A Unique Guitar Built for St. Vincent

Get a guitar that is as unique as its namesake with the Ernie Ball Music Man St. Vincent Signature solidbody electric guitar. Designed in conjunction with St. Vincent (Annie Clark) this signature model's striking angular lines, inlays, and covered mini-humbuckers fit her form and personal playing tastes. The neck is finished in gunstock oil and hand-rubbed wax for a woody, natural feeling, and although constructed with denser materials, the African mahogany body and rosewood neck are lightweight and a perfect complement to its eye-catching body design. The Ernie Ball Music Man St. Vincent guitar delivers one-of-a-kind looks, great tone, and smooth playability.

Floating vibrato and Schaller locking tuners for perfect pitch

With the Ernie Ball Music Man custom floating vibrato, you'll get in tune and stay there. The Ernie Ball Music Man St. Vincent's custom vibrato is constructed of chrome-plated hardened steel with bent steel saddles. The headstock is adorned with Schaller M6 locking tuners that make string changing fast and easy. Just insert the string, tighten the clamp screw, and tune it up to pitch. Strings won't be wound around the shaft, so your tuning will be reliable, no matter how hard you play.

Incomparable rosewood neck

The rosewood neck and fingerboard of the Ernie Ball Music Man St. Vincent signature model guitar features 22 frets, a 25.5" scale, and 10" radius. The neck feels great in your hand, thanks to the gunstock oil and hand-rubbed wax. There's no stickiness to slow you down, and the natural woodiness makes the instrument feel like an extension of your hand. Along with the sculpted body heel, the overall fluidity of the neck is extraordinary in all regards.

It's easy to keep an Ernie Ball Music Man guitar in top playing condition

Ernie Ball Music Man guitars like the St. Vincent Signature sport their innovative truss rod adjustment wheel, which makes it easy to fine-tune the neck.

Turn the wheel a bit at a time until your neck feels just right, and your Axis will be ready to rock. You won't have to do it often, but this innovative feature just goes to show you that Ernie Ball Music Man instruments are made for hard-working and hard-playing musicians.

As Good As It Gets

First off, we have to talk about the vaguely cubist aesthetic this truly unique guitar has (sort of like the hypothetical lovechild between the stylings of Ray Dietrich and Picasso). It's unlike anything else out there by a mile, and this is obviously not going to play to everyone's personal tastes. If you think it's an ugly waste of mahogany and rosewood, nothing I can say about its tone or playability is probably going to convince you to strap it on. I get that, and if that describes your reaction to this guitar more power to you. But If you dig it (I personally find it a stunner)--or are at least vaguely intrigued by it--you'll be pleased to know that it plays just as well or better than any guitar on the market.Don't let the sharp angles fool you--on your lap this thing has comfortable ergonomics similar a Stratocaster (maybe even better because of its narrow witdth), and the rosewood neck (not the fingerboard, the NECK) is even more stunning in person. If you've ever played a Music Man guitar you know they have a very unique take on necks (a tad narrower than your average Strat with incredibly low action--a combination that results in fretwork as fast as anything this side of Shredville), so if this appeals to you you're going to be in heaven. It's modeled after the neck on the Albert Lee, and in my opinion it's the best neck Music Man has ever put out. The gun-oil finish feels so wonderful you'll never want to play anything else. On a different note, the neck is set a bit "out there," similar to an SG or Firebird, so if you're used to Les Pauls this might take a bit of getting used to--but it's a very minor adjustment, and as a trade-off the upper frets are right in that ergonomic sweet spot. If you live in the upper registers (as Annie Clark does), it's fantastic.The entire instrument is also incredibly light, making it ideal for anyone with a small frame and/or back problems (Annie Clark made this a priority). Years of football haven't been kind to my back, so I find this particularly appealing. Locking tuners combined with a very stable trem guarantee that this guitar will hold its tune through a mountain of whammy bar abuse. If that's your thing don't let the lack of a Floyd Rose scare you off. I've wore the living crap out of it and it's held its tune very admirably.The Demarzio min-humbuckers are very sensitive, and a light playing touch will do wonders for getting the most out of them (and there's A LOT to get out of them--the available tones probably go into the thousands--blues, jazz, alt, and classic rock players are all well covered here). The 5-position switch is wired in a very odd fashion (position 1-2-3 corresponds to the humbucker, with 4-5 being 2 or all humbuckers) but is actually incredibly intuitive once you unlearn the ancient Strat switch setup we're all used to. The tone knob also has a really unique vibe to it--instead of "muddying" the tone, it kind-of makes the guitar sound like it's being played underwater. It's hard to describe, but it's not at all unpleasant; it just drives home the fact that this guitar will hold a very unique place in your collection, both in terms of looks and in voice. In all, if this guitar speaks to your unique personality and you want something to play that people are going to talk about (it's a real conversation starter, especially in the hotrod-esque blue), you're not going to do any better than this. I personally find it worth every cent, and I wouldn't give it up for the world. Truly unique instruments are a rare thing to find indeed these days.Quick shoutout to Rob at Sweetwater for his awesome customer service. Can't say enough about this company. If you've never done business with them before, prepare to be floored.

Great guitar

I bought this guitar on 11/22/16. I wrote this review on 12/20/16 I don’t get out much and honestly I had never heard of St. Vincent and her music (I don’t know Petrucci either but I’ve gotta ask, why does he always looks so angry?) The St. Vincent model attracted my attention because of the mini-humbuckers mounted on a mahogany body along with that famous MusicMan neck treatment. The rosewood neck also caught my attention. I hadn’t heard of a rosewood neck since Fender built a special Tele completely out of rosewood just for G. Harrison. The guitar has met, and exceeded, all expectations. This is my first MusicMan guitar but it won’t be my last. Pros: Fits my body well, allowing me to position it so reaching the lower frets is easy. I am 5’10, 230 lbs. The guitar balances well in the position that I use it. Good weight, not too heavy, not too light. Annie Clark’s choice of pickup wiring with these humbuckers makes for some very nice sounds which are a tad unique in sound composition. Volume and tone knobs adjust fast. The tone knob covers a very wide range in a hurry which is great when dialing in a new sound. Neck feels great! Neck/body joint is nicely rounded and smooth. I can’t believe Fender still cuts theirs like a square block. CHEAP! Frets are very well finished. Locking tuners are always the way to go! Intonation was spot on all the way up the fretboard when it arrived. I like the bridge cover behind the saddles. It provides an excellent place to rest one’s hand. Very thoughtful addition to the design. Fit and finish are very good overall. Cons: Not the guitars fault but I always put strap locks on rather than use the strap buttons that come with any guitar. The tremolo stays in tune but I wish I could have bought one with a hardtail non-tremolo bridge.

Sweetwater Advice

Ernie Ball Music Man St. Vincent Signature

Annie Clark's signature model is visually striking. But its distinctiveness is more than skin-deep. Its superb ergonomics are perfect for players seeking a big-guitar sound from a light, lean-bodied instrument. The build quality is excellent. Three mini-humbuckers and unconventional wiring provide many distinctive tones, all of which benefit from the guitar's fine intonation and great natural sustain. ...
