Valenti Guitars is based in Italy and run by experienced luthier Luigi Valenti.
Valenti Guitars aims to create instruments that are pieces of art by themselves. Where nothing but aesthetic perfection is allowed, Valenti Guitars are constructed to be an extension of the musician’s imagination and skills, thanks to uncompromising sound and playability.
Personally selected tonewoods with more than 10 years drying process, top quality hardware and handwound pickups made specifically for each instrument, are the ingredients that you’ll find on every Valenti guitar.
The customer is then involved in every step of the designing process, allowing maximum freedom of choice between standard and custom options for each model, in order to create a bespoke instrument every time.
Valenti is without a doubt one of the best luthiers with whom I got in touch with! Luigi ''winks'' to the future, without forgetting past and present. HIs instruments have personality, which becomes pure inspiration and creativity.
Luigi is extremely talented when it comes to building guitars/pickups... I miss seeing him on the Crimson Guitars channel...
Stunning, professional and innovative. The interaction with Luigi is everything a musician, professional or not, needs. The bass he built is a masterpiece under every point of view: quality, sound and playability.
Valenti guitars was the number one choice when I thought I should get a custom bass. If the guitars look great at first sight, you should see how they sound!! Luigi is a professionally meticulous guy who will meet all of your guitar/bass requirements. Deserves all the best he may get!!
The union between creativity and passion for music make Luigi an assurance in the field of instruments manufacturing and ValentiGuitar a winning choice. Works perfectly done, complex operations, restoration operations and, above all, products of his mind are protagonists in Luigi's lab. Definitely the choice I would always do.

An idea for a custom instrument once popped into my mind, and the first person who I thought was right for the job was Luigi Valenti. We sat down at a table and carefully planned everything about the instrument, even the smallest detail: from the shape to the woods, from the mechanics’ colour to the inlay. The thing about Valenti Guitars’ custom shop is that you really are part of the build, since Luigi updates you during the whole process, from the tonewoods’ selection up until the last step: the colouring. He helps you to take that idea you had and makes it real and concrete. Even if you are not too familiar with tonewoods or anything else, don’t be afraid to ask, you’ll be guided as the build goes on. Furthermore, nothing can match the emotion you will feel once that one idea you had during that lazy sunday afternoon will come to life and be in your hands, playing and screaming like a banshee, both thanks to the very careful tonewoods selection and the marvellous handwired Valenti Pickups, made specifically for each instrument he makes. So, do you want your idea to come to life? Hit Valenti Guitars up and you want regret it. Make your dream instrument come true.
