The Little Sister Crossroads Cutaway Humbucker
***image is representative ’til I can update with actual product (w/o pickguard!)***
Ever since the tremendous success and recognition of the Little Sister®, we wanted to create a new version of the guitar that could continue to inspire and be accessible to all players outside of our Private Build line. With careful work and determination we started developing the Crossroads line, an Asia-manufactured variant of the Little Sister that provides classic B&G looks and construction at a more affordable cost.
While some specs had to change, we did not compromise on our quest for tone. The Little Sister Crossroads (cutaway and non-cutaway) needed to be built out of quality tone-woods – African Mahogany body and neck, Indian Rosewood fingerboard and solid Maple top. In order to keep the wood alive and resonant we chose the thinnest modern finish available – UV. Factory-made solid brass hardware made it possible to maintain the familiar look and similar tonal qualities to our Little Sister.
In order to provide our customers the best value, we needed to streamline the Crossroads. This is why we offer the Crossroads line only in our classic Tobacco Burst and without any customization. The guitar is fully compatible with our Private Build hand-wound pickups and solid brass bridge, for those who wish to upgrade further down the road.
The resulting Little Sister Crossroads was everything we expected it to be, and more. A gorgeous addictive instrument that will inspire you to play nonstop.
