– Condition: 8/10
– Fret wear: None
– Any wear of note: There’s a ding/chip on the back in the tummy cut and 2 on the bottom side of the guitar. There’s also a couple of very small light dings, one on the back of the lower horn and one just on the tummy cut, that are very minor and aren’t very noticeable but are pictured as best as possible. But it’s still in overall amazing shape! The backplate and neck plate still have the plastic on them. Includes a padded gig bag (Does NOT include a whammy bar).
Designed in collaboration with Omar Rodríguez-López, the Mariposa is a true stunner. The guitar’s unique body shape is eye-catching, but there is more than meets the eye with the Mariposa. Featuring a roasted neck, locking tuners, 3-way switching, and two humbucking pickups controlled by separate volume knobs, this guitar has endless tonal options.
OFFSET SIGNATURE DESIGN
The Mariposa’s eye-catching offset body was designed in close collaboration with Omar Rodríguez-López, the genre-bending composer and guitarist of Mars Volta and At the Drive-In.
CUSTOM ARTIST PICKUPS
Just like Omar’s playing, the Mariposa’s custom dual humbucking pickups are dynamic. This guitar comes with two volume pots, one for controlling each pickup.
ROASTED MAPLE NECK
The Mariposa features a smooth roasted maple neck and locking tuners for maximum playability and tuning stability.
