Originality has always been a part of Music Man's appeal, and their new Mariposa model is a fresh and stylish offset that is sure to stand out from the crowd! Collaboratively designed with renowned Mars Volta/At the Drive-In guitarist Omar Rodriguez-Lopez, the Mariposa is indicative of the American musician's eccentricity, featuring an angular body shape adorned with a laser-etched ornate engraved pickguard.

Aesthetics aside, the Music Mariposa is a versatile workhorse that is built for performing with. Featuring the highly-playable signature Music Man neck profile, the Mariposa is also fitted with stainless steel frets, powerful custom humbuckers, Schaller locking tuners and a smooth tremolo system.

Body & Neck

Music Man's Mariposa model sports a lightweight African Mahogany body, making the instrument comfortable to wield on-stage without losing any of the rich lows and sizzling mids that are synonymous with this tonewood. With an ergonomic belly cut too, the Mariposa feels great to play in a sitting position for lengthy practice or recording sessions.

The Mariposa's Mahogany body is paired with a bolt-on Roasted Maple neck; a material that is becoming increasingly popular with modern guitarists. While the Maple ensures vibrant highs and plenty of upper mid-range bite, the roasting process removes moisture from the wood. This gives the neck extra stability and strength, making it less susceptible to movement in different climates.

Hardware & Electronics

Premium tonewoods give the Mariposa a high-end vibe, but its hardware also plays a big part. Fitted with a Music Man tremolo system, this beautifully-machined bridge feels wonderfully smooth under the right hand and provides excellent feedback from the arm. And if you're worried about tuning stability, please don't fret! That's because the Music Man Mariposa is equipped with a set of Schaller locking tuners - sure to keep your tuning rock-solid.

The retro styling of the Music Man Mariposa may be slightly deceiving, as this instrument features a set of powerful custom Music Man humbucking pickups. Crystal-clear with cleans, things really get cooking when you add some raunchy overdrive or high-gain distortion. Able to retain lots of clarity, these punchy pickups excel with practically any sound you throw their way!
