Brand new in original factory packaging. Z String Music® is an Premium SBMM dealer and you will have a full manufacturer's warranty. Note photos are provided by SBMM and wood grain (on the neck in this case) will vary naturally across instruments. We were blown away by how nice this guitar is in person.

Sterling by Music Man wants you to know:

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.



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.


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.


The Mariposa features a smooth roasted maple neck and locking tuners for maximum playability and tuning stability.
