Designed exclusively for John7Arts / Rock'n'Roll Redux by multimedia artist David Lloyd, an alumni of Central Saint Martins School Of Art and the Institute Of Contemporary Arts in London. Employing the Découpe (cut-up) technique in which written text is cut up and rearranged to create a different and perhaps unexpected new narrative, David has employed shards of lyrics to give discerning fans an opportunity to engage in 'discover the songs' beneath a foreground featuring an iconic and classic guitar. The Découpe concept can be traced back to at least the Dadaists of the 1920s, but was popularised in the late 1950s and early 1960s by writer William S. Burroughs and later employed by David Bowie, Kurt Cobain and Thom Yorke. Each unique Rock’n’Roll Redux design ©2020 David Lloyd.

The St Vincent Signature Guitar is the first electric guitar designed for the female body.

“I wanted to design a tool that would be ergonomic, lightweight, and sleek. There is room for a breast. Or two”.

Annie Clark

"We helped Annie realize the guitar that she had in her head and heart, and allowed her to share it with the world".

Sterling Ball

"When we asked Annie if she had any specific ideas she said, “Let me draw it for you.” I wasn’t expecting what she penciled down, but I instantly loved it. It was completely different, and that excited me. She has terms for it like “memphis,” but I saw disruptive and cool.

Annie seemed happy we didn’t try to convince her to play it safe or influence her concepts. Our job was making her two dimensional sketch into an ergonomically sound, balanced, well-playing guitar without sacrificing the integrity of her design.

About two weeks later, I delivered the first playing prototype in Hollywood. The guitar looked killer, but was a tad small in the body and it needed balance work. We made about 20 prototypes in all, dialing in all of the adjustments in size and balance, electronics, pickups and most importantly – tone. After some back and forth and soul searching, Annie signed off on her prototype.

Annie and I recently reflected on the fact that we introduced a crazy retro design on one hand and a modern, highly playable tone monster on the other! "
