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.
