St. Vincent has a designed a guitar – from scratch – that better suits women’s bodies. In March, the Grammy Award-winning musician (otherwise known as Annie Clark) releases a signature guitar in collaboration with Ernie Ball Music Man.
The guitar body itself has been crafted to be ergonomic, lightweight, and sleek… and by ergonomic, she really means: “room for a breast or two.”
“I’m not a very big person,” she told Guitar World. “I can’t even play a ’60s Strat or ’70s Les Paul. I would need to travel with a chiropractor on tour in order to play those guitars. It’s not that those aren’t great guitars, but they render themselves impractical and unfunctional for a person like me because of their weight. They’re prohibitive, so this is a very light guitar and the weight is redistributed so that it has a thin waist.”
