Hi Daniel,

The only time I've ever heard of Little Sister guitars was here on the AGF. Just checked out their website - looks like they're in North Carolina? Some beautiful guitars. I just checked out two of the Les Paul type guitars and they're $10k. Some of their other guitars are far less pricey.

Do you have one?

Hi Dru.

How are things out your way ?
Do not have one yet but I am heading in a new direction for writing and recording and their guitars have the sound I think I want. The Crossroads model seems reasonable but they only come with 1.68 string spacing and I need minimum,
1 3/4. ( prefer 1 13/16ths )

Will probably be selling my Northwood Braz D or my Miller.

B&G Little Sister? The B&G Cedars Of Lebanon was my inspiration for putting this one together:

B&G Guitars Little Sister?
The "private builds" are made in Israel. The more affordable Little Sister Crossroads is "Asia-manufactured" with more mass-production-friendly hardware.

Thanks for the info. The site I went to must have been a retailer that was selling them. That would explain the $10k guitars, lol

I haven't had any of those in my hands. Even the Crossroads model isn't exactly cheap, but from what I can tell it is very good if you like the proportions and sounds they lean towards. I see the "private builds" as very much high-end guitars.
