The ValcoCaster is a shape I co-designed during my time at Daddy Mojo Stringed Instruments. Now dubbed the “Pinto”. As a homage to my roots, I will be releasing a limited series of 5 (FIVE) ValcoCasters. With the exception of two prototypes, these will be the only instruments in that shape that will leave my shop.
