St. Vincent Has Designed a Guitar Specifically Fitted for Women's Bodies

“There is a room for a breast. Or two.”

Teaming up with Ernie Ball Music Man, Annie Clark (who is better known by her moniker St. Vincent) has designed her own guitar that stands out among other signature options for its unique design specifically fitted for a woman’s body. On the composition, Clark shared via Instagram, “I wanted to design a tool that would be ergonomic, lightweight, and sleek. There is room for a breast. Or two.” In addition to its one-of-a-kind blueprint, the guitar is also striking for the fact that it is designed from scratch. Although signature models from renowned guitarists are nothing new, these reworks are usually customized iterations of existing prototypes. Integrating “1980’s German synth-pop aesthetics with American muscle-car colors,” this new offering is truly unmatched.

The new model is also designed with women’s typically smaller frames in mind. As someone with a slight physique herself, Clark describes the physical toll that famously heavy guitars such as the Gibson Les Paul has on her body, a model that weighs in at about nine to ten pounds. In contrast, her new signature guitar clocks in at around seven pounds and is entirely suited for comfortable play either on stage or on one’s lap. Complementing its singular exterior is an interior makeup that is equally individual. The model is constructed with a highly uncommon five-way switch that allows for full flexibility in mixing and matching the instrument’s three pickups, a feature that was formulated by Clark herself, along with Ernie Ball’s senior engineers Drew Montell and CEO Sterling Ball. You can pre-order the custom St. Vincent Ernie Ball Music Man guitar model here, and can check out more about what Clark has to say about the new release in the video below.
