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 Highly 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’ Goldshtein, 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.
This guitar comes to us in excellent condition, with its original hard shell case and certificate of authenticity. This particular model features an upgraded highly figured Maple top and a matching headplate.
