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.
B&G now offer three pickup options in their Private Builds, all hand-wound; P90s, humbuckers and now B&G’s new Kikbuckers, designed by B&G co-founder Yotam ‘Kiki’ Goldstein, which sound like traditional single coil pickups but feature hum cancellation for a better playing experience.
All pickup options feature ‘50s style wiring, master volume and master tone controls and a three-way pickup selector switch. Every Private Build includes B&G’s fitted hard shell case and a certificate of authenticity.
