The Mars Volta’s Omar Rodríguez-López lets loose
on his Ibanez ORM1 Jet King signature model,
which has a 24" scale that he prefers because he
has small hands. The guitar features a single
Seymour Duncan Little ’ 59 pickup, and he strings
it with Ernie Ball .013-.056 nickel-wound sets.
At this gig, Rodríguez-López played the same
guitar through a Orange Rockerverb 50 2x12
combo for the entire set.
