THE ERNIE BALL MUSIC MAN MARIPOSA GUITAR

The Mariposa guitar was designed in collaboration with world-renowned Mars Volta and At the Drive-In composer and guitarist Omar Rodríguez-López. The instrument’s innovative design characteristics were engineered specifically for Omar’s playing style. Including the Mariposa’s electronics package, built to accentuate Omar’s love of heavy distortion while retaining all the subtleties of a classic style humbucking pickup configuration.

The all-new Mariposa guitar features a lightweight, okoume body, designed in an offset angular shape, with a roasted maple neck, and ebony fingerboard that showcases its pearlescent block inlays for a unique appearance and playing comfort. This new instrument comes with an ornate, laser-etched pickguard, designed to compliment each specific finish option. Finish options include the Imperial Black and Imperial White with gold hardware for the Standard model, and the Dorado Green and Pueblo Pink with chrome hardware for the Deluxe option.
