected our 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 four decades these four distinct attributes have remained at the heart of the Valencia culture.

Valencia is now the No. 1 selling guitar brand in many countries and, arguably, the world. Thousands of music stores around the world stock Valencia Guitars as their main classical guitar line. These guitar experts do this because Valencia guitars represent the very best value for money on the market! It’s for this reason alone that millions of guitarists around the world have started their musical journeys on a Valencia guitar.

Valencia guitars are expertly crafted in three Southern China factories and in our own, purpose-built manufacturing plant in Surabaya, Indonesia, under the close supervision of a team of fully qualified guitar technicians employed exclusively by Valencia.
