The guitar pictured is the actual guitar you will receive!
At The Farm, we take actual pictures of each instrument and make sure they are fully set-up and ready to play before we ship them. Each instrument goes through a multi-point inspection, followed by a set-up process by our in-house tech staff. We then photograph each instrument with high-quality equipment in our on-site photography studio. We know that details like wood grain and color finishes can vary, so we want you to be able to see, to the best of our ability, exactly what you will be receiving.
This process takes over an hour for each instrument - from inspection to pictures. We care about the instrument we put into your hands! Rest assured your guitar was not just plucked off of a shelf and drop-shipped to you from a warehouse without care.
Designed in conjunction with former Mars Volta band leader and At The Drive In guitarist, Omar Rodríguez-López, the Mariposa is an alternative guitar player's lucid dream realized.
Built around a truly unique body shape that can happily take center stage or kick back as a stunning background accent, this guitar has got the looks - but don't judge this book by the cover...glamour is only the frontage of it's power wielding puissance.
The Mariposa's full prowess starts to bloom when noticing the bolt-on Roasted Maple neck with a toneful Nyatoh body, the Rosewood fretboard and the dual humbucker configuration.
Loaded with dual custom-designed Mariposa humbucking pickups, which allow for an enormous range of dynamics, and can be dialed in perfectly with the separate volume controls and 3-way selector switch, making this guitar ready to pump out the best tones you can possibly conjure up.
Keeping the Mariposa guitar in tune are the locking tuners, while the vintage-style string-through tremolo bridge allows for increased resonance, increase intonation, tuning stability, as well as accent chords and solos with tremolite-vibrato.
Topped off in a stunning Dorado Green finish with a matching headstock, white pearloid block inlays, chrome hardware and a 3-ply white pickguard, this guitar is ready to break all the rules.
