Gibson Custom Shop 1957 Les Paul Standard Reissue (Pelham Blue)

Fender MAMI STRATOCASTER OMOCHI (Vintage White)
(August 21, 2021 - Present)

This new Stratocaster debuted during SCANDAL's 15th anniversary concert in 2021.

On June 11, 2022, this model was officially announced as MAMI's new signature model guitar and offered for preorder, releasing on Aug. 21, 2022.

MAMI's comments about the guitar via the official announcement:

Since the tones of SCANDAL's songs are expanding, I wanted one guitar that could handle it all - That's why this "MAMI STRATOCASTER OMOCHI" was made. This time I chose a Stratocaster equipped with a humbucker, and I was very particular about the sound so that I could hear everything from powerful sounds to refreshing and gorgeous tones. Normal Strats have three knobs, but this one has two so that it's easy to play at concerts. Also, the traditional Japanese design on the pickups was designed by me! Please take a look and check it out!

Fender MAMI STRATOCASTER (Red)
(August 21, 2017 - Present)

This guitar features a vintage cherry red body, gold hardware, and a white pearloid pickguard. These latest custom Fender instruments debuted on SCANDAL's Instagram on Aug. 18, 2017, and made their official live debut at SCANDAL's 11th anniversary concert on Aug. 21, 2017.

She uses a Fender 2" Monogrammed Strap in Candy Apple Red with it.

MAMI's comments about the guitar from the Dec. 2017 issue of Go!Go! GUITAR:

The grain of the wood was made visible by making it a vintage cherry red color. The neck and fretboard were made of maple to bring out the brightness. Features such as the bridge and tuning pegs were made gold to bring out a feeling of quality. I made sure to make its appearance pop without giving it a heavy feeling and not making it too low-key. The sound is also important, but I took being able to use it for a long time into consideration.

MAMI played this guitar live for the first time at SCANDAL's 15th anniversary concert on Aug. 21, 2021. This is the same guitar that HARUNA played in 2017 during their 47-prefecture tour; it is currently unknown whether or not this MAMI took over that guitar or got a new one.

Great job, Lexian, for doing this!!! MAMI'S GEAR 3566927540

Acoustic guitar for Mami:
Same as Haruna-chan, I could only find one pic,and a really small one at that. Dunno what guitar is that. Looks like a Martin.

MAMI'S GEAR Gnj0910251900020-p3

I think MAMI is playing a GUILD. The shape of the scratchplate gave the game away in this case (Martin guitars in most cases have the 'teardrop' shaped scratchplate that many acoustics emulate). Nevertheless, while the general shape of the scratchplate is typical of a GUILD acoustic, I have to admit hers has a somewhat larger scratchplate and a more curved cutaway at the bridge. It is possible that it may look something like this:


MAMI'S GEAR Guild

Also, I wondered if it is the same GUILD HARU used at the UNIQLO Acoustic Live in Ginza back in 2011.

MAMI'S GEAR 20120912_scandal_uniqlo1

As these acoustics are not part of SCANDAL's usual arsenal of guitars, it is highly likely they were made available for them to play at these acoustic gigs, which may explain why they keep using different acoustic guitars each time.

The bridge pickup on the Jazzmaster is actually a humbucker. It's the same size as a single coil pickup, and I didn't notice until I read it in the June 2013 issue of GiGS, where she talks about it. If you look closely, you can see that it doesn't have the poles like the other two single coil pickups. I think I may have read it on SH too; someone here might have noticed it before the GiGS interview.

The Squier "Stratomaster" (Jazzmaster offset shape with Stratocaster neck),

Pickup arrangement as well. It's supposed to have the same pickup arrangement as her Strat.

I don't really know why she bothered, honestly; she also puts foam under the strings behind the bridge to mute the harmonics (this is a "feature" a lot of JM players actually love) and she leaves the trem arm out, so she never uses that either. So there's really nothing about the Jazzmaster in that guitar other than the basic body shape. She doesn't seem to actually like Jazzmasters, even though she owns this one and that other one. She may just like the shape but not how they work or sound. She seems like a Strat girl through and through.

