The "Private Builds" represent the brand's Custom Shop. The instruments that come out of the Custom Shop benefit from the greatest attention and the best essences available. Production of Private Build models is limited to 30 guitars per month to ensure that each guitar is at the peak of the brand's craftsmanship. Tables chosen by us, mahogany and other selected species,
we work as closely as possible with the brand. Every B&G Private Build guitar we stock is unique and 100% staff approved. Put your hands on it... You will see how much the guitars made in this "small country" can be "greatly" surprising!
After having made hundreds of instruments entirely by hand, it was time for the brand to raise the bar even higher and use their expertise to create a new model, which would be a challenge and push the skills of the brand. at most. Placing itself in competition with instruments such as the ES335 / 339 and other American i35s, the B&G Goldfinger differs from them by its extraordinary characteristics for a guitar of this type. Indeed, where all the brands use tale-collé, B&G offers an instrument sculpted in the mass, with a table and a solid back . A real arch top with more rock dimensions.
The Goldfinger Private Build has a semi-hollow type construction. It is equipped with a set neck with a 24.75 pitch, with a junction at the 16th fret. Custom Shop obliges, the selection of woods is omnipresent, we find the use of Honduran mahogany for the neck, a sorted African mahogany for the sides and a 5A maple top / back for this model. The construction is superb and free from defects. It's a craftsman guitar, from A to Z. Everything is done "in house". We are really on the very high end and it feels from the opening of the case until the first notes played. It's very balanced, sweet and complex, with bite. The slightest subtlety of your playing comes out perfectly, all with a very woody rendering and a real sound signature. Ultra light, dynamic and precise, the guitar shines with its great versatility in clean registers, jazz, blues and rock. The P90s version provides a little more slap, treble complexity and articulation than the humbuckers.
The B&G Guitars Goldfinger is the ideal companion for playing on your sofa, for accompanying a very beautiful voice in duet, for piercing through the mix within your rock band. Expressing itself as well with the fingertips as with the pick, it is one of the guitars that we dare not describe with words and that we prefer to let express themselves in the hands of a musician. If you are looking for a guitar with a totally original design and perfect execution, the B&G Goldfinger is for you! The pinnacle of what the young Israeli brand can deliver. Delivered in hard case.
