What We Say

We don't think it's hyperbole to say the St Vincent is the greatest mainstream guitar design of the last 25 years - it's a real show stopper of a guitar. As fans of Annie's we'd happy to have one in the shop anyway but to think of these guitars as simply a cool looking signature model is to do them a disservice: this is a fantastic piece of design that should appeal to far more players than just fans of the artist. The St Vincent has been promoted as the first guitar designed specifically with female players in mind but to it give it it's due it's a remarkably ergonomic design for either gender, to the extent that if you pick up a Strat immediately after a spell with the St Vincent the Strat suddenly a bit ungainly and awkward. Meanwhile Musicmans super silky oiled neck is an absolute delight, and it's a spectacular guitar to play.

This is the original three pickup variant in a rather demure vintage sunburst that together with the striking outline puts us in mind of a Gibson Firebird. The three Dimarzio humbuckers cover a great range of tones, being bright enough to give a reasonable Strat impression in the combined positions but also with a very pokey bridge position and a mellow, slightly Tele like neck tone.
