DESCRIPTION:

Mario's Flagship. Mario's Brainchild.

Serpentine -  This short scale guitar made a big splash when Mario Guitars unveiled it at the Summer NAMM Show 2010. Designed and crafted from the ground up to look and feel vintage familiar, but be uniquely new.  With its featherweight paulownia body, 24” scale length, and curvy offset waist, the Serpentine is built to be nimble without compromising tone and playability. It comes in one or two pickup versions.

The Serpentine was the first original model designed and hand-crafted by Mario Martin. This proprietary offset looks and feels vintage-familiar, but with a deceptive originality. The new Serpentine has a featherweight mahogany body, 24 3/4" scale length and curvy offset waist. The Serpentine is built to be nimble without compromising tone or playability. This beast uses the tone power of Lollar PAF humbuckers or mini-humbuckers. This guitar is meant to feel like 60s off sets, but packs plenty of hard rock punch.

This may be Mario's signature model, but feel free to take liberty with the options. Make it as custom as you want, or have Mario build you an original. Either way, you are guaranteed to taste the forbidden fruit of tone!
