No, I'm pretty sure that's a Stingray. You can kind of tell by looking at the pic and then the bass picture by itself.

yeah, I try a further search, and found this one, 
It looks more similar to TOMO new bass, I can't find it on MusicMan official site, someone said that is a Stingray 4 20th Anniversary, made in 1992. It is a limited with only 1400 unit produced.Nerd 


If it's really match to her new bass, then I wonder how she get such a rare bass like this one, it is super cool!!LOVE

Maybe their management told them "Buy whatever the piece of new gear you like for the coming tour!"
Btw, beautiful bass + beautiful bassist = Perfect!

I think I agree with you. From the photo with Timo in it, her Stingray's maple top looks quilted. The Anniversary Stingray has a dark red-ish/tortoiseshell-ish pickguard, though - then again, from the photo of Timo playing it, we can't really tell. Hope to see more photos of it!

This is from the same source the provided the info on Mami's new LP.
Maybe a translation on Tomomi's part will help? Happy

My translation:

My StingRay that I debuted this tour. The top of the body is a quilted maple and the back is mahogany. It's a gem that's equipped with a 3-band active preamp on one pickup and outputs a strong, crisp sound.

According to the musicman website, the 20th anniversary basses was made in 1996 and approximately only 1250 were made. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
I really do want to know how Tomo managed to get her hands on one of these. The sound on these basses are amazing! They have a fairly aggressive tone (awesome for slap bass) but also have a warm vintage jazzy sound.

Well, nothing wrong with it being second hand - it is a limited edition bass. Only 1250 exists on the planet. And if it plays/sounds very good, any pro musician would want one!

^^ Agreed! Plus, it wouldn't be that hard to do some extra touch-ups where needed to make it look and sound like the pro instrument it is.

if it is second hand item, I would think that how much did Tomo spend to get that bass guitar and I think that the owner must be proud by selling a second hand item to a Artist with big amount of cash Happy

Lately I've seen this artifact on Timo's rig. Anyone knows what is it?


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

EDIT: Just found it :D It is an Avalon U5 preamp. It is used to "warm things up". I've watched a lot of videos, but barely noted any difference in the sound when this thing it's on. It's more an studio tool, but many people uses it live.

I saw this photo in social media a few months back:



The photo made the rounds because of her saucy Perri's Leathers strap but what piqued my interest as well (*koff*) was the Jazz bass - it's black with a grey/black tortoiseshell pickguard. This Jazz bass is not in the list on this thread's first post. Tried Google, and going thru my magazines - no luck. Nope, not trawled thru all the live performances on SCANDAL Media (I have a day job).

I know - I did think whether this is Yuusuke-kun and if the shadow is so dark that the bass looks black. But just wondering nonetheless.

Any eagle-eyed/guitarspotting S-H members have any ideas if this is a new bass, or new old bass (heh). The Perri's strap is a gift from MAMItasu if I am not mistaken, so this bass is likely hers and not something from a studio.

PS: I cannot tell from looking at her hair, which era of the band this photo was taken in - perhaps that can help 'date' the guitar.

@maharizm:
Yeah, I've seen that bass guitar around. It makes random appearances every so often. So I'm quite certain it's not Yuusuke-kun. The straps helps too. While Tomomi has used one of those straps with the Penthouse models on them, it's not that one with the film-strip kind of design; it was more of a collage design.

And for what era is what from, I recognize the shirt! It's a tour shirt from their Dreamer tour back in 2011. With slight squinting and tilting of the head, I can make out a side of the tour's treble cleff logo haha.

I don't really know much else about it though :S

I have found a little bit more on the 'mystery' Jazz bass - this is from the BABY ACTION Band Score:



It's a Fender American Deluxe Jazz Bass. I thought of pasting the specs from the Fender website but it appears the 2014 version is way different! But being in the Deluxe series would have obviously implied a higher spec than the American Standard. There is a short caption and anyone who could decipher the kanji - we could do with some help. Onegaishimasu! ^^

It appears that TIMO did use it in a somewhat official capacity albeit briefly during this era.

Yay! I think we can almost close the case on this one.
Maybe we can get Jade to translate the caption. *hint, hint, nudge, nudge* Happy

haha here you go, guys:

This is a substitute Jazz bass that has the same specs as my red one. Like the red one, the pick guard has been replaced with a black pearl one. The pickups are Samarium Cobalt Noiseless.

No worries, Lexian. Just to let you know - I have all the band scores, and apart from SCANDAL SHOW, the books have a short blurb on all their gear - pretty much in the format we see in GO!GO!GUITAR or GiGS. Now, you've done a good job in chronicling what gear they own according to year/album, but if we've got any of the band's gear unaccounted for like this Jazz Bass, would you like me to scan the relevant section like the one above?

thoseguiltyeyes wrote:haha here you go, guys:

Wow - that was fast. Thanks a lot, Jade!



Here's a blurb on SCN from Wiki:

The Samarium Cobalt Noiseless series (SCN) is another line of replacement stacked electric guitar and bass pickups, designed by Bill Lawrence. Introduced in 2004, they are similar to the Vintage Noiseless pickups, but employ miniaturized samarium cobalt alloy magnets instead of Alnico 5. The SCN pickups were a standard equipment feature on the American Deluxe series from 2004 to 2010.

Tim_E.D wrote:what year of American Deluxe Jazz Bass?

The above wiki should answer your question in part. BABY ACTION was out in 2011, as was that photo of the Dreamers Tour that Lexian described above. An educated guesstimate would place it in a Jazz Bass that is at most a 2010 model. The American Deluxe Series guitars have N3 Noiseless pups following 2010.
