It is probably only worth about a hundred bucks but I'll give you 150 for it .
Just kidding !!! I have no idea , but I've got 2 Carlton instructional DVDs and he is playing that guitar in the second one . I thought it was cool to see him play something besides his ES335 and still get a great tone . I would search the web with the model # , or if you you have a login for ebay you can do an advanced search and look at items that bidding has ended on , you might find something there .

Hey! I'll give you $ 175.00. I saw him play one of those once at a show. It sound pretty good.

Someone asked Larry about his Valley Arts guitars at his master class in London on Wednesday night.
The question was something like "So, Larry, do you still play the Valley Arts guitars?"

His response was "I don't even know where they are anymore.... (pause)... I have people that bury things for me... in the desert..."
