B&G Guitars took the guitar world by storm when they released their first electric, the venerable Little Sister. I was intrigued when they announced their first acoustic guitar, the Caletta, and it did not disappoint. The guitar is very responsive and alive. Based on a traditional short scale 12-fret 00, the Caletta sports a matte finish, nice looking honey burst top, ziricote fretboard, headstock overlay and bridge, and a slotted headstock. With hardshell case. Very nice guitar.  I’ll let B&G describe it:

“The Sitka spruce top and Honduran mahogany back and sides is one of the most classic wood combinations in the tradition of the acoustic guitars. Because of its inner tonal balance and the perfect structuring of harmonics above the fundamental notes, it makes for a versatile instrument, suitable for a wide range of styles and genres. In the Caletta, the basses are well focused and controlled, the midrange is expressive and the trebles are rounded and smooth. The voice is warm, yet clear, without a trace of boominess. The spruce top delivers a gentle natural compression, that softens the attack, offering a well-balanced tone to both fingerpickers and strummers. Single note accents and fast solo runs are equally clear and detailed, as are strummed chords and flatpicking alternate basses.”
