They had a third round of the guitars out a few months ago (there is a thread for the official Squier SCANDAL guitars on SH). Looking at the major retailers in Japan online, it appears they have all sold out. If you were looking at Amazon JP then it should be ok as the marketplace tends to be occupied by legit stores (you can check anyway).

Some stores in Asia (HK, S Korea etc) do sell 'em in very limited quantities (each release is pretty much limited in the first place - like a hundred copies per run).

So, it looks like you gotta find one on the second hand/resale market. There are a few on Yahoo! Auctions Japan if you check often enough.

Good luck.

From the guitar stores I've visited occasionally I still see Haruna's guitar on display.

This was in Shibuya/Shinjuku in Tokyo, so for those interested, they should have the stores check their inventory. Timo's bass were the first to be sold out at the last reissue.

But if you look online like rakuten, you can see all 3 squire guitars are still widely available.

When responding to deathclown's query, the only store that 'had' the Stratomaster was one of the Ishibashi branches in Tokyo but it was on hold for another customer.

I did look on Rakuten but the global site - there's a few Skullsilvers knocking about but not the other two.

Anyway - I'll stop here as this is getting out of topic. There is an actual thread for the signature series guitars here: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Probably she uses that guitar for studio/personal purposes only, as you can see [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]but i'm not sure if she owns it.

The same answer as I gave you last year I'm afraid - [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Just a friendly word of advice btw - this is the wrong thread for your query in SH. This thread is for updates on MAMI's guitars, effects and amps.

After seeing the current ish of SOUND DESIGNER, I think it's somewhat safe to say that the Tele is MAMI's as it is parked in her home studio, together with her old "Sticker" Fender Strat.



MAMI's is an Fender American Vintage '64 Telecaster in Lake Placid Blue.



This series is still available in the 2017 catalogue although the Lake Placid Blue finish is not a current option.

The specs as provided by Fender:

SPECS:
Lake Placid Blue 011-1000-802
Body: Alder
Body Shape: Telecaster
Body Finish: (0111000802) New Fender Flash Coat Lacquer
Neck Shape: Mid ’60s “C” Shape
Number of Frets: 21
Fret Size: Vintage Style Frets
Fretboard Radius: 7.25″ (18.41 cm)
Fretboard: Round Laminated Rosewood
Neck Material: Maple
Neck Finish: New Fender Flash Coat Lacquer
Nut Width: 1.650″ (42 mm)
Scale Length: 25.5″ (64.8 cm)
Truss Rods: Vintage-Style Heel Adjust
Pickup Configuration: S/S
Bridge Pickup: New American Vintage ’64 Gray-Bottom Tele Single-Coil Pickup (Bridge)
Neck Pickup: New American Vintage ’64 Gray-Bottom Tele Single-Coil Pickup (Neck)
Pickup Switching: 3-Position Blade: Position 1. Bridge Pickup, Position 2. Bridge and Neck Pickups, Position 3. Neck Pickup
Controls: Master Volume, Master Tone
Hardware: Chrome
Bridge: Original Vintage Style Tele Bridge with 3 Threaded Steel Saddles
String Nut: Bone
Tuning Machines: Single Line “Fender Deluxe” Vintage Style
Switch Tip: “Top Hat” Style Switch Tip
Strings: Fender USA 250R NPS, (.010-.046 Gauges)
Unique Features: Slimmer, more rounded maple neck with “C”-shaped profile and round-laminated rosewood fingerboard with larger pearl dot inlays; All-new pickups wound to period-correct specs and sound, with staggered bridge pickup pole magnets; Threaded steel “barrel” bridge saddles; “Top-hat” switch tip and flat-top knurled chrome control knobs
Case: New Deluxe Vintage Brown Case
Pickguards: 3-Ply White with Vintage Bevel
Included Accessories: Vintage ’64 Tele Strap, Cable, and Cloth; Vintage Wiring Kit, ’60s Tele Information Kit, Bridge Cover, Owner’s Manual, Saddle Height Wrench
Control Knobs: New Knurled Chrome Flat Top

This Tele of MAMI's has a lovely tone, as expected for guitar that retails in the region of USD1700! Have a listen!

