    St. Vincent is on PBS Austin City Limits again tonight and I can't look away.
    I like her guitar and would add one to the collection. Three mini-HBs and cool shape, nothing like any I own.

    Her music, her lyrics, her band, her look, Wow!

    The stuff she did with David Byrne a few years ago was pretty cool.

    A few of the Ernie Ball guitars are pretty sweet. Mariposa, Valentine, Stingray

    Her sig MM model is one of the rare unique sig models (one that doesn't look like anything else out there).

    I wish they had carried the shape of the guitar body up to the headstock instead of their usual MM one.

    I'm watching SNL and she just performed her first song. Interesting and I liked it but it's hard for me to get excited about most of what is new today, I just don't feel it. Grew up with hard rock (especially Led Zep) and that set the bar pretty high.
    How would you all categorize her music? I know there are a million labels today and I wonder where she fits.

    As to the guitar, it is cool but I've never seen (or touched) one.
    I've got a list of guitars I'd like to try but am not buying right now.

    That's one of the most interesting guitars I've seen in ages!

    It is a really cool design! It is original but not weird like some and not just a variation of something else. And the Mini-HBs I've heard in reviews sounded really good, and unique.

    It shows that guitars don't have to be simulations of the Tele, Strat and Les Paul. The Billy Bo also has that attraction.

    And 335s!! Man there are a billion 335 clones out there! I just ran across a glowing review of yet another cheap import 335 (less than $200) that is tempting me to open the wallet.

    The shape of the guitar is really cool.
    If it had one fullsize humbucker at the bridge only it would be a guitar that I would like to own.
    The three hini-hums turn me totally off.

    She's cool. I like her guitars fine, good to see they've stopped prattling on how it's "the first guitar ever made for the female body shape" in the promo speak.

    I had a St Vincent for a minute. They look cool, the Sterling (lower level) need the nuts recut and a fret leveling. They also are very uncomfortable play standing up they don't hang well. I sent mine back to Sweetwater. The whole thing felt like a $300 guitar that needed a lot of work to make it playable. Having played Firebirds for 40 years I was instantly intrigued but highly disappointed.
