A Stratocaster® Equipped to Drive the V-Guitar category products by Roland.
The Roland GC-1 GK-Ready Stratocaster guitar is one of the V-Guitar series, an authentic Fender® Stratocaster guitar equipped with a special Roland divided pickup with a 13-pin output. The GK-Ready Stratocaster GC-1 can be used with both standard guitar equipment and revolutionary Roland V-Guitar category products like the GR-55 and VG-99.
Roland V-Guitar category products like the GR-55 and VG-99 put the unlimited potential of digital technology into the hands of guitarists everywhere. To harness this power, Roland developed the GK Divided Pickup, a special pickup that allows each of a guitar’s strings to be processed independently. Connecting the GC-1 guitar to a V-Guitar System opens up a world of magical music expression to the guitarist, including instant alternate tunings, transforming the guitar sound into another instrument entirely, and much, much more.
As a guitar, the GK-Ready Stratocaster GC-1 is a 100% authentic Fender Strat® guitar, with the same legendary sound and feel that players have loved for over 50 years. It features a solid contoured alder body, maple neck (with rosewood or maple fingerboard), three single-coil pickups with 5-way switching, a Fender synchronized tremolo bridge, a 3-ply pickguard, American in-line tuners, and chrome hardware.
