    Hahahahahahaha, that's a great way of putting it Jeff. Only time will tell, maybe Dargin can share when it finally drops.

    Someone just commented and it was something else I missed, they have reverse head stocks 2 over 4 :O.

    Yep. The near-symmetry of the EBMM headstock means it's only a small variation, but It's a cool variation, imo. I think one would look great hanging on my wall, right next to my og Vincent Blue.

    Yeah, like the Morse Darklord had.

    EBMM reposted the pic on Twitter earlier today, and I noticed it then - the reversed headstock. Looks like they put a left-handed neck on a right-handed body.

    I actually like the original pickguard, but the new ones look cool, too. I will stick with my original St. Vincent (Polaris White, full rosewood neck) and St. Vincent HH (Charcoal Sparkle) for life. That said, if they made changes to the sound as well, then maybe I could talk myself into an additional pair that will cause me to kick something else out of the collection.

I've yet to find a setting that can overpower the string-to-string separation or introduce grating, harsh frequencies that jump out. Everything is very controlled and that's really the only reason I've kept mine totally stock. I'd be mighty interested to add another one and swap in some brighter pups (or just 500k pots).
    Maybe 300K? That is kinda odd, since just about everyone uses 500K pots with minis. But I guess that's what St. Vincent wanted. Not really a big thing to modify thankfully.

    I kinda like the original pickguard, but this is a cool variant. The reverse headstock is a nice quirky twist. I wonder if they’ll be doing the same changes with the SBMM line, or wait a year or two.

    I have to say, I really like Annie Clark’s design sensibilities. Her guitars are pretty damn cool, aesthetically and feature-wise.

    Oh, for sure that's how she wanted it. And if you listen to how she uses guitar - almost like a controller for effects- it makes sense that she'd gravitate towards a base sound without a ton of character of its own. The special sauce tends to come later in the signal chain for her, and that can react poorly to an instrument with a really strong baked-in sound.

    That's pretty much where I land too.

    oooh! "Custom Music Man Gold Foil Mini Humbuckers". Also, looks like the control layout is a standard 3 pickup type, so no "all three together" position.

    I noticed that they still have the original St Vincent listed though. I wonder if they are going to have both models concurrently?
