New B&G Private Build Guitars Arrive

We have just received three gorgeous new B&G Private Build models that encapsulate the variety and stunning quality that B&G Guitars hand-build in their workshop at their headquarters in Tel-Aviv, Israel.

The Little Sister Private Build is the original Little Sister, and the three new guitars we've received all feature the award-winning Little Sister design.

B&G Little Sister Private Build Electric Guitar, Cutaway, Humbuckers, Cherry Burst - £4,050

The B&G Little Sister Private Build is the original B&G Guitar, featuring the award-winning Little Sister design, handbuilt by B&G in their workshop in Tel-Aviv, Israel.

The B&G Little Sister Private Build features a one-piece African Mahogany back with a hand-picked Figured Maple top. The body has a thickness of 1.75” on the cutaway version, and 1.96” on the non-cutaway.

The Honduran Mahogany neck features B&G’s soft ‘V’ profile and is topped by a Pau Ferro fretboard with a neck to body join at the 14th fret to provide an intimate playing experience.

All of B&G’s Private Build models now feature the B&G Solid Brass ABR bridge as standard, as well as the company’s signature Little Sister solid brass tailpiece.
