B&G Guitars

B&G Guitars was founded by Eliran Barashi and Yotam (Kiki) Goldstein, skillful and expert luthiers in the field of vintage guitars from the golden era, and Avi Goldfinger – an artist and entrepreneur.

From the B&G Guitars website:
We are devoted to one thing only – creating the best sounding instruments on the market.

Our guitars are gimmick free. We create a full perfectly well-balanced unique and original instruments that will grow on you, we build instruments that will ignite your passion for the only thing that matters – playing the guitar.

Our designs are the outcome of our secret sauce we found to be the golden rule in creating great instruments, and the result of a meticulous study of what made models from early 20’s to the mid 50’s such timeless classics.

In order to create the best sounding guitars we have one simple rule - everything must be made by ourselves:
We cast our own brass hardware from a unique alloy that conducts the fullest frequency range, we even use thick brass pickup covers to isolate the coils instead of pressed tin covers.
We wind and make our own pickups, we mix and blend our own paint and nitro lacquer and we use our rare stock of aged wood such as Brazilian Rosewood, African Mahogany, Honduran Mahogany and Eastern maple (some of it is 90 years old!)
We even make the glue and grain filler we use.

The result is consistency in the quality and the sound of our instruments. As a small workshop, we control and pay very careful attention to crafting the sound. If it’s not perfect to our ears it doesn’t leave the shop.

Our main approach is the Plug and Play - that is, a great electric guitar must sound great when you plug it to a clean amp and there is only one cable between the amp and the instrument.

We love what we do.

It's the new old guitar.  The story of the Little Sister guitar began from the puzzling question of how the early delta bluesmen were able to fascinate a listener with only one guitar and their simple, yet soulful vocal lines.Understanding that these players fat and throaty guitar tone often came from playing small body Parlor guitars, made us decide to uncover the secret of these instruments and embark on a journey back to the crossroads. While obsessively collecting all sorts of original guitars from the 1920s and ‘30s, that many times were in poor condition and needed a complete restoration, we began to create the special design that would best approach the guitar sound we had become hooked on.We wanted to create an instrument that would be versatile enough for players who use a pick, and for players who are finger stylists. It needed to be superior in terms of playability, and it had to be gimmick free. It had to be lightweight, comfortable and unique; Ultimately, we decided that it should be a small body parlor guitar because these were the instruments that we kept playing again and again.And if she looks like a jewel it's because she was designed by jewelry artist David Weizman who also handcrafts the brass hardware.

B&G_Goldfinger_P90.png

Is This The Best P90 Guitar Ever Made? Not to be confused with the classic movie, the Goldfinger guitars from B & G represents something special which may shake & stir your world. You see the private builds from B & G are extremely popular, they have in fact hand built over 1,000 and the time has come to take their luthier skills to the next level.The specs of the Goldfinger guitars read like the menu of a gourmet restaurant.You will find no 2 - 3 piece tops here, the solid core of African mahogany is encapsulated by a figured top and back each of which is carved from a single piece of aged maple. Ziricote is used on the fingerboard for both the tones and appearance, the spiderweb grain and superb note separation make it an obvious choice on such a high class instrument.The entire guitar is framed by a tasteful figured maple binding and adorned with solid brass hardware which adds its own tonal characteristics and a natural reverb to the overall build. Available with either 2 Hand wound B & G P90's, Kickbucker's or Humbucker's This is the type of guitar which resonates loudly with plenty of character before even plugging it in. The essence here was to learn for high grade violin builds and that's exactly what B & G has managed to achieve. The chances of finding one of these to try in a local shop is next to zero but we have lovingly tonecaptured a multitude of tones and playing styles for you to try now. 

B&G Guitars Caletta All Mahogany
644_B&G-Caletta-All-Mahogany.jpg

Like nothing you've ever heard before. At first sight the B&G Private Build Caletta acoustic guitar raises a question. Is it an OM? GA? In fact it’s none of these things neither is it any other body shape you’d be familiar with. The Caletta's body shape sits somewhere between the traditional 00 to 000 shapes, designed by B&G as a solution to the lack of bass on smaller bodied guitars yet maintaining the ease of play. This unique body shape, along with the hand-voicing technique applied to the guitar's top and selection of premium woods make the Caletta a truly unique and wonderful instrument. The all Mahogany guitar demoed delivers an ultra fast, sensitive response making it a superb choice for fingerstyle techniques. The guitars responsive nature means it’s also capable of going from soft to aggressive playing in a heartbeat. We have found its dry brown tone to be very pleasant and works well in front of a microphone. As for playability, the Caletta guitars are comfortable to work with and extremely lightweight. Take into account that these guitars may not fit the player who constantly plays above the 12th fret. These guitars are a great example of the good things that can happen when innovation meets tradition.

B&G Guitars Caletta Pau Ferro/Spruce

The Caletta's body shape sits somewhere between the traditional 00 to 000 shapes, designed by B&G as a solution to the lack of bass on smaller bodied guitars yet maintaining the ease of play. This unique body shape, along with the hand-voicing technique applied to the guitar's top and selection of premium woods make the Caletta a truly unique and wonderful instrument. The Pau Ferro/Spruce guitar we have demoed is really one of the nicest Pau Ferro guitars we have had in the studio. Pau Ferro on back&sides of acoustic guitar is something unique, while it looks like Rosewood it is in fact closer to Maple in tone but with a little more overall balance. It is bright, but not too bright, and the mid range is a bit more emphasised on the Pau Ferro. While the bass is definitely there, it is not overtaking other frequencies and the result is a nice sounding guitar for pick as well as finger playing. As for playability, the Caletta guitars are comfortable to work with and extremely lightweight. Take into account that these guitars may not fit the player who constantly plays above the 12th fret. These guitars are a great example of the good things that can happen when innovation meets tradition.

