The St. Vincent guitar is a specially designed instrument that fits the contours of a woman's body. The name of the guitar comes from its superstar designer Annie Clark (aka St. Vincent), who created the instrument as a way to make playing the guitar more comfortable for women.

The St. Vincent guitar was designed by scratch to meet the practical needs of female guitarists. The instrument combines 1980s German synth-pop aesthetics with colors that are characteristics of classic American muscle cars. In addition to its beautiful exterior, the guitar also features an unusual shape, which is slimmer and devoid of curves. The elongated body hugs a woman's curves while the light design makes it far easier to play. At just seven pounds, Clark's guitar is perfect for female artists.

While the St. Vincent guitar was initially designed for women, it can also be used by smaller people in general who are unable to play a traditional guitar comfortably.
