GK-Ready Stratocaster®


Stratocaster Equipped to Drive the GR-55

The complete functions of the Roland GK-3 are perfectly and beautifully embedded in the authentic Fender Stratocaster, letting you drive the GR-55 and other 13-pin compatible gear. As well as its futuristic functionality, it also provides classic Fender Stratocaster sound and feel.

Stratocaster with Support for GR-55

The GC-1 has built-in divided pickup that adds infinite creative possibilities to the Fender Stratocaster. In addition to playing the GC-1 as a normal Stratocaster through your favorite amp, you can also connect it to the GR-55 Guitar Synthesizer, GR-D V-Guitar Distortion, GR-S V-Guitar Space, or VG-99 V-Guitar System to dramatically enhance creativity.

One-Cable Connection

With a single GK cable, you can conveniently connect the GC-1 to a GR-55, GR-D, GR-S, and VG-99. This is all you need to tap into a world of sound through COSM modeling or guitar synthesis. The GC-1 is also capable of converting your performance into MIDI data via a VG-99 or GR-55, so you can use it as a MIDI controller to record your guitar performances directly to a DAW.

Classic Strat, New Horizons

Since pioneering the GR-500 guitar synth in 1977, Roland has been dedicated to developing the ultimate electronic guitar. A perpetual and continuous quest for the next-generation guitar led to electric-guitar giant Fender®. Now, collaborating with Fender, Roland proudly introduces a new era of electronic guitar: V-Guitar!
