Fender has announced 3 signature model SCANDAL guitars: the HARUNA TELECASTER ®, the MAMI STRATOCASTER ® and the TOMOMI PRECISION BASS. Pre-orders for the guitars opened on November 17th and will be shipped at the end of December.
Discussions surrounding the production of the guitars began at the end of last year with prototypes being completed in July this year. Since then the guitars have featured at the band’s live shows as well as the music video for “Koisuru Universe.”
The members wanted the guitars to have longevity not just for themselves, but for the people who get their hands on one too. The models express the Haruna, Mami and Tomomi of today. The look and sound of each guitar come together to create an impressive line-up never before seen. The headstocks also have the members’ signatures on the back.
The HARUNA TELECASTER® has gold binding and gorgeous golden parts. It’s equipped with a Dimazio Chopper T bridge which gives the guitar a powerful sound. The gold pick guitar shines elegantly off the white body to complete the ethereal design of this model.
The MAMI STRATOCASTER® is equipped with 3 single coil guitar pickups – a first for Mami. The pickups are are Custom Shop Texas Special to give the model strong strat tones. Mami chose the vivid red colour for the body herself which matches the headstock. It also has a pearl pick guard and golden parts, giving it a classic yet florid feel.
The TOMOMI PRECISION BASS® has a natural body and rose fretboard as well as a red tortoiseshell pick guard. It’s installed with an American Vintage ’63 Precision pickup. The look and tone of the guitar is a vintage model and first of its kind. It has a thin neck shape and an authentic precision bass sound while maintaining ease-of-play.
Don’t miss your chance to get your hands on your very own model guitars from SCANDAL – who have led the girls band scene in Japan since their debut.
