  • From the best selection of material and the intellectual design to the finest craftsmanship, the Valerio guitars have set an industrial standard in Southeast Asia with a competitive price. I have had the opportunity to try and hear them played in concerts. Its powerful and yet well-balanced tone embraces an abundance of colors which grants the musician infinite possibilities to express themselves. It’s definitely an instrument worth owning for both amateurs and professionals.

Not only does Pius Gracioanton, the luthier, know how to design and handcraft beautiful instruments, but also produces instruments with great playability, sound and projection from the finest tone woods. It is a pleasure to play on these instruments which are suitable for beginners to professional concert artists, considering the consistent quality amongst the different models of the production line.

  • Saya merasa dengan adanya produksi gitar handmade Valerio yg wajahnya bagus. Casenya bagus serta suaranya bagus harganya masih terjangkau. Amat membantu banyak murid murid saya yang memimpikan mengganti gitar dari gitar belajar yang seharga 2 juta kebawah. Ke gitar handmade yang harganya mahal mahal.

  • Bagi saya pribadi, gitar klasik yang bagus itu sangat subyektif sekali. Masing2 orang punya standartnya sendiri2. Tapi ada 3 hal yang menurut saya tidak boleh hilang dari Sbh produk gitar klasik. Yaitu : kemerduan suara, konfortable (nyaman) dipakai dan yang jg penting indah di lihat. Ke 3 hal itu saya temukan di Valerio, The Real Art of Guitar

  • Gitar Valerio diproduksi berdasar arahan langsung oleh Pius Gracioanton, yang saya kenal sebagai salah seorang player dan guru gitar klasik terbaik di Indonesia. Tak heran jika berbagai persyaratan yang lazimnya dimiliki gitar klasik yang berkualitas baik ada pada Valerio.
