B&G Guitars Little Sister Crossroads
Cutaway Model with P-90 Pickups
Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar!
Following the tremendous success and recognition of the original Private Build Little Sister, B&G set out to create a new version of the guitar that would be truly accessible to all players. With careful work and determination, they developed the Crossroads series – a production variant of the Little Sister which offers classic B&G looks and construction at a more affordable price point. While some specs had to change, they did not compromise on their quest for tone.
The Little Sister Crossroads series are built from high quality tone-woods including African Mahogany for body and neck, Katalox for the fingerboard, and a solid Maple top. Solid brass hardware and a high-gloss finish help maintain the look, resonance and tonal qualities of the original Little Sister.
In order to provide the best possible value, Crossroads series production has been streamlined to include a limited selection of colors and options. However, for the most discerning players, Crossroads pickups, electronic harness, and bridge can all be upgraded to Private Build parts.
The Little Sister Crossroads is a gorgeous, inspirational and enchanting instrument.
ABOUT THE PICKUPS
Both P90 and Humbucker equipped variants of the Little Sister Crossroads offer a rich and balanced tone modeled after their Private Build siblings. For maximum performance and versatility, they are wax-potted to eliminate unwanted squeal and feedback from higher gain settings. While they have are unmistakably vintage-inspired pickups, they do have enough oomph to push your amplifier's front end, producing the just right amount of top end harmonic content.
Optional B&G Private Build pickups are wound by hand and have been optimized to deliver true, vintage-sounding tone. To achieve that additional feel of airy openness, and sensitivity to the acoustic tone, they are not wax-potted by default, but can be ordered with a light potting. They are superb for clean, jazzy/bluesy crunch and mid-gain picking.
The P90 is B&G’s seminal design, constructed with Alnico V magnets for a rich tone, embodied in a translucent halo of upper harmonics, and fat, warm bass. Their humbuckers are voiced similar to PAFs with the unmistakable cutting midrange and clear, sweet, trebles. The Kickbucker is another original pickup from B&G for players who love the P90 sound. Kickbuckers feature a stacked bobbin design for hum-cancellation, and deliver a stronger, focused, and powerful tone - all while retaining the typical sound, look and size of a standard P90.
