Hello every one my name is goodyear
(Actually my name is pridi its mean Goodyear in Thai) , I'm new here  
Hello!
Let me introduce my music profile and about this guitar saga (hahaha)
I start played electric guitar at grade 7 with ibanez like model and tele start model i had never have and thought about to play Lespaul

But This year I really bore with  24.5 scale length and tone of guitar that I have
And Mami’s Lespaul with Pelhambule color start to attracting me to find likes one
Mami lespaul replica project  Aaaeaa10
I searched for Pelham top Lespaul model for a few months and It seem to be hopeless actually I found one sold on reverb.com and this is same model that Mami use (Gibson Lespaul re 57) but i cant afford it and shipping from Great Britain to Thailand will be expensive and difficult
Mami lespaul replica project  Untitl11

Luckily! I found Thai guitar brand with private custommade options they have good quality factory and I can customize color ! And most important thing its cheap for this spec
But It’s still have problems because they use computer to mix color and they have Minimum order ( 3 order ) I had find people who want to join my party (also Thailand scandal fan group) for a mouth a lot of people interested but have no one to join my party
Down-hearted Wahhh!

But! Several week later
I received message form Brand Owner, he got few people interest this color.!
Like a miracle hahaha (but in several week that I gave up I bought some guitar for encourage myself so I seem to be broke now hahaha  
  Yay! Best night ever Can't take it

Here is spec
Body            :3 piece mahogany
Neck            :1 piece mahogany (not scraf joint)
Fingerboard  :rosewood
Fret & inlay   :22 frets abalone gibson style inlay
Headstock    :gibson style with grover style tuning pegs
Color           :pelhamblue polyurethane (computer mix) (╹◡╹)
About this brand
This brand is Thailand house brand name Lavish (Its mean mania, seem suitable for me  Mami lespaul replica project  1f601 )I really trust this brand because I bought a few guitar form this brand before and they all impressive

All those spec are pretty impressive because its cost about 300 usd.( ^∀^) With factory quality paint job, because my paint skill very bad I really happy to not paint it by myself
But its have several thing I have to change by my self example jack plate ,tuning pegs ,pick up (maybe) ,headstock paint
I will receive this guitar in end of this month
Yay!  Yay!
here is some picture form china factory before install pickguard

Understood!  Nice

Yay! Another SH fan who loves SCANDAL-related guitars.

You are indeed right about having the paint mixed using a computer. The actual Pelham Blue code by DuPont used by the American car companies in the 50s-60s is a bit darker than the Gibson Pelham Blue. Like you, I did a LP MAMI project earlier this year as I couldn't afford to fork out money for an R7 (and they are very rare!). The guy who did the finish was working on an actual Pelham Blue Gibson Firebird and the paint company he used scanned the Firebird and the paint was accurate. He used nitrocellulose, as what Gibson would have used on MAMI’s.

I note that you are opting to use Grovers but MAMI’s LP has Klusons as it’s a 57, then again I guess you chose Grovers due to personal preference.

Looking forward to see the finished LP. 

If you are interested, you can check out the pics of my LP project in this SH thread here - https://www.scandal-heaven.com/t1480p350-the-instruments-thread

You know what - I am just like you. I have no idea what strap that is. Initially I thought it was Levy's (a Canadian brand) just because it was brown but it is not.

Then suddenly that brown patch is gone and now we have that grey/black thing.

This is an interesting bit - I saw a SCANDAL cover by a Japanese fan on Twitter and he had a white strap with the brown patch just like MAMI's. My Japanese isn't good - but I did ask but I didn't get an answer.

I also know someone in Tokyo who pretty much is in the guitar industry - showed him MAMI's photo and he said he's never seen a strap with that logo before.

What I have is the nearest thing I could get which is a white strap with black binding. It happens to be a faux leather strap (just happened to be) from RightOn! - https://www.rightonstraps.com/en/guitar-bass-straps-mojo

That's the best I could do. To think that I pretty much got my Les Paul 99% (I did buy the Gibson pointers for the knobs but I decided against installing them for fear of damaging the nitro lol) bang on looks-wise, I should be happy.

I just buy knob pointers, actually I like polyurethane color than Nitro cellulose b/c its tough than nitro so much I like to keep my guitar glossy and shine But sometime I do like nitro in relic guitars
I think we should to create article about what gear we use what preset , amp setting to jam or make video cover its will be good for newbie player
Hmm

Talking about colours, out of interest - I was wondering why you went for a faded Pelham Blue (which seems to be on a few guitars in the current Gibson catalogue at the moment), as seen on the Lavish photo?

That photo of MAMI you used had her LP appear like that because of the yellow stage lights, and as you see from the photo you used to show her strap, you can see her LP's Pelham Blue isn't faded.

______________

There is a thread in an attempt to discuss amp / pedal setups for songs here on SH but not much response:

https://www.scandal-heaven.com/t12213-scandal-s-guitar-tone-how-do-you-get-yours

Perhaps we can liven it up again (use the thread and don't start another one)?

I think its b/c color collection of computer mixer or just light and tone of phone that he use to take photo
But I’m pretty sure its a little fade or lighter than original pelham but Im still ok with result I think its doesn’t fade as epiphone or gibson modern LP (i hope haha) for sure. I have too see it with my own eyes

I am so not a pro musician. Just a hobbyist and err... to paraphrase a SCANDAL song title, a happy collector.

Great! And the colour is correct - it was likely that the previous photo was taken with some yellow-ish light or something.

To complete this, gold top hat knobs, black backplates and Kluson machine heads.

And a white strap.
