Open your playing up to the world of synthesis

The Roland GC-1 GK-Ready Stratocaster is your vehicle to explore a world that's been inhabited primarily by keyboardists. Roland has aggressively pioneered guitar synthesis since their groundbreaking GR-500 guitar synth in 1977. Equipped to drive their GR-55 and VG-99 synths, the GC-1 gives players legendary Stratocaster tone and playability - with the added benefit of onboard control for synthesis.

It's a Strat

The Roland GC-1 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 GC-1 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 small white button.

Upstage your keyboard player with outrageous synth sounds

The Roland GC-1 is your ticket to reclaiming the spotlight. As a guitarist, you've owned onstage physical theatrics. But keyboardists have long been the gatekeepers of unique, breathtaking sounds - until now. With your GC-1 driving a Roland GR-55 or VG-99 synth, you can conjure up strings, a horn section - or a swirling, synthetic aural landscape every bit as ethereal as anything the keyboardist in your band (you are in a band, right?) can concoct. It's all possible, with the Roland GC-1 GK-Ready Stratocaster!

Roland GK-Ready Stratocaster Features:
  • Equipped with GK hex-divided pickup
  • 13-pin connector and all controls to drive the GR-55 and VG-99
  • Controls are compatible with the GK-3
  • Simple and easy operation based on the Stratocaster design concept
  • 22-fret neck with medium jumbo frets
  • American inline tuning keys
Futurize your guitar playing with the Roland GC-1 GK-Ready Stratocaster!
