I expect Doog to buy one. Interesting spiel here about the ergonomics etc, Ernie Ball link here.

Has a little of the Fret King Esprit (the what?) to my eyes. And a fugly headstock. But I like her.

Probably wouldn't like it except that I love St Vincent and now love this.

I like this a lot!

Whether I'd play one, I'm not sure, but it certainly looks great.

The shape is cool. I don't like the inlays or the strat knobs. Quite like the idea of a bolt on with a mahogany body and a rosewood neck though.

I'm digging it. Kindve reminds me of those quirky vintage Sears/Montgomery ward guitars in a way.

I've drawn a very similar shape and thought it was too wacky. Ernie ball headstock shape ruins a lot of good guitar shapes. I halfway like it.

You can see the MM Armada bit in that top. Like it or love it, it's kinda funky and fitting for such a larger-than-life character on stage that she is.

Was a bit of a shame that after the Brooklyn show from the Fall that she put away the Moollon VT's for good...we were rather optimistic at the time (and Mr.Park being a huge fan of hers), but alas, we don't even have a promotional budget to throw cash as folks. May not have liked the Moollies much, though more sensibly the fact that she'd already been toting several Albert Lee models for a while would make logical sense for a future MM collaboration Wink

A piece of tasteless shit. I like St. Vincent only because she is hot. Her music is a pile of spiritual shit. But she is hot. But her music is a pile of unformed shit. As well as her newly designed guitars. A big pile of tasteless shit. But she is hot. Yeah. I like her a lot

Well at least you find her physically attractive, I'm sure that's a great comfort to her.

Anyhow, prefer this version:

Sorry man, you're going to have to post a picture of yourself now so I can determine whether you're hot enough for me to put up with this garbage.

Why? It's called diversity. You or somebody else can call Oasis a pile of shit and I don't ask you to show me the evidence that your tune was on the radio, or that your music picks the interest of at least 10 people who follow you and support, or that you can allow yourself to appear on the central tv channels wearing coat indoors and saying "fuck" every ten seconds, or that you once knocked out your brother on stage and ruined the show for a couple of thousands people who have no clue in music and for that reason came from far away to listen to you.
I'm going to repeat that musicwise St.Vincet is unformed pile of shit, period. That guitars are utterly tasteless shit. She is hot

Did Rob actually follow his own advice and move?

Hhmmm. Not sure. Do love St Vincent though. Actor is a phenomenal album, and i really like her stage theatrics.

I'm not a fan of angular/pointy guitars (this just looks like a nicer-on-the-eyes Explorer) but I'm sure it works really well for her.

It's just, the last time I saw a pic of her on stage, she had either an acoustic or old-school archtop jazz box. It's a bit surprising to me for her to want a guitar like this, so I assume she's a lot more eclectic and flamboyant than I thought.

Note to self: listen to more Saint Vincent.

I guess you could say she has pretty eclectic taste in guitars (spoiler for photobomb):

Some huge tunes as well, although I'm not a superfan by any stretch of the imagination (spoiler for YouTube-bomb, ha...):

^Wow, that's very cool indeed. Yet another name to add to my list of "artists I should've been a fan of for years already."
