The refreshed 2023 Goldie features a nyatoh body, roasted maple neck with a reverse headstock and a rosewood fingerboard. A trio of gold foil mini humbuckers and 5-way switching offer a unique range of tonal options while familiar favourites, such as custom inlays, locking tuners, and control knobs pay tribute to the original St. Vincent signature guitar design. Players can also choose between a Velveteen or Cashmere finish for this year’s model.

The guitar retails for $829.99.

Cutlass CT50 Plus
