Designed by St Vincent and Musicman, this made in the USA guitar has a roasted maple neck and ebony fingerboard.
Features a lightweight African mahogany body, two Dimarzio humbucking pickups and comes with Musicman flightcase.
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 twin humbucker variant in a rather lovely Sea Breeze finish that bares a striking resemblence to Fender's Sonic Blue. The Dimarzio humbuckers provide great tones on their own with a significantly grittier bridge pickup than the mini humbucker in the three pickup variant, but there's also a total of three mid positions two of which combine single coils of the humbucker and drop the output significantly - ideal for setting your amp to snarl on the humbucker and then clean up dramatically when you switch to the 2nd or 4th position.
