Easy To Install And Fully Adjusts to ALL Electrics!

The new GK-3 Guitar Pickup from Roland offers access to Roland Guitar Synthesizers for all electric guitarists! The GK-3 pickup has been completely redesigned for optimum response. It's 30% thinner than its predecessor and now uses a standard 1/4" jack for normal guitar input.

Fully adjustable for the best response
The GK-3 pickup now includes an adjustable curve design that keeps an even distance between the strings, guaranteeing the best possible response. Even the pickup cable length is adjustable!

Les Paul players can now join the party
With the GK-3, Roland hasn't left out any electric guitars! If you play a Les Paul-type guitar you can safely install the GK-3 without any drilling by using an included special attachment plate.

There's a GK-3 for bass players, too
Roland's GK-3B pickup is specifically designed for bass guitars. It connects you to the same great Roland synths and processors.

Requires GKC-5 or GKC-10 13-pin cable - not included

Roland GK-3

I have several of these installed (by a professional) on various guitars. Comes with all the parts needed to install. Use them every week. They work great. Of course, you have to mount them on top of the guitar, but they are out of the way and there is no damage to the guitars from the install. Very easy access to the push buttons,and the volume control. I did have one of the input jacks fail, but Sweetwater is taking care of getting that fixed. I have only praise for the pickups.

Roland Synth Pickup GK-3

I had the pickup installed by a professional. It can be installed by a non-technical person, but I chose to not make an attempt at that. It works great with the GR-55. It tracks very well and I use the guitar and synth every week. I have a total of (3) guitars with the GK-3 pickups installed and all perform fine.

GK-3 Hex pickup 13 pin

Had GK2s w my older GR30 and finally got the new GR55 (get one!) the mounting on the GK3 is much better. A new bridge bracket for LP install no hassle no screws.The main controller attaches w a new mounting bracket that is padded and screws onto the strap holder. You simply must take the effort to install this puppy correctly and meticulous. position, height and saddle distance is all exact. Contrary to a lot of web stuff the GK3 is lower output than the GK2 probably to reduce string bleed and false triggering. GR55 w GK3 is a marvelous expansive tool for the advanced musician looking for the new galaxy of tones.

Learning Curve

I was sceptical about this Idea I had. I work at a local music store in Chico Ca. I purchased the Pedal portion of the Synth system an old used GR30 and the GK3 is what I am reviewing. After finally figuring things out the GK3 operates perfectly and the whole system by Roland is indeed what I remembered for years back. Now if I can just record with it Wunderba...Thanks again it is always a pleasure doing business with you guys. Sincerely, Qflat

Sweetwater Advice

Nick Schenkel

Dead simple to install (even temporarily). Excellent tracking. Roland quality and support. If you are looking at this pickup, you know what it does and why you want it. Just go ahead and order. You will not be disappointed.
