Roland G-5 VG Stratocaster at a Glance:
It's a Strat
The Roland G-5 VG Stratocaster has been developed in coordination with Fender, so you get all the classic Stratocaster sounds, playability, and functionality you'd expect. With its comfort-contoured alder body, maple neck/fingerboard and medium jumbo frets, three single-coil pickups, and vintage-style Synchronized Trem, the G-5 VG is pure Stratocaster. The only inkling that there's high-technology lurking under the bonnet is the (barely-noticeable) Roland divided pickup sitting at the bridge and a pair of small control knobs.
Sharpen your performance
The Roland G-5 VG Stratocaster modeling guitar puts performance perfection within reach. Now you don't have to stop the show to go into an alternate tuning. Any tuning you want is just a pinky-twist away. Want a 12-string for the chorus? You got it. How about that big-strum acoustic in the bridge? Done!
Unleash studio magic
Of course the Roland G-5 VG Stratocaster's sonic versatility will be just as valuable to you in the studio. Think of the look on the faces of your bandmates when you unexpectedly unleash full-on full-on gainiac mayhem in the solo section of the song for which you're laying down rhythm tracks. And they expected you to record the solo as an overdub!

First impression - a true instrument, this is no toy.
by Randall Birckhead from CincinnatiI bought the G-5 Roland Strat primarily for the 12 string capability, the open tunings and the Tele model. This guitar is, so far, incredible. The Variax cannot compete with the feel, fit and finish n... read more [+]ot to mention the superior "sounds" that flow out of this thing. I really worked out both and the G-5 clearly is more intuitive in its functionality and most importantly the sonic quality of the majority of the samples/patches. So far (I have had it about a month) the weakest model is the baritone. With some more work, perhaps I'll figure it out. The humbucker choice is really good, no Les Paul, but very close. Never been a humbucker kid of guy, so that really isn't an issue for me.

My take after a month. For those in need a 12 string model that actually works in a live mix, can take advantage of or need open tunings (specifically the open G) this is an answer. We play fair amount of the Byrds and the Ric 360/12 guys that come to hear us were blown away by the 12 string. The Tele model is superior to anything except a real Tele. The sitar model in DADGAD is too much fun.
This is no toy. This is a working musicians toolbox full of stuff you can actually use with your bands as opposed to sitting around and making "cool sounds". My expectations are more than met.
I love this thing. More to come as I get to know it better. close [-]
