St. Vincent signature Music Man?

of course, her playing is kind of... avant-garde 😕 and the singing has certain F. F. Jenkins quality, but

Ms. Clark is just so pretty that i'm lucky she's not peddling gout, 'cause i would consider getting it.

cool instrument and i want one. what about you?

I think some detractors are missing the point.

The St Vincent guitars were designed by her as a woman because most normal styles tend to dig into a ladies' bosom.

I think she is a breath of fresh air personally.
But isnt that the main attraction of a endowed woman playing guitar? From a red blooded mans POV. I can appreciate talent with the playing. But be honest....you are not immune to the power of the mammary.

The guitar is made by EBMM. Of course its a top notch piece of kit. But I will speak just for myself, when it comes to the shape of the guitar I want it to fit and feel familiar.

That guitar makes me think of Devo.
The girl looks squeaky against it.

Yeah I heard that too, and I like Annie Clark but look at the orange picture, the top "horn" of the guitar is digging right in, or it seems, but what do I know my issue is my guitar is digging in my belly not my bosom, though the belly thing is slowly going away

Guitar players “designing“ their signature guitars is a stretch. They had a conversation with a luthier and the luthier designed the guitar to match her idea. Unless she has a wood shop with a bandsaw and a bunch of hand tools she didn’t design anything. She might have drawn the body shape on a piece of paper and then told someone what kind of pickups she liked.

Both St Vincent and the guitar are fine, but she isn’t a guitar designer or guitar builder.

I kinda have the same feel for H.E.R. and her H.E.R. Strat
I recently saw a vid of her playing(one supposes) to a rather large and raucous crowd, she got a couple of nice D's in and what looked like a C underneath a whole bunch of distortion and delay. Iunno maybe it's me.
I've seen a few videos of H.E.R. and consider her to be a Prince-wannabe without nearly as much talent.

("she got a couple of nice D's in and what looked like a C underneath a whole bunch of distortion and delay." is an excellent review.)
