St. Vincent Taylor Swift

Ernie Ball, a manufacturer of musical instruments, guitar strings and accessories, has designed an imaginative signature guitar with Grammy Award-winning musician and guitarist St. Vincent (a.k.a. Annie Clark). Envisioned and designed by St. Vincent with support from the engineering team at Ernie Ball Music Man, the unique electric guitar was crafted to perfectly fit her form, playing technique and personal style.


Crafted in Ernie Ball Music Man’s San Luis Obispo CA factory, the St. Vincent signature is available in black or custom Vincent Blue, a color hand-mixed by Annie. Featuring an African mahogany body, Ernie Ball Music Man tremolo, gunstock oil and hand-rubbed rosewood neck and fingerboard, St. Vincent inlays, Schaller locking tuners, five-way pick up selector with custom configuration and three-mini humbuckers, the guitar also comes complete with Ernie Ball Regular Slinky guitar strings.

“I’m extremely grateful to have been given the opportunity to design a guitar this personal with this company, this family, in whom I believe so completely,” said St. Vincent. “The entirety of my experience as a guitarist is invested in this instrument. I sought to create a tool that would help and inspire those who share my priorities in a guitar, namely that it be comfortable and lightweight and that it exhibit clean lines, all without sacrificing tone flexibility.”

“Developing the St. Vincent model with Annie has been a highlight of my career,” said Sterling Ball, CEO, Ernie Ball Music Man.
