Little Sister
Private Build, All Mahogany
Little Sister
Private Build,   
   All Mahogany
The Little Sister is a very versatile sonic palette. Her sensitivity and responsiveness to each different player`s touch are responsible for her voice, as unique as every player is. The highly resonant chambered body of the Little Sister influences the string vibration, changing the harmonic content and balance sensibly. Therefore, changing the wood top changes the tone of the guitar, shifting it in different directions, depending on the selected timber.

The All Mahogany version shares most of the common characteristics of the original Little Sister design: one-piece air-dried, chambered African Mahogany body, one-piece Honduran Mahogany neck, with a single bar, single action truss rod, Pau Ferro fingerboard, slotted headstock, and the proprietary B&G solid brass hardware. The key difference is the wood top, made in African Mahogany.
Mahogany topped guitars deliver a very focused tone, with a vocal midrange quality and a rounded, sweetened top end. The fundamental tone is pronounced, while the harmonic spectrum is slightly in the background. The slightly dryer tone shines in translating the dynamics of the playing style. If played aggressively, the Little Sister All Mahogany is also capable of a raunchier "in your face" attitude.

The hand-wound, unpotted P90 pickups are just perfect for the Little Sister All Mahogany, with their balance between warmness and raw, throaty grit, and unmatched airy quality. The hum-canceling Kikbuckers deliver a very similar tone, slightly more solid and focused.

The unlacquered, lightly aged brass hardware – bridge, tailpiece, back cover and pickups covers – contributes to creating a vintage-inspired vibe, further enhanced by the matte Open-Pore Nitro finish.
