St. Vincent reveals 'ergonomic' signature guitar

Ernie Ball Music Man has announced a signature guitar model for St Vincent (Annie Clark).

The guitar, which is available in Black or Vincent Blue - a new finish hand-mixed by Annie Clark - expands on Music Man's tradition for leftfield shapes and was developed by Clark alongside Music Man's design team.

Clark is already a long-term user of the company's Albert Lee signature model. As well as looking ace, the body shape has been designed with comfort from a female point of view.

Clark posted to St Vincent's Facebook page, "It is with pride that I present the St. Vincent Signature @ernieball Music Man Guitar. I wanted to design a tool that would be ergonomic*, lightweight, and sleek. So excited to be working with Ernie Ball. *There is room for a breast^^Or two"

Ernie Ball Music Man St Vincent features

  • African mahogany body
  • Set rosewood neck
  • Rosewood fingerboard (25 ½-inch scale length
  • Custom Music Man vibrato
  • 3X mini-humbuckers

The Ernie Ball Music Man St Vincent model will see a full release early next year, most likely at NAMM 2016, and is available for preorder now at Meanwhile, here's a video of St Vincent playing the guitar on stage with Taylor Swift and Beck!
