Ernie Ball Music Man has released the Goldie, an updated version of St. Vincent's popular signature electric guitar.
The Goldie features an okoume body, a figured roasted maple neck, and a 22-stainless-steel-fret ebony fingerboard with custom St. Vincent inlays.
Though it retains the unusual body shape of its predecessor, the Goldie has been updated with a trio of newly-designed Ernie Ball Music Man gold foil mini humbuckers – controlled by a five-way pickup selector – a three-ply parchment pickguard that has been relocated underneath the pickups, a reverse headstock, and brass saddles.
Other features on the guitar include Schaller locking tuners, chrome hardware, parchment control knobs, and pearl tuning keys.
The Ernie Ball Music Man St. Vincent signature Goldie guitar is available now in three finishes – Cashmere, Silk Charmeuse, and Velveteen (which also comes with a rosewood fretboard) – for $2,999.
