   Sister
The Step Sister is the mean girl in the family. Based on the Little Sister design, it features a longer neck with 22 frets, a fret-16 neck joint, and a heel that is designed for fast and easy access all the way up to the 22nd fret. You can choose between the classic B&G slotted headstock or a solid headstock with Ziricote or maple veneer.

The Step Sister is also available in a solid body version, to make mean even meaner, and with ultra-light mahogany the solid body isn't heavier than the chambered version at all.
Just like with the Little Sister, the custom hardware is made of solid brass, with both nickel-plated and lacquered as finish options.

Everything else, including the wood types and different finish options, is just the same as the classic Little Sister.