This question is even more complicated actually haha... I'm not really sure about the stratomaster but between a jazzmaster and a strat, there is most definitely a difference.

Strats are famous for having a very distinct, glassy, cutting, bell like tone while a jazzmaster is (through my own testing experience anyway, I don't own one... yet) sounds a little fatter/warmer due to the way its pickups are wired. Kind of like Gibson Les Pauls with P90 pickups, but Jazzmasters are "janglier" (cleaner? I'm not sure how exactly to put it.)

I realise this explanation might be hard to understand but in a nutshell, yes, the two guitars have different "voicings" so to speak.

I would love to own a Jazzmaster, I tested one some months ago and I was surprised at how much I liked it.

I am also really curious as to how Mami's guitar really sounds like without all the effects she likes to run. A Jazzmaster with 3 pickups (and one of them is a HotRail stacked humbucker!), that's something you don't see everyday...

A guitar's tone is not drastically altered by body shape. The Jazzmaster's unique voice is influenced by its pickup configuration and how you can fine tune your tone using their separate switches for the rhythm and lead tone circuits (I own a Fender Jaguar and I'm still confused hehe).

MAMI's Stratomaster, in essence, is just a guitar with a HSS pickup config, even if it has a Tele shape (Telemaster?). This is merely a calculated guess, but I agree with @spacecadet that she probably liked the offset shape but wanted to retain her HSS tone when asked for new custom guitar by Squier.

@Lexian: please update the information about the CIEM that Mami is using currently into the Pro Audio Series (because the only CIEM that came out from FitEar with yellow pelican box is only Pro Audio). I don't know what series of Pro Audio that Mami use but from the yellow pelican box, I know it is Pro Audio Series (maybe all the member of SCANDAL use the Pro Audio Series?)

I think it was noticed (discussed in the old instruments thread). At that point, because there were a few other unaccounted items (like that gold top Yamaha SG), I wondered if the additional gear was added just for the PV.

MAMI promoting H&K huh? Interesting.

Note: Pearl is the official H&K distributor in Japan. I wonder if RINA's endorsement of their drums has something to do with it?

Others have given you the basics already so I won't go into that, but as far as the "Stratomaster" specifically, there is no production guitar by that name, just her totally custom one, so it's really impossible to generalize because we have only a basic idea of what she's got in that thing.  Any electric guitar's sound is *mostly* shaped by its pickups, although a lot of other things can and do affect tone.  She has three Strat pickups in her Stratomaster, so I would expect that it would sound a lot more like a Stratocaster than a Jazzmaster, and indeed I cannot tell the difference when she's playing the Stratomaster vs. her Stratocaster.

But there are different types of Strat pickups made by Fender (plus she's got that Seymour Duncan stacked humbucker at the bridge), so she could still have any number of possible combinations and the true sound of the guitar is probably somewhat masked by her effects.  There may be minor differences in the tone between her Stratocaster and Stratomaster that she's masking.  But a Jazzmaster with real Jazzmaster pickups would sound very distinct from either of those other guitars.  (I actually have both a Strat and two Jazzmasters myself, and they do sound a lot different.)

maharizm wrote:A guitar's tone is not drastically altered by body shape. The Jazzmaster's unique voice is influenced by its pickup configuration and how you can fine tune your tone using their separate switches for the rhythm and lead tone circuits (I own a Fender Jaguar and I'm still confused hehe).

And Mami's Stratomaster doesn't have the Jazzmaster rhythm circuit, just a lead circuit and simplified Strat controls - seems like just a single volume and tone.  Truth be told, most Jazzmaster players don't use the rhythm circuit anyway because they don't understand what it does either, and some people hit the switch by mistake during hard playing so they tape over it or remove it.  I like it though because it does change the tone (makes it "darker" or mellower, and kills a lot of hum as a side effect).

Interestingly, in checking her controls I did come across a pic of the Stratomaster with a standard Strat bridge pickup, so I guess she switched that out for a humbucker herself after the guitar was built. That would most likely be so she could use it basically interchangeably with her other Strat. When she introduced it at Budokan, I don't think she used it for many songs at all if I remember right, but adding the Rails pickup would let her do pretty much anything she can with the actual Strat.
