St. Vincent designed a guitar specifically for women

by Samantha O'Connor, 16 February 2016

There's "room for a breast or two" when using the new guitar St. Vincent designed specifically for women. Annie Clark has teamed up with Ernie Ball to create her own female-friendly guitar, which shows off the waist and accommodates breasts, while supporting a smaller frame with its light-weight seven pound design. Aside from functionality, the new model combines a retro aesthetic with a '67 Corvette color scheme. It will be released in March.

"I'm not a very big person. 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," she said in an interview with Guitar World. Problem solved.

"The weight is redistributed so that it has a thin waist. I was always finding when I was playing onstage and wearing various stage outfits the guitar would cut across one of the best features of the female body, which is your waist. I carry my guitar pretty high so I had to make all of these costumes based on the fact that you wouldn't be able to see if I had a waist or not. I wanted to make something that looked good and not just on a woman, but any person. I hope that people will enjoy… that men and women will enjoy the ergonomics. But smaller people and women especially."
