    Again, I admitted up front that I was a bit thin-skinned about the photo she posted...

    She has the right to post whatever she wants.

    I also have the right to not look at it or support her in any way.

    I do love the guitar though... kinda wished they did something equally angular with the headstock though.

    Yep - totally right about the headstock.

    I wonder if that was an Ernie Ball thing though. Like do what you want but the headstock has to be constant throughout our whole line ?

    From a design standpoint though, it’s not right And as particular as she is about visuals I’m highly doubtful that was her decision

    It's nice to see a new design that isn't just a pointy guitar. I look at the new guitars that come out every year and I think that the Les Paul, Tele and Strat are the only designs ever made, other than pointy shredders. Yeah, I guess they're iconic and all, but when I nice design comes along I keep hoping it gets popular. We need more John Backlunds...

    I'd like to see her. My boss has seen her a ton, and actually just went to one of her shows a couple weeks ago.

    Thanks! I’m good on guitars this year and I may have to hold out for the Ernie version. It’s a 5-10 year plan!

    I saw her 9 or 10 years ago in a smallish venue. I wish I could go back and see it again, I really liked how her guitar sounded. But I'm sure her current deal is fun. Hope I get to see it.

    Her music does nothing for me. I think it’s great that she uses the guitar to create her craft etc but for me, I find her music boring.

    Maybe the Bo guitar would look at the St Vincent guitar and say "you been eating regular, huh?".
    And you're sure it's not a Lady Bo guitar?

    Admittedly, I live in a hole
    In the ground. Far beneath a big rock.

    I had no idea St. Vincent was a band, or that the St. Vincent guitar was a sig model for this Annie character. Or that she even existed. Never heard of her, the band, or the music until this thread.

    I have wanted one of those guitars since I first saw one at a GC. Didn't play it or look it up, cause it was way out of my price range. But I thought it looked cool as hell and immediately wanted one.

    Now that I know who she is, and have seen her play and sing thanks to the wonders of this here Internet thingy...

    Yep. I still want one.

    The sterling version is very affordable. I handled one and it needed a set up bad, so I've no idea how good or bad the budget version is. It feels good across the lap, the neck is pretty thin for my tastes.

    I just looked up the Sterling. I didn't know about that, ether.

    I've been pretty impressed with some of the sterling basses, and the Sterling Petrucci I played was rather tempting. I'll definitely test drive one if I see one. I really just dig the heck out of the design.

    Oh, I love the very vintage tiesco style design too. Its shaped like a lady, and you know I like that. Be careful not to judge it's potential on the current set-up

    I tested one of those guitars out at GC a while back cause it sure looks cool as hell. Alas, it didn't fit how I hold guitars, i.e. it seemed to me a lot like an explorer, which is not my thing. I also didn't care for the mini-hums, but then I've never met a humbucker I've liked.