Thanks for the scan and info, Kudo. I've updated the first post.

Also, I think basically everyone missed it, but the Lake Placid Blue Tele actually made a brief appearance in the SCAFES guide videos last year, so at that point it probably would have been safe to assume that MAMI does in fact own it. Tongue

I think that Mami's Tele is made by Fender Japan years ago. I found something similar to her guitar while window shopping online:

I actually have seen that 62 Tele online too.

Being a geek, though - I have to beg to differ. The 62 has the spaghetti Fender font but only has TELECASTER in quotes.

MAMI's has an additional line beneath the TELECASTER which has the three design patent numbers, and the AVRI 64 Telecaster has that.

I am prepared to stand corrected of course. Grin

I wonder if any of you eagle-eyed MAMItasu fans noticed the amp she used today in Kumamoto?





(Photos from natalie.mu/ )

It appears to be a Marshall Astoria Dual amp.

They always bring their own gear for their live tours in Japan, so I wonder if MAMI's got herself a new amp setup. Watch this space, I guess.

Yes, that old style sports car look color scheme is pretty eye catching.
Well, for venues with capacity of few hundreds, it makes sense they tour with slimline amps set up this time.
You will also find Haruna is not bringing her EVH III set along as well. No earbleed of those in the front row haha!
It is possible that Marshal ask Mami to give the Astoria a try. When you are famous enough, you get gear for free/to try out.

Interesting, eh?

They've done live house tours before and that never stopped the band lugging their usual gear, but I guess 53 venues until July is a lot of lugging.

The Astoria's pretty high end - hand-wired, sounds lovely and costs a bomb (MAMI's Astoria Dual head in the photos at Kumamoto retails at GBP1999 and the 1x12" cab is GBP450 here in the UK).

SPECS:
WATTAGE: 30W
INPUTS: HI/LO (HI provides +6dB Sensitivity)
CONTROLS: MASTER, EDGE, BASS, MIDDLE, TREBLE, OD VOLUME, OD GAIN, CLEAN VOLUME

SPEAKERS
SIZE: 1 x 12"
OUTPUT POWER: 75W
NAME: CELESTION CREAMBACK
IMPEDANCE: 4 / 8 / 16 Ohm

VALVES
PRE AMP: VALVES 4 x ECC83 (12AX7)
POWER AMP VALVES: 2 x KT66

OTHER
VALVE RECTIFIER
BODY
POWER REDUCTION (5 WATTS) <--THIS I like!!!
LOOP
LOOP LEVEL

A good video explaining the ethos behind the Astoria:

MAMI's gear during the SCABEST47 tour
Posted on Wed Aug 02, 2017 8:34 pm

This Sept's issue of GiGS has the lowdown on the band's live gear at SCABEST47.

Guitar-wise, MAMI used her usual Strat and her Pelham Blue Gibson Les Paul.



The Marshall Astoria (Astria[sic]) Dual amp. MAMI utilises the Astoria as her main amp on the tour when she is not able to use her usual JCM2000 head/cab, and due to the Astoria's dual-channel spec, she gets both her clean and dirty guitar tones from the amp. For the larger venues, MAMI would use the JCM2000 head and 4x12" cab. [Thanks to astuffds for making sense of the kanji!]

MAMI's pedals were almost as it was in 2016, but she placed her BOSS Dynamic Wah where her ZVEX Fuzz Probe was (not necessarily the order in the signal chain though). Where her Dynamic Wah used to be is a Katana Sound distortion pedal (in blue casing):





Did some detective work on Katana Sound  「カタナサウンド」 - M. Takaki is a boutique effects pedal maker which has been around since 2003. Interestingly, he made his pedals for the US market, and only began to sell them in Japan in 2006.  

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Although the mag describes MAMI's Katana Sound as a distortion pedal, but Katana seems to just make overdrive and fuzz pedals. Perhaps with her being a fuzz nut, she might have gotten the Raging Wave fuzz, but I'm merely speculating. Nevertheless, with this being a boutique pedal and as MAMI's pedal looks a bit tatty, I won't be surprised if the blue casing is a variant or a replacement. Reminds me of her rare-as-hen's-teeth boutique Krishna distortion pedal!
