Ladies and gentlemen, what I’m about to tell you might literally make you jump up with joy and make all of your dreams come true.

Earlier this morning, St. Vincent officially announced that she has partnered with Ernie Ball Music Man to release a guitar specifically designed by Annie Clark herself:

In her caption on Instagram Clark mentions that “there is room for breast(s)” which is pretty freaking awesome—because many of us have those. Additionally, the guitar is definitely designed with her own body in mind, “I sought to create a tool that would help and inspire those who share my priorities in a guitar, namely that it be comfortable and lightweight and that it exhibit clean lines, all without sacrificing tone flexibility.”

Ernie Ball adds that “developing the St. Vincent model with Annie has been a highlight of my career,” and goes on to say, “In addition to being one of the finest guitar players I’ve worked with over the past 30 years, she’s equally, if not more, gifted as a guitar designer. I’m incredibly proud Annie chose us to help realize her vision. We’re honored to have her as part of our family.”

Congratulations Ernie Ball Music Man! You are a great example of where the music industry should be heading and the fact that you were smart enough to seek out one of the best guitar players of this time says a lot.
