2022 Mami Signature Stratocaster HH Omochi Vintage White, Mint w/ Hangtags, Japan MIJ

$1,799.99

+ shipping

Up for sale, a 2022 Mami signature Stratocaster “Omochi” in like-new condition, complete with the original gigbag and hangtags. This “Made in Japan” Strat is the latest signature model of Mami, lead guitarist of iconic Japanese rock band Scandal, designed to celebrate the group’s 15th anniversary. According to Fender, Mami named the instrument after mochi, with the aesthetics evoking the classic Japanese dessert, and because the clean tones are soft and supple while delivering a powerful core tone. It sports a bevy of unique features, including Mami Custom humbuckers, Gotoh 510T-FE1 two-point synchronized tremolo, satin-finished compound Modern C-to-D neck profile, and gloss Vintage White finish with matching headstock and white body binding.

Tonewoods include a contoured, “drop top”-style alder body, maple neck, and thick slab 22-fret rosewood fretboard. The Mami Custom humbuckers are a proprietary design, and these pickups are built for maximum versatility, ranging from “deep distortion to glittering clean tones.” They’re warm and breezy, particularly at the neck, with plenty of power on tap, a notably full midrange and very sweet, singing trebles that translate to a vocal-like quality at the bridge, similar to a cocked wah. As promised, they also take gain notably well, delivering tons of harmonic richness without any muddiness. This “Omochi” Strat weighs 7lbs 14oz, professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 9-42 strings, slinky action, and spot-on intonation.
