MUSIC MAN Mariposa Deluxe Imperial White

Signature Electric Guitar with Custom Wound Pickups and Modern Tremolo, Case Included

The Music Man Mariposa Deluxe Imperial White was developed in collaboration with Mars Volta guitarist Omar Rodríguez-López and has proven to be a first-class rock guitar with a sensational offset design. The guitar maker from San Luis Obispo relies on a lightweight Okoumé body and a five-piece roasted maple neck which, thanks to its pleasant wax-oil finish, guarantees optimum playability via the 22-fret ebony fingerboard. On the guitar amplifier, two Music Man Custom Wound Humbuckers provide accentuated sounds that reproduce subtle nuances even with juicy distortion. Last but not least, the Music Man Mariposa features the sleek Music Man Modern tremolo with chic Chevron cover and precise Schaller M6-IND locking tuners.

MUSIC MAN Mariposa Deluxe Imperial White
The Music Man Mariposa Deluxe Imperial White was developed with Omar Rodríguez-López of The Mars Volta and At the Drive-In as a rock guitar with chic design and hot sound.
MUSIC MAN Mariposa Deluxe Imperial White Back
The Sculpted-Neck-Joint of the Okoumé body allows unhindered playability over the entire roasted maple neck of the Music Man Mariposa.

Premium wood selection and offset-design

For the Music Man Mariposa, Omar Rodríguez-López wanted a modern offset design that combines angular elements with a perfect balance on the belt and thigh. In addition to the okoumé body, a stable and fivefold bolted neck made of roasted maple and an ebony fingerboard are used. The Music Man Mariposa also offers perfect playing conditions from the lowest to the highest position thanks to the rounded neck foot and pleasant wax-oil finish on the back of the neck.

MUSIC MAN Mariposa Deluxe Imperial White Body
Two Music Man Custom Wound humbuckers with straight-line 3-way circuitry promise first-class distortion sounds with detailed reproduction of all playing accents.

Music Man Custom Wound pickups

The electric sound conversion of theMusic Man Mariposa Deluxe Imperial White is done by two Music Man Custom Wound Humbuckers, whose sound character has been perfectly tuned to the needs of Omar Rodríguez-López. Accordingly, the guitar amp provides powerfully accentuated distortion sounds for modern rock styles. Despite the juicy output, the pickups also feature a detailed reproduction 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 pickup is also available for tuning the timbre.

MUSIC MAN Mariposa Deluxe Imperial White Headstock
The back of the Music Man neck comes with a pleasant wax-oil finish, while the high-gloss lacquered headstock is equipped with Schaller Locking tuners for precise and stable tuning.

High quality hardware in gold

In addition, the Music Man Mariposa Deluxe Imperial White convinces with high-quality gold-plated hardware equipment, which in combination with the white finish and the ornamental pickguard skillfully underlines the character of the electric guitar. The smooth Music Man Modern tremolo with steel string riders serves as a bridge on the body. The chevron cover not only offers a striking look, but also a pleasant contact surface for the ball of the thumb. Behind the compensated saddle, which supports optimum intonation of all strings, Schaller M6-IND Locking Tuners also ensure clean and stable tuning even when the vibrato lever is used extensively.
