Mario Guitars

“Model Z” Serpentine

The Saul Zonana Signature Model.

Saul Zonana is a world-acclaimed artist, guitarist, producer and songwriter. He has worked with some of the biggest names in Rock N’ Roll:  Ace Frehely, Adrian Belew, Crash Test Dummies, Lisa Loeb…..just to name a few.

Hailing from Queens, New York, Saul settled in the Nashville area in 2007. It was not long after making it to the area that Saul made his first steps into Guitar Mill and discovered the joy of Mario Guitars…particularly, the Serpentine model. Since then, Saul has had over half a dozen different Serpentines; each one being a mild tweak of the last, in search of the perfect Saul Zonana Signature model.  After ten years in the making, we have finally narrowed it down.

The “Model Z” Serpentine comes with your choice of flake finish and one of three pick-up configurations that mimic Saul’s personal “Model Z” Serpentines. You can upgrade to 13 pin midi Ghost system, if you think you can handle it!
