Maroon 5 guitarist and former JJAMZ (currently known as PHASES) guitarist James Valentine has been working on a lowkey project this past year, according to his official Instagram post.
Earlier today (Sun, Jan 10), James Valentine posted to his official Instagram that he had "been working on a secret project this past year..." with the hashtags "#ErnieBallMusicMan" and "#ValentineGuitar."
James Valentine is set to put out his new model of guitars, currently titled the Valentine Guitar, sometime during the year.
