As a fan of the Little Sister guitars from the outset, I'm glad to see that B&G has released a more accessible line of guitars that, to me, represent a great value. I was pleased as soon as I plugged one in. I'll let B&G describe it:
"Following the tremendous success and recognition of the Little Sister, we wanted to create a new version of the guitar that could be accessible to all players. With careful work and determination, we started developing the Crossroads series - an Asia-manufactured variant of the Little Sister that offers 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 series needed to be built from quality tone-woods: African Mahogany body, one-piece Indonesian Mahogany neck, Mexican Royal Ebony fingerboard, and solid Maple top. In order to keep the wood alive and resonant, we chose the thinnest modern finish available - UV-cued Poly. Factory-made solid brass hardware made it possible to maintain the familiar look and similar tonal qualities as our original Little Sister. In order to provide our customers with the best value, we needed to streamline the production. This is why we offer the Crossroads in only two colors and without any custom options. 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 Little Sister Crossroads turned out to be everything we expected, and more - a gorgeous, enchanting instrument that will inspire you to play nonstop.
