The guitar Mami smashed a long time ago (I can't remember why) was auctioned off shortly after that, but I don't know that she ever really played that guitar. Other than that I don't think they've ever sold any of their own guitars. Maybe someday they will for charity or something.

I know, and like I said I did mean to keep one. But I bought an AV65 Jazzmaster that I had to finance, and I just wasn't playing the Scandal guitars much at all. I just felt like having three guitars sitting around in their gig bags all the time was pointless - that's a lot of money tied up for nothing. I meant to keep one just to collect but the only buyer I managed to attract would only take all three (he was like me six months ago). So I figured if I really wanted one, I could just get another one through Yahoo and pick it up again just like last year. But now that I've had them and let them go, I might be satisfied with the experience of having owned them once. I really like to have guitars that I really play.

They smashed 2 guitars+1 bass (which were used in the PV of Shoujo S) in the photobook of Best Scandal. They auctioned them off on Mobaoku in March 2011.

Haruna's guitar was sold for ¥250,000+ (that was around 3,000USD(!!) back in 2011) (the other 2 were sold for less)

Look what's coming back in March 2016.

The third run of the SCANDAL signature series Squiers. This is from the website of a chain music store called ROCKIN in Japan:



http://www.rockin.co.jp/SCANDAL

And ISHIBASHI and IKEBE-GAKKI have similar announcements too.

No other news from the SCANDAL website nor Fender can be seen as of yet. Watch this space.

Huh. Guess I sold mine at the right time Happy

I might buy another one - I didn't really want to sell all three. Now to decide if I want the Stratomaster or Skullsilver...

Edit: ordered another Skullsilver from Ikebe. Just waiting for them to tell me to pay...

UPDATE ON THE THIRD RUN OF SCANDAL SIGNATURE SQUIERS

To date, these guitars appear to have sold out for online sales at Ikebe-gakki (http://www.ikebe-gakki.com/web-ikebe/squier_scandal-signature/) as the add to cart button is in grey and is unclickable. You may still try e-mailing them as see if they actually have it (overseas customers have to e-mail anyway).

Ishibashi (http://www.ishibashi.co.jp/) has all three guitars clickable on their online shop, but the snag is they don't do direct overseas sales online. Theoretically a deputising service may be able to get them for you.

Guitar Planet (http://www.guitarplanet.co.jp/sp/sea/key_sea/key_sea.cgi) has them too but I'm not sure if they do overseas sales.

Amazon JP used to list them (on behalf of music stores that do their online business via Amazon) but I can't see them at all now.

Good luck!

american standard HSS that mami has cost like 3-5 times more than the signature Squier and thats only a stock strat (she has a mexican made one)

will be too expensive to be marketable

It is an American Std HSS strat but there is no MAMI model I'm afraid.

If you want one, buy the strat in black with a maple fingerboard and get a pro to do the artwork. Because that was what MAMI did - it was never a signature series made by Fender for her. Some surfboard artists (company called Bratz) did the dollops of ice cream on the guitar.

the price of just the base model (Fender American Standard Stratocaster) is heart breaking. i managed to buy a brand new one but it is a (Fender American Special Stratocaster) though the price was the same, i am now hesitant if i should push through replicating the design, because once it fails i'll be crying with the loss of $1,200. but i really wanted to replicate it though hahah any ideas?

just curious tho, could u give me a snapshot of the serial number behind the headstock?

hmm regarding the paint work... i suggest to just bring it to any of the known local luthiers in Philippines, i assume you got some cash and you live in manila anyways so try checking out Guitar hospital in Quezon City or guys like Mike Sison (MICSIS). they might be able to help you out of course would cost ya but they do superb work on custom jobs

owh so you might near his area then
try asking him about it! he did some nice custom guitars from my friends

ahh i was trying to see where the origin of the guitar so i was asking if you have a serial xD but nvm 

in my case tho Jun Castro is just a few steps from my house xD (but he charges quite on a professional level given the quality of his work)

hmmm when i brought it, it was unusable (action too high, neck is too arced) so i immediately had it setup by jun and it was ok to use already.

tho i use mami's jazzmaster as my main guitar (playing live, ETc) i somehow feel better using the silverskull

man indeed us made xD
and the make looks really good as well

playability is good as long as you have its action and truss rod adjusted to proper height (in my case the guitar was adjusted badly when it first came to me so it was really bad)

hmmm im really confused tho hahah i have both and i like playing with both xD
one clear thing i hate about the jazzmaster is the jaguar bridge

its really a pain in the ass to intonate it so if u want easier adjustment just go with the skullsilver, in my opinion both are good guitars tho not as good as their gibsons and fenders. it is a mid tier guitar anyways Happy
