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 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.
