Handbuilt by B&G Master Builders, Selected by Sam Ash Guitar Specialists
Each and every aspect of the all Step Sister models – from tonewoods, finishes, pickups, and more – are all carefully chosen to ensure that each model is truly unique. As with the rest of the B&G Guitars in our collection, this Step Sister Custom in particular was selected by our team of guitar experts because of its amazing sound & playability, its premium build quality, and its gorgeous aesthetic.

Tradition and Innovation
The Step Sister shares the core elements of the original Little Sister: a one-piece mahogany body, topped with some of the most preciously figured maple tops and the signature B&G brass hardware, cast in-house, that contributes to the lively, resonant voice of the guitars, as well to the stunning looks. The 24-3/4"-scale neck is extended to 22 frets, and the solid headstock is graced by a beautiful ziricote overlay.

Unparalleled Tone and Playability
The Step Sister is the rock sibling to the Little Sister, with its body shape and neck heel redesigned to allow for unrestricted access to the highest frets. Made to deliver true vintage tone, the P-90 pickups are hand-wound in-house, and are unpotted for maximum clarity and airiness.

  • Vintage-Inspired Tone, Look, and Feel in a Top-Class, Individually Built Guitar
  • Lightweight, Chambered Body Construction
  • Supreme Playability with Easy Access to the Highest Frets
  • Hand-Wound P-90 Pickups
