From B&G Guitars:
The Big Sister concept was born with the release of the Little Sister guitar. We wanted to apply the same long-lost traditional materials & techniques, which haven't been in use since the early 1960s, along with the unique chambered body design and '50s nitro finish to a bass guitar. 

The guitar is made out of super-light pieces of aged mahogany, with a one-piece body and a one-piece neck. We chose a set-neck construction, a feature that is harder to build, but allows sound to travel back and forth without losing energy. 

We also use traditional glues (hide glue, fish glue, urea-formaldehyde) to minimize the loss of sound frequencies. 

The Big Sister is designed to offer supreme playability, rich sound and versatility. Together with its unique looks and light weight, we wanted the Big Sister to stand out and become a desirable instrument, a beautiful working tool that can fit in the toolbox of any musical genre. On stage, at home, or in the studio, the Big Sister was built to leave a mark.
