Ernie Ball Music Man Mariposa Guitar, Imperial White, Ebony Fretboard

$3,099.00

Player's Perspective

Music Store Live is proud to offer up this Ernie Ball Music Man Mariposa guitar. They've always been great at building guitars that are functionally familiar, but aesthetically adventurous. This is a prime example of that and we really dig it!

The Mariposa is a thing of beauty and ready to fly to new heights. It's a simple and stripped down guitar, in terms of electronics and controls, and looks like nothing else out there. The two humbuckers are simply controlled by two volume knobs. A simple 3-way pickup selector does exactly what you'd expect it to. But that doesn't mean this guitar is a one-trick pony by any means. The humbuckers do an excellent job of straddling the line between vintage tones and something more aggressive and modern. The pickups will play very nicely with pedals and will hit your amp with some authority, without being so overwound that they only sound good when saturated with heavy gain.

Perfect for the guitarist that doesn't need a lot of bells and whistles but also wants something that looks unique, this Mariposa design is a killer addition to the Music Man lineup.

Manufacturer's Description

The Mariposa features an offset lightweight okoume body, a roasted maple neck, and an ebony fingerboard that showcases pearlescent style block inlays. Electronics include two custom wound EBMM humbucking pickups with separate volume control for each pickup, controlled by a 3-way pickup selector switch that allows for variable humbucking combinations when needed. The pickguard is laser etched with an ornate design coordinated to compliment specific finish options.
