    No, there is not a forearm contour, but there is a very comfortable body contour on the back of the guitar.

    I gave it a QC when it arrived and the independent volume controls are pretty cool. I haven't had time to A/B it with anything yet, but hopefully get the chance in another day or two.

    No, that's a reflection of the case lid.

    I really like it but I’ll have to sell one to buy one. Or wait awhile.

    Well, in the promo photo where Omar is holding a white righty, there's a pink lefty propped up in the background behind him. And there's another shot of him on stage playing a white righty. But on their product page, it says "Left Handed: no".

    I really REALLY like the design. I had always been on the fence over the St Vincent model, as I don't quite get along with the design. This though, I like. It's right along the lines of guitars like the firebird and other things to come out of the 60s. Great retro design with modern appointments.

    They're both reminscent of Firebirds to me. St. V's even moreso (maybe because of the pickups). I didn't really think this about the Mariposa until seeing that AMS vid above where it's at an angle.

    I gotta hand it to the signature artists and MM designers though. Somehow their signature models always capture the personality of the artist. Yet are neutral and cool enough for others too.

    When did they last have them?

    I like the normal cases.. I just wish they felt more heavy duty.
