Little Sister
Private Build, Cedar of Lebanon
Little Sister
Private Build,   
   Cedar of Lebanon
The Little Sister with the most acoustic-like tonal quality. We picked up an exclusive selection of old-growth Cedar of Lebanon top, that once bonded with the original chambered Mahogany body of the Little Sister, delivered a unique blend of sweetness, warmth, and delicacy.

All the core elements of the guitar stay true to the original design. The African Mahogany for the one-piece body, Honduran Mahogany for the one-piece neck, Pau Ferro for the fingerboard. The Cedar of Lebanon top adds a rich character, with a clearly detailed fundamental, further defined by a waterfall of harmonics irradiating from the guitar. The Little Sister COL tone is somehow reminiscent of the typical sweetness of a classical guitar, with its clean and uncompressed attack, and unparalleled touch sensitivity. Definitively the most delicate sounding Little Sister, with a lush, blossoming development of each note.
The Little Sister COL offers a unique control layout with two Volume controls and a Master Tone control. This arrangement allows for infinite shades of blending between the two pickups, for the player to find his own voice, as well as to ‘solo' each pickup. The vintage 50's wiring preserves the clarity of the tone. We liked this control layout so much to offer it as an option on all the Little Sisters.

The LS COL looks as unique as it sounds. She is treated with a natural aniline dye, and finished with hand-rubbed shellac coating, for the thinnest, lightest and most resonant paint job possible. Also, the brass hardware is unlacquered and pre-oxidized, for a unique, tasteful patina and an unmistakable vintage feel.
