St. Vincent, a.k.a. Annie Clark, has designed her own guitar, courtesy of a partnership with Ernie Ball Music Man. Available in black or “Vincent Blue,” a color hand-mixed by Clark herself, the guitar will ship in 2016. You can read up on its technical design features here.
“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,” said Clark 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.”
