Learn what went into making St. Vincent's signature guitar:


At the EBMM booth at NAMM 2017, Annie Clark talks about her signature models:


Ernie Ball Music Man collaborated closely with St. Vincent to create a signature guitar that perfectly fits her playing style, with an unusual, yet familiar body shape. The close collaboration results in an extremely personal model, available in two finishes -- one of which, "Vincent Blue," is hand-mixed by Annie herself.

The best playing guitar available out there. I did my homework and actually played over 30 different guitars and this one was a standout.

Sound
The way the pickups create any sound I was looking for is awesome. This guitar IS different- and not just in its visual design. Locking tuners actually LOCK even with a full wood five.

Features
If you have never played a Music Man neck then prepare to be amazed. The rosewood NECK...not just the fingerboard, feels amazing and plays amazing. It's a speed freaks guitar.

Ease of Use
This guitar is the most comfortable guitar I have ever played. I have a '76 LP and a Firebird VII and this guitar is so much easier to play for an extended period of time. It's neck is the fastest I've ever played and the tremolo dives deep and NEVER goes out of tune.

Quality
Attention to detail is second to NONE. It arrived set up perfect and it just oozes quality in fit and finish. This is another guitar that my son will inherent.

Value
To call a guitar that costs 2k inexpensive sounds a little cheeky I know but....this guitar is like so well designed and built that it is really amazing that they don't charge 2 or even 3 times as much. It's is that good. I own a custom shop Gibson and it is not better in any form or fashion to the St. Vincent. And you know how much Gibson charges for all their read more stuff. My Fireburd costs almost 500% more than this EBMM guitar. i

Manufacturer Support
Never had a problem with EBMM but if they act anything like they build then...they must be top-shelf.

The Wow Factor
When I opened the case...hell, when I opened the box and saw the case...top shelf I tell you. The guitar was set-up low-low with NO buzz. I got the blue because of the story of how Annie mixed the color herself...now I want the black one too! There is also a natural unpainted version with gold hardware coming out...beautiful.

Musical Background:
I have played guitar for 30 years...and I just play for myself...and my wife and dogs..mostly though it's just me

Musical Style:
Hip-hop is not MUSIC! It's entertainment...it's not music to me without someone playing an instrument or having any type of musi
