The story of the Little Sister® guitar began from the puzzling question of how the early delta bluesmen were able to fascinate a listener with only one guitar and their simple, yet soulful vocal lines.

Understanding that these players fat and throaty guitar tone often came from playing small body Parlor guitars, made us decide to uncover the secret of these instruments and embark on a journey back to the crossroads. While obsessively collecting all sorts of original guitars from the 1920s and ‘30s, that many times were in poor condition and needed a complete restoration, we began to create the special design that would best approach the guitar sound we had become hooked on.
We wanted to create an instrument that would be versatile enough for players who use a pick, and for players who are finger stylists. It needed to be superior in terms of playability, and it had to be gimmick free. It had to be lightweight, comfortable and unique; Ultimately, we decided that it should be a small body parlor guitar because these were the instruments that we kept playing again and again.

The Little Sister Private Build production is limited to 30 guitars per month to ensure careful attention to detail and accuracy in every guitar.

And if she looks like a jewel it's because she was designed by jewelry artist David Weizman who also handcrafts the brass hardware.
