St. Vincent’s Annie Clark is a beast of a guitar player, so it only makes sense that she market her own signature guitar. She’s teamed up with Ernie Ball Music Man to create the St. Vincent signature model. That’s an image of the guitar, next to Clark, above, though you can take a look at more photos and specs at the Music Man website. The guitar is available in black or Vincent blue (a color that Clark hand-mixed, herself), and will ship in 2016.
“I’m extremely grateful to have been given the opportunity to design a guitar this personal with this company, this family, in whom I believe so completely,” Clark says in a press release. “The entirety of my experience as a guitarist is invested in this instrument. I sought to create a tool that would help and inspire those who share my priorities in a guitar, namely that it be comfortable and lightweight and that it exhibit clean lines, all without sacrificing tone flexibility.”
