B&G Little Sister Proper Copper Limited Edition Model Arrives

We announced a few months ago that B&G Guitars were building a limited edition batch of their Little Sister Private Build, named ‘Proper Copper’, which combines the award-winning Little Sister design with a unique finish featuring copper dust.

The Proper Copper model also features a special engraved pick guard and a rear plate that commemorates the limited edition model. B&G have built just 25 Proper Copper models, and we have secured number 13, which we are delighted to say has just announced in our showroom!
This guitar is a magnificent instrument, expertly handmade and exquisitely finished. It feels every bit the critically acclaimed Private Build Little Sister and then some. A flawless finish, and B&G's handwound P90s provide an awe-inspiring playing experience.
