The Big Sister birth occurred with the release of the Little Sister guitar, at least in the minds of the B&G team. They wanted to apply the same traditional materials & techniques, unique chambered body design, and '50s nitro finish to a bass guitar. The Big Sister is designed to offer supreme playability, rich sound and versatility. Together with its unique looks and light weight the folks at B&G wanted the Big Sister to stand out and become a desirable instrument, a beautiful working tool that can fit in the toolbox of any musical genre. On stage, at home or in the studio, the Big Sister was built to leave a mark.
The Big Sister is available either fretted or fretless, with Aguilar Singles or Aguilar Humbuckers. Honduras mahogany neck and Brazilian rosewood fingerboard are available for an extra charge.
B&G Handmade Guitars are gimmick-free. They create well-balanced, unique and original instruments. They even cast their own brass hardware from a unique alloy that conducts the fullest frequency range and they use thick brass pickup covers to isolate the coils instead of the cheap pressed tin covers used by other manufacturers.
