I'm still searching for info on their acoustics.Can't find Mami's acoustic on Martin's site,the pic is too small for me to see anything else that's useful except for the body shape and the pickguard.

Oh,and Haruna's blog entry only stated that she practised with her acoustic and commented on how cute her acoustic guitar bag was.

Argh! Man, I really thought it was a Martin for sure... I completely didn't see the inlays, they must have been customized for her acoustic. D'oh!

Mami's acoustic could be a Cort, I'm just guessing because it isn't a Martin and it may not resemble an Epiphone although it looks like one. It could be either a Cort or a Yamaha, I'll try to do a little more searching on the Net. I'm sorry my info was a little "aarghh!", but it was as close as I could get at the time.

Nysuke,is that a 1991 limited edition from Takamine?

Porcu,it's okay,at least you're searching for info to help out.

@nysuke: wow, that's spot on! It looks virtually identical to Haruna-chan's guitar, except for the redwood finish that is XD

@Eugene: Thanks for the consolation, man... I wish I had tried harder though but I won't beat myself up about it; btw, could it be possible that Mami's is a Takamine as well? Seeing as how Mami & Haru both use Fender guitars, I think they could share a common interest in the acoustics as well

It could be,but so far when i spotted her pickguard in the Takamine site,it's on a cutaway body,her acoustic has a dreadnought body as we can see.

You're right, I just checked out the Takamine site myself; I'm hoping there's a couple more pics of Mami's acoustic somewhere on the Net so we can finally establish what acoustic she is using. Wow, this is really hard work! Hot

yeah, yeah, yeah, congrats Eugene on your promotion! Clap This must be one hell of a Christmas present for you! LOL, if only I could be as hardworking as you! XD

About the guitars, not to worry my friend! Maybe when there's more pics of Haru & Mami's acoustics then we can establish what guitar model they are; patience is a virtue after all Nice One

Smurfs? LOL, I always keep forgetting that they are teenage girls! LOL
Tomo-chi is still a little unsure of how to properly mod and maintain her instruments so let's be patient with her, eh? XD

Yeah, kinda stands out doesn't it? I think the sticker is just a novelty item, another example of why we love the girls: because of their spontaneity XD Too bad she can't do the same with her basses now BLEH!

Fantastic stuff on the acoustic guitars, I can't believe Haru-chan's using a Takamine 1991 Limited Edition acoustic! How she managed to procure it since it's discontinued? She must have a lot of contacts or she splurged a lot of money on this XD
So Mami's Gibson is a Les Paul double cutaway? LOL I didn't know that either, thanks for updating the info! How much do you think it would cost in Japan?

The Takamine wouldn't cost too much in my opinion,even though it's discontinued i'm sure Haruna or the guys working for SCANDAL can get her whatever model she wants as long as it's not a ridiculous request.They are in the music industry,after all.The Gibson will cost more i think,but not all that expensive too,maybe say,1k plus to 2k at the most in Sing Dollars?

I would love to get my hands on that Takamine for sure, but since Singapore is "money also pay more lah" it would be available at an exorbitant price XP
Man, no wonder our music scene is so sucky.... Stars
And if the Gibson double cutaway is available anywhere in Singapore I would buy it no matter the price... urgh this country also can die one Silence

or
is a modified version of these:

(picture on the left is Ibanez SR400FLBK, right Ibanez GSR180BS)

@hamatori: you mean if it's a customized bass? Maybe, but considering Tomo-chi had this bass round the Shiroten days I would think that it's probably either a second-hand or given to her by a friend/relative/etc; looking closely at Tomo's bass I noticed the mid pickup has been customized to probably a humbucking pickup, perhaps it's modded after all never mind that the body's colour scheme is sunburst? I apologize if I'm second-guessing myself guys

Hmmm hamatori thanks for reminding i completely missed out that bass.School work....Aight i ain't blaming anyone but myself. Shy

But as you can see,i did not do much elaboration on their instruments used during their shiroten days,as those instruments are what i call "stand-in instruments",when they make it big like now they'll upgrade their instruments and put those aside for sentimental (Shunkan hahahah Sweating ) value.

That said,it's still a bass that Tomomi used!So i'm going to update the thread and dig out the info on the bass.....tomorrow.It's 1.59am,i'm supposed to be sleeping and my project should've been half done 3 hours ago.Instead i'm doing the project now and i'm still on SCANDAL Heaven lurking anywhere and everywhere and i'm hungry and that stupid bowl of cereal only made me hungrier and.....This talk is getting nowhere.

Yeah so i'll update tomorrow when i have more time. Frustrated

LOL Eugene, I feel you man! You aren't the only one so hang in there and cheer up, man!
Peace Onion
Maybe I can help out a little: the bass in question that Tomo-chi used during her Shiroten days is an Ibanez GSR 180 and more details here: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Haruna used this in a performance in some kind of a temple not too long ago...
Is it the same with before but different with finish?
