Product information - Mariposa (Imperial White)

Music Man Omar Rodríguez-López Signature Mariposa (Imperial White) Electric Guitar

The Music Man Mariposa (Imperial White) is a beautiful 6-String Electric Guitar, created in collaboration with Mars Volta and At the Drive-In Guitarist Omar Rodríguez-López. This lavish Instrument has proven to be a first-class rock Guitar with a sensational Off-Set design. A lightweight Okoume Body and 5-piece Roasted Maple Neck (including Gunstock Oil finish) guarantees optimum playability via the 22-fret Ebony Fingerboard. 2x Music Man Custom Wound Humbuckers provide accentuated sounds through the Amplifier that reproduce subtle nuances even with ample Distortion. The Mariposa features the sleek Music Man Modern Tremolo Bridge with chic Chevron cover and precision Schaller M6-IND Locking Tuners.

Premium Wood Selection in Off-Set Design

Omar Rodríguez-López wanted a modern Off-Set design for the Mariposa, one that combines angular elements with a perfect balance on the belt and thigh. In addition to the Okoume Body, a stable and 5-fold Bolted Neck made of Roasted Maple and an Ebony Fingerboard are used. The Mariposa also offers perfect playing conditions from the lowest to the highest position thanks to the rounded neck shape and slick wax-oil finish on the reverse of the neck.

Custom Wound Pick-Ups

The electric sound conversion of the Mariposa is handled by 2x Music Man Custom Wound Humbuckers, whose sound character has been perfectly tuned to the preference of Omar Rodríguez-López. Once heard through an Amplifier, the Mariposa provides powerfully accentuated Distortion sounds for modern Rock styles. Despite the juicy output, the Pick-Ups also reproduce a detailed sound image of subtle playing nuances, so that there are no limits to expressive riffing and virtuoso solo work. A 3-Way Circuit with separate Volume Controls for each Pick-Up is also available for fine-tuning the tone.

High-Quality Hardware

The Music Man Mariposa easily convinces with high-quality Gold-Plated Hardware, which in combination with the Imperial White Finish and the ornamental Pickguard skilfully underlines the character of the Instrument. The smooth Music Man Modern Tremolo Bridge includes the exquisite Vintage Bent Steel Saddles and a Chevron Cover. The Cover not only offers a striking look, but also a pleasant contact surface for the ball of the thumb. Between the compensated Saddle (which support optimum intonation of all strings) and the Schaller M6-IND Locking Tuners, stable tuning is ensured, even when the Vibrato Lever is used extensively.
