The B&G Step Sister Crossroads is the second electric guitar model from B&G Guitars. It shares the same DNA as the Little Sister, meaning it was built using the traditional techniques of the Golden Era of electrics.
The Step Sister articulates a different vibe to the Little Sister. The Step Sister is the "mean girl of the family". Flat headstock, 22 frets, neck joins at the 16th instead of the 14th makes this a rock and roll machine! Originally Crafted Only As A Private Build Custom-Made Instrument, Now Available For The First Time As A Crossroads Version.
The Crossroads Series is built from quality solid tone-woods. The B&G Step Sister Combines an African Mahogany Body And Neck, Katalox Fingerboard and Solid Quilted Maple Top (Wolf Burst) or Solid Flamed Top (Honey Burst). Factory-Made Brass Hardware allows it to maintain the familiar look and similar tonal qualities to the Private Build models.
On The Step Sister, The Body Shape Is Shortened, Joined With The Neck At The 16th Fret, And The Fingerboard Extends To 22 Frets. The Neck Heel Has Been Reshaped, For The Easiest Access Up To The Last Fret. The B&G Step Sister Crossroads is a nimble, agile, sleek machine developed for ease of playability.
The neck pickup is placed slightly closer to the bridge on the Step Sister delivering a brighter and more defined tone, and a beautiful hollow quality when paired with the bridge pickup.
The Step-Sister Crossroads with Humbuckers comes packed with a pair of B&G’s Crossroads Humbucking pickups and Is fully Compatible With the Private Build Hand-Wound Pickups And Solid Brass Bridge, just in case you wish to upgrade these in the future.
Features open geared Grover Tuners for both Vintage Styling and modern tuning stability.
