Private Build, Koa
Some players look for an elegant, even luxurious appearance, where the sheer beauty of the exotic woods is key. The Step Sister Koa model is designed for these players. She will offer the exceptional B&G tone and playability, but will also shine for the superior class wood selection and for some exclusive finishing touches.
For not to shadow such beauty in the guitar`s wood selection, the Step Sister PB Koa is only available in natural Nitro finish.
As with all the Step Sister, she can be ordered with either P90, Kikbuckers or Humbuckers pickups. The proprietary brass hardware is either lacquered, to preserve its shine, or nickel-plated as per your choice.