This unique body shape, along with the hand-voicing technique applied to the guitar's top and selection of premium woods make the Caletta a truly unique and wonderful instrument. The Caletta Private Build Mahogany/Spruce is what we think the best of both worlds. Thanks to this wood combination and the fact that the top (like on all Caletta Guitars) is 20 years air dried, this guitar is great for fingerstyle as well as pick pick, a sad melody or a rhythmic song. The simplicity in its looks made us feel we are playing on an instrument that wants to be played rather than sit on a fancy stand. Sitting on the lower scale of the Caletta Private Build price range, it is one you ought to consider. As for playability, the Caletta guitars are comfortable to work with and extremely lightweight. Take into account that these guitars may not fit the player who constantly plays above the 12th fret. These guitars are a great example of the good things that can happen when innovation meets tradition.

B&G Guitars Little Sister Private Build Cedar Of Lebanon P90
Bng_PB_Cedar_Of_Lebanon.png

A Heavenly Guitar B&G have managed to get their hands on some of the most acclaimed wood throughout history. Cedar Of Lebanon has been revered for such a very long time it is even referenced in ancient religious text. So why not make guitars from it, for those angelic tones. The tones of this guitar can be described as a blend of sweetness, warmth and delicacy added to the usual acoustic like tones the little sister range is known and loved for. With an African Mahogany body, Honduran Mahogany neck and Pau ferro fingerboard this is certainly a multicultural setup with a "waterfall of harmonics" radiating from the guitar. Acoustically the little sister already sounds amazing, but when you plug it in the p90 pair offers everything any one could need all the way to heavy rock tones. Two Volumes and a master tone control allow many interesting blends of unique tones and the 50's wiring keeps things sounding "open".This is one very very special guitar with finishes of Whiskey Barrel or Flora which features delicately painted flowers throughout the body, both of which add to the quality in every way.

This unique body shape, along with the hand-voicing technique applied to the guitar's top and selection of premium woods make the Caletta a truly unique and wonderful instrument. The Caletta Private Build Ziricote/Spruce is to us the blues girl in the family. The minute we took it out of the case, this guitar made us think of Eric Clapton (Eric if you read this make sure to check this guitar out). Also the Ziricote wood that B&G chose for this guitar is really stunning and from what we know about B&G, it's safe to assume that every wood they choose for their guitars is on the same levels of quality. As for playability, the Caletta guitars are comfortable to work with and extremely lightweight. Take into account that these guitars may not fit the player who constantly plays above the 12th fret. These guitars are a great example of the good things that can happen when innovation meets tradition.

Building handmade guitars takes time and has it's costs, that makes them less accessible to all players. With that in mind, the B&G Little Sister Crossroads was born, Asia-manufactured variant of the Little Sister that provides classic B&G looks and construction at a more affordable cost.The first Crossroads series which was released in early 2017 came only with P90 pickups. The demand for a Humbuckers version grew rapidly and B&G finally released the new Humbuckers Crossroads in early 2018 with a fresh new finish too, the Midnight Ocean. Describing this guitar is simple; it is on the top of our list for guitars up to 2000€! It responds so well to dynamics, have a unique tone, yet familiar and soothing.B&G, by all means, did not compromise on tone. The Little Sister Crossroads series is built out of quality tone-woods - African Mahogany body and neck, Wenge fingerboard and solid Maple top. It is finished using UV finish which compliments the sound characteristics of the wood. Factory-made solid brass hardware made it possible to maintain the familiar look and similar tonal qualities to the Little Sister Private Build.The Little Sister Crossroads Humbuckers is without a doubt an inspiring instrument.

The Big Sister is the bass version of B&G's renowned Little Sister electric guitar. Handmade in Israel in small quantities, the Big Sister bass guitar is hard not to fall in love with. From looks to playability it is nothing short of perfect. At first we had doubts as to wether it is a good slapper/rocker or not, due to the semi hollow body construction, but once we plugged it these doubts became nonexistent! It delivers and in heaps.The Big Sister bass is not extra heavy which makes it good for the stage, it stays in tune with no problem and really comfortable to play on. When ordering we suggest checking the choice of woods and finishes B&G offers so you could get your very own unique Big Sister.

Improving Perfection With Beauty It's hard for anyone to argue that B&G guitars are anything but attractive. The Little sister range harks back to pre-war parlour guitars and the Step Sister range add upon that formula with slightly more modern appointments such as solid bodies and solid headstock's as options. But B&G guitars aren't simply nice looking tools, they play effortlessly from the Crossroads range all the way to this guitar ... honestly you won't want to put them down. B&G like to experiment with tone woods and the Ziricote for many is the peak result of this so far. Ziricote is a wood which can be used on the fingerboard AND the top, B&G have found a method of sinking the Ziricote into the maple top which provides both a wonderful new appearance with familiar yet new tones. Did you get this? They are literally sinking the Ziricote into the Maple. Insane.The mahogany body and Ziricote / Maple top paired with a set of B&G designed Humbuckers will give you the familiar 50/60's single cut feels and tone with the outstanding build quality and aesthetics that B&G oozes. Let us know how you think it compares to the rest of the range on Facebook and Instagram.
