Proper Copper   
   Limited Edition
Proper Copper   
   Limited Edition
The Little Sister Private Build Proper Copper is an exclusive work of art and love, conceived for the B&G fans and collectors. The most striking feature is obviously the exclusive finish: we have been experimenting with different, unorthodox finishes, looking for something that could really turn some heads, while not being unnecessarily flashy, and that could retain the tonal properties of our traditional painting. When we saw the sparkling, glowing, almost 3D effect of the copper powder mixed with the Nitro lacquer, we knew we had something special, to the point that we went for a full body and neck coating.

The final touch to achieve the unique look comes from the Rose Gold plating of the brass hardware – bridge, tailpiece, and pickups covers. The pickguard and the control plate are also hand engraved with a graceful floral pattern.
Striving for the absolute best, the Little Sister Proper Copper features the traditional one-piece African Mahogany and solid Maple top for her chambered body, and one-piece Honduran Mahogany for the neck. The fingerboard is made in Ziricote, one of the absolute best looking and phenomenal sounding woods available today. A set of finely engraved Waverly tuners graces the headstock.

The Little Sister Proper Copper is available with your choice of P90s or Kikbuckers, in Cutaway or Non-Cutaway version, in a very limited run of 25 guitars only. Each Little Sister Proper Copper carries an engraved plate on the back side, with the serial number.
