Is this one of the best set-up guitars right out of the case I’ve ever played?
While many of you know I’ve often linked B&G Guitars with their electric wonders, they sent over their Caletta model for me to review, and WOW—it’s an acoustic treat!
Clear projection, feather-light build, and those rich overtones that’ll leave every guitar lover swooning. Today, we’re focusing on the creme de la creme, the Private Build Caletta. With a snug body size (lower bout just over 14.5 inches) and an air-dried Sitka spruce top adorned with X bracing, it’s an acoustic masterpiece. The tongue on the neck block is a genius touch, easing tension and ensuring a seamless play. And, oh, the mother-of-pearl inlay – it’s the kind of sparkle that’ll catch every eye.
Best part? With this beauty, you don’t have to dig in or get aggressive; even the softest touch brings forth a symphony. Dive in with me and discover why the Caletta is a game-changer!
B&G makes incredible guitars and their latest effort is no exception. One of the nicest parts of the Caletta model is how easy it is to play. With just the lightest touch and effort, the guitar truly sings. This allows me to play more complicated melodies and songs like ragtime stuff without fatiguing or losing the nuance of the genre.
