Details

The B&G Caletta Private Build is B&G Guitars’ first acoustic guitar design, handbuilt in Tel-Aviv, Israel.

Very much taking its influence from the ‘electric parlour’ shape of the B&G Little Sister, the Caletta is a small-bodied acoustic guitar with the tonal qualities of a vintage instrument in a modern day design.

The Caletta comes in a variety of tonal options. The Old Growth Sitka Spruce or Genuine Mahogany tops have been air dried for over twenty years, and are braced with a relatively closed traditional Alpine Spruce X-brace pattern allowing for a punchy, yet full-bodied sound. This, combined with the warmth and musical tone of the 12th fret neck-to-body joint, and a perfectly tuned sound hole, results in a very balanced instrument.

There are also a number of options available for the Caletta’s back and sides. Choose from Mahogany, Pau Ferro, Ziricote or Koa, all of which have their own unique tonal characteristics.

Just like B&G’s electric guitar models, the Caletta is available with a variety of finish options. Choose from a natural finish, Tobacco Burst, Honey Burst or Vintage Amber. All perfectly compliment the vintage aesthetic of these gorgeous guitars.

Each guitar includes a B&G hardshell premium Caletta case and comes with B&G’s 10-day money-back guarantee.
