Little Sister Non-Cutaway - KikbuckersOverview
Private Build Series
The story of the Little Sister began with the puzzling question of how the early delta bluesmen fascinated a listener with a guitar and their simple, yet soulful vocal lines.
We collected samples from the 1920s and 30s, many of which were in poor condition and needed complete restoration, and began to create the unique design that would best serve the guitar sound we became hooked on. And so the Little Sister was born.
The original design & finish of the very first Little Sister in the non-cutaway version. It has the same features as the first B&G guitar. This Little Sister model brings out exactly what our founding luthiers had in mind. After years of research, Kiki & Eliran created this magnificent blues machine.
