Signature electric guitar with distinctive style and Custom Artist pickups

The Sterling by Music Man Mariposa Imperial White offers, at a surprisingly attractive price, all the features of the characterful offset-electric guitar developed in close collaboration with Omar Rodríguez-López of At the Drive-In and The Mars Volta.

STERLING BY MUSIC MAN Mariposa Imperial White
Distinctive in style and sound, the Sterling by Music Man Mariposa was developed in collaboration with Omar Rodríguez-López of At the Drive-In and The Mars Volta.

Distinctive offset design

Despite its striking offset design, which skilfully plays with the alternation between angular and soft lines, the Sterling by Music Man Mariposa electric guitar convinces with comfortable playing characteristics. The Nyatoh body sits surprisingly comfortably against the player, whereby the wide Cutaway together with the round neck heel facilitates access to the high registers of the fivefold bolted Roasted-Maple neck. The slim neck profile also creates agile playing characteristics, so that every riff and solo comes off the rosewood fingerboard with ease.

Custom Artist pickups, reliable Hardware

At the guitar amp, the Mariposa's two Sterling by Music Man Custom Artist humbuckers provide top-notch clean and overdrive tones that respond to playing style with lively dynamics and present expressive licks and riffs with harmonic punch. The pickups are controlled by a straightforward 3-way circuit with two volume controls. Last but not least, a Sterling by Music Man 2-point tremolo and robust locking tuners complete the Mariposa Dorado Green by Sterling by Music Man.
