St. Vincent has partnered with Ernie Ball to bring a refreshing new design for 2016. With all of the success of Ernie Ball’s signature models in the past, the St. Vincent model is a promising design for Ernie Ball, sporting a number of compelling features for fans of St. Vincent’s classic style. Read what St. Vincent had to say about the collaboration below.
“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,” Clark said in an official statement. “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.”
The imaginative new signature guitar for the GRAMMY® award-winning musician was envisioned and designed by St. Vincent herself, with support from the award-winning engineering team at Ernie Ball Music Man. The unique electric guitar was crafted to perfectly fit her form, playing technique and personal style. Crafted in Ernie Ball Music Man’s San Luis Obispo, California factory, 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.
