Understanding that these players' fat and throaty guitar tones often came from playing small-body parlor guitars, we decided 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, many of which were in poor condition and needed complete restoration, we began to create the special design that would best serve the guitar sound we had become hooked on.
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 Weizmann, who also handcrafts the brass hardware.
