In the world of “why didn’t anyone think of this before?” rock star St. Vincent, ( aka Annie Clark,) has designed a guitar with women in mind.
Struck by her limitations on selecting guitars due to her smaller size, she decided to do something about it. In an interview with Guitar World, St. Vincent stated: “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.” And thier shape.
In collaboration with guitar maker Ernie Ball, St. Vincent has designed a guitar that suits her body type. The new lighter prototype contains less knobs, yet still allows her to create custom sound configurations. And since she carries the guitar high on her torso, there is an unusual cutout at the top that allows room for ” a breast or two.”
The instrument, dubbed the “St. Vincent Signature Ernie Ball MusicMan Guitar,” made its debut performance at a Taylor Swift concert in front of 35,000 people, with great success.
No word on when the guitar will be availabable to the public for purchase.
