    If I remember correctly, this was a custom job done by PRS for Lady Gaga.

    Still better than the EBMM St Vincent.

    What's that? You want to attach this beautiful rosewood neck to an actual plank body with no upper fret access? Absolutely wonderful idea!

    If you can't tell, that ebmm gets me a tad salty. Such a waste of a beautiful neck.

    no upper fret access? you can get to the 20th fret completely unimpeded and then it's a bit of work for the last couple, just like a lot of other guitars (les pauls) I will say they're not the most comfortable guitar I've played (they suck for playing classical style imo) and I didn't like the mini humbuckers. I'm more salty that there's no albert lee 7 or that ebmm still hasn't made an 8 string.

    It's been a minute since I played one, but I recall 19 frets being relatively easy to access and three requiring obsurd positioning to reach.

    And it's not les paul "silly neck joint" weird, but "god damn it, my pinky hit the body and now i gotta do mitten hands just to hit the next three frets." lol

    I always thought people over exagurated strat and LP fret access. My hand never touches the square heel and i can still hit the highest fret. The Vincent sig lacked a cutaway. I couldn't touch the top 2-3 frets without removing my thumb from the back of the neck.

    :shrug: I rarely have a problem reaching all the frets since I have long fingers, but I really hate bad neck/heel transitions. It's part of why I love neck through guitars- there is no transition.

    Actually, the Ibanez ic507 had a similar issue with the pinky hitting the inside of the cutaway. My friend sold his, in part, because of that. That guitar had a nice heel too. I just hate guitars that have a cutaway that's not even remotely as deep as the highest fret. Even if it had perfect fret access, it'd still be an ugly double rectangle with an equally ugly pickguard.

    I will however agree with you that there needs to be an Albert Lee 7 and EBMM 8 string.

    Let’s just agree that this lady isn’t particularly fond of the St Vincent Signature; and therefore hates all women.

    The fact that the St. Vincent so polarizing still is proof to me it's the best new design in years.

    What about that Tosin thing? A lot of love/hate with that thing.

    And yes... All women are evil. It's a pretty well known fact that we like to suck all the fun out of things.

    Joking aside, I'll never mock someone for liking what I consider doofy instruments. Like what you want, it's no biggie to me. Doesn't change that i think it looks dumb. (The same way a lot of people hate explorers and warlocks, which I both love.)

    My point (which I admittedly oversimplified) was that the St. Vincent is pretty objectively a good visual design in terms of line/space/balance - the things design is judged on. It’s a complete thought even down to the knobs.

    Whether anyone likes it or not is up to them, and there are reasons both valid (just not their taste/ergonomics) and not (underlying sexism).

    It must be a nightmare with that 1/2 scale thing on the dragon's head.

    Hmm, I love that the thing looks like someone pretending to be Dali and someone pretending to be Giger collaborated. I think the price is steep, but it's not really outrageous. If anything, it makes me want to glue some false teeth, doll heads, and a glass eye to one of my old beater guitars and use it during a show for visual effect. :lol:

    Is it weird that the thing that bothers me most is the extra finger? Like... the whole thing bothers me, but that puts it over the top lol

    It is weird, because I would understand the extra finger if each one were there to hold a string but it is not the case...
