The concept of the Little Sister began with the puzzling question of how the early delta bluesmen were able to fascinate a listener with only one guitar and their simple, yet soulful vocal lines. Understanding that these players' fat and throaty guitar tones often came from playing small-body parlor guitars, we decided to uncover the secret of these instruments and embark on a journey back to the Crossroads.

While obsessively collecting all sorts of original guitars from the 1920s and ‘30s, many of which were in poor condition and needed complete restoration, we began to create the special design that would best serve the guitar sound we had become hooked on. We wanted to create an instrument that would be versatile enough for players who use a pick, and for players who are finger-stylists. It needed to be superior in terms of playability, and it had to be gimmick-free. We imagined lightweight, comfortable, and unique. Ultimately, we decided that it should be a small-bodied parlor guitar because these were the instruments that we kept going back to again and again.

The Little Sister finally came to life - Featuring a carved chambered body in genuine mahogany, vintage slotted headstock, Indian rosewood fingerboard, unique soft V neck, original designed hardware and body shape, and the in-house hand wound pickups makes for an instrument that is original and innovative, yet feels very familiar in the avid player’s hands. The Little Sister is available for the first time ever as part of our Standard Build series. Made in Tel-Aviv, Israel according to our unparalleled Private Build standards.

Soft V Neck Shape

Our Soft V neck profile is inspired by a vintage acoustic neck, solid yet comfortable, to retain our trademark parlor feel and facilitate the thumb fretting techniques.

Solid Figured Maple

B&G only uses old-growth, reclaimed, and naturally seasoned wood blanks, hand selected and stored in a controlled environment warehouse. Our Maple tops are no exception, and are available in different quality and figuring classes, as well as in 1 piece option, in place of the standard bookmatched 2-piece top.


The first evolution of the Little Sister guitar is the cutaway version. Featuring the same specs, just a tad leaner in the body depth, it retains the same feel and tone of the Non-Cutaway, and offers an easier access to the upper region of the fingerboard. The Little Sister Cutaway adds a touch of modern versatility to the classic design of the original Little Sister
