As far as I can see they are still listed in the Fender JP site. Guitar stores in Japan are likelier to be in the know - therefore, I think that info you got should be reliable. Unlike the cheaper Squier sigs, I don’t see these selling like hot cakes as much due to multiple (possible) factors one of which is the price. They are easily found in the resale market too possibly due to buyer’s remorse... 😅

The seller didn’t offer an alternative courier service (eg FEDEX)?

Could anyone point me to where I could get a Haruna Tele (preferably brand new, not used) from a reliable source? 

As kudo_maharizu said above, used to see many listings of it (both new and used) on eBay and Amazon, but they all seem to be gone now when I've finally made space to buy it  SCANDAL's Signature Fender Models - Page 4 1f625 (save for one listing on eBay  but description seems to indicate visible wear and tear?)  

Perhaps Japanese fans are also hearing of the sigs being discontinued and buying the Haru Tele and Tomomi P-bass up. Though still see quite a few of Mami's Strat listings.

Try Rakuten - I checked just this minute there are four of them.

I dropped by the site for ikebe where I bought them when they were first released - nothing left! They were in stock for more than a year but not anymore.

Good luck!

I don't know what country you're in, but here are two options for you to consider:

Whenever I buy gear on-line I like to go through Reverb.com or Sweetwater.com (but Sweetwater won't have this one).

I love Reverb - a blessing, and a pain at the same time. 

Interesting to see that the Tele on that Reverb ad is from the UK. The UK isn’t exactly a hotbed for Japanese artist signature guitars.

BTW not sure if you were recommending those sites to steadystate or actually pointing out those actual guitars because both of them are no longer available.

@steadystate - I think I know where you’re at, reading your past posts. Swee Lee KL had it just this February. Unfortunately both KL and SG stores no longer have it in stock. Still no harm in making enquiries. Good luck! (I bought my TOMOMI bass in KL  as at that time there was a ban on rosewood affecting import of guitars from Japan to the UK)

Thank you both kudo_maharizu and Don Dio for all your help!  SCANDAL's Signature Fender Models - Page 4 1f600 Swee Lee was the very first place I enquired at earlier this year, but they said they had no idea when they'd get stock and would inform me when they did. I was ok to just continue to wait, until peaceharu posted above about the series being discontinued end 2020 and that got me panicky cos that's just 4 months away lol.

I don't know why the Rakuten listings never came up before in my previous searches  SCANDAL's Signature Fender Models - Page 4 1f605 , but now that I know of them will definitely try to buy from there and have one shipped! Fingers crossed! SCANDAL's Signature Fender Models - Page 4 1f600

No worries.

A bit academic here but since Swee Lee has a presence in both countries, if they have it in stock in KL there shouldn't be any issues of them the SG HQ getting the guitar across.

Re: RAKUTEN - the global market they used to do has changed slightly now and they offer a middleman service similar to that to FromJapan dot com. When I buy my stuff, I use FromJapan which has RAKUTEN listed as one of the portals I can do my online shopping from.

The middleman page for overseas buyers - https://globalexpress.rakuten.co.jp/

RAKUTEN Ichiba the marketplace. BTW there are now THREE pieces available - https://search.rakuten.co.jp/search/mall/scandal+haruna+fender/

Enjoy.

At least two of the large musical instrumentalist chains I've used in Japan also deal with overseas customers:

I've to correct you slightly there. While it's true Ishibashi deals with overseas orders, it is only for second hand guitars. Been looking at their stuff for years now. ikebe on the other hand sells you both new and second hand instruments, and I have bought more than just SCANDAL-related stuff from them.

BTW as I had posted earlier, ikebe doesn't have any of the SCANDAL Fender sigs except for one MAMI red Strat in stock anymore.

They've got RINA Pearl drum sticks or the SCANDAL Vital Audio guitar cables if anyone is interested.

Thank you SCANDAL's Signature Fender Models - Page 4 1f603 

If anyone is also wondering: seems the Rakuten listings are all for pre-order. When I enquired at another Japanese site that was also taking pre-orders, the seller replied to say there will be new stock in December (presumably the very last batch before the series is discontinued) but to get one you'll have to pre-order now. 

I don't know whether this means there's too much demand such that to get one you have to reserve it, or there's too little demand such that sellers aren't willing to order it without any pre-orders. Lol.

I think i was also affected by this, since the store like ran out of stocks "suddenly" (i really don't know how and why haha this is so frustrating) and said their store can only get 5 guitars on the last batch.

So, peaceharu - your order is still “out there”? Gosh, it’s been ages. I hope they’ve not taken your money yet.

I don’t know about all of you but if this is the case go for the resale market. What’s a little mark on the bodywork (adds character IMHO). Of course, don’t buy it if the neck’s broken but resale guitars are fine, really.

Swee Lee just published an interview with Scandal here a few days ago. The band members talk about their Signature Fenders (nothing we don't already know) but Haruna also mentions her new Acoustasonic.

imo the timing of this interview is really weird lol cos Swee Lee has been carrying those guitars since 2018 but only chose to get Scandal to talk about them now, just before the series is going to be discontinued  SCANDAL's Signature Fender Models - Page 4 1f602

Just an update on the stock, as I had some fans asking for an update.

On the Fender Japan website:
Haruna and Mami fender are out of stock.
Tomomi fender is still available.

Many of the retailers are now dwindling in stock, currently Haruna's Telecaster seems to be fewer in stock.




Ishibashi has a Fender sale which includes Mami's
Haruna/Tomomi's are not in this promotion.

MAMI STRATOCASTER 115,000yen Include tax
