'For Me a Guitar That Is Not Too Heavy Is Really Important Because I'm Not a Very Big Person', She Said, 'There Is Room for a Breast, or Two'

The wonderful Annie Clark (St. Vincent) has been making headlines in the guitar world, joining the Ernie Ball Music Man family, and launching her own beautiful signature series. 

The artist has put a lot of creative work into the design an build of the guitar. According to the Ernie Ball Music Man site: “The unique electric guitar was crafted to perfectly fit her form, playing technique and personal style. The St. Vincent signature is available in black or custom Vincent Blue, a color hand-mixed by Annie. Featuring an African mahogany body, Ernie Ball Music Man tremolo, gunstock oil and hand-rubbed rosewood neck and fingerboard, St. Vincent inlays, Schaller locking tuners, 5-way pick up selector with custom configuration and 3-mini humbuckers, the guitar also comes complete with Ernie Ball Regular Slinky guitar strings.”

Talking to GuitarWorld.com, St. Vincent explained: “For me a guitar that is not too heavy is really important because I’m not a very big person. I can’t even play a Sixties Strat or Seventies 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.” 

On her Instagram profile she also explained the importance of the guitar for women. “I wanted to design a tool that would be ergonomic. There is room for a breast, Or two”.
