    Well that is cool. On a side note, I should see what Saint Vincent is up to these days. I haven't heard one of her records in like ten years, totally forgot about her.

    I also would expect 32" scale and not 30", he says it is medium-scale in the video, not short. I doubt I'll ever find one anyway. Much like the Big Al, it will get discountinued before it makes it to my backwoods region.

    Very cool! I saw her rundown of the new guitars on Reverb's YT channel, but they didn't mention a bass! I'd love to see a bass vi in the form of St Vincent's sig, but I doubt that'll happen

    I agree, and was kind of hoping that's what they were going to do. But it's some wacky design, very ugly.

    If they do a medium scale EBMM St Vincent bass, I'll do whatever I have to in order to pick one up!!! WOW

    I saw the clip on their site of her playing one. I get that she's talented, but isn't she a bit obscure to literally have a whole line of signature guitars and a bass version, too?

    Well it's no so much her. It's just that the shape is really popular. Just like a les paul bass but better looking.
     
  10. I love love love the st Vincent guitar. Cooler than the big al, reflex or bongo in my opinion!

    Or that majesty monstrosity for that matter.

  11. Obscure? Hardly. She's a far more prominent artist than a lot of other people that have signature guitars.

    She's obscure. I'm betting many people besides me have never heard of her. She might be an amazing musician and even if she is, Pete Wentz is more famous. Just how it is.

    I would agree that she isn't quite as popular as Fallout Boy but her last album made it to #12 on the Billboard charts. Pretty good for an obscure artist...

    As long as the bass is active I'll probably be picking one up.
     
  15. Who is Pete Wentz?

    A bass player that Fender decided is popular enough to make a signature bass worth the investment.

    I can't stop thinking about this. I've been intrigued by the St. Vincent model guitar. Kudos to Annie Clark for coming up with a cool original design, and to EB for their willingness to do different things.

    The St. Vincent design reminds me of the Danelectro Pro Guitar from the mid-60s:

    danelectro-pro-1-1963-776730.
