FENDER ROLAND Ready GC-1 STRATOCASTER Super Clean 13-Pin MIDI PU Strat 68009
You're looking at a 2008 Fender GC-1 Roland ready Stratocaster in sunburst finish. Plays with all the advantages of a standard Strat with the added bonus of a 13-pin jack that enables you to connect via MIDI to various Roland synth units. This guitar looks very clean. I won't say mint, but definite 9/10 condition. The frets are in very good condition. The only imperfections I see are a couple hairline cracks at the neck joint, which if you're familiar with Strats, you know these are quite common. I tried to capture them in photos, but they are such fine cracks, you really can't see them. (there are some reflections in the pics. the cracks run at 45-degree angles from the joint are are nearly invisible. they are not the more visible light reflections)
The guitar still has the plastic on the pickguard and the tremolo cover. It also has the original control overlay from the factory. It comes with tremolo bar and the original Fender gigbag that says "Fender Powered by Roland." Also has the original Fender paperwork. The guitar will come set up and ready to play. Weight is 8 pounds, 2 ounces. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.) I may end auction early if it sells elsewhere.Thanks for looking!

Equipped with a GK-2 Roland pickup, this unique model Strat is an awesome player that manages to do even more than the already versatile Stratocaster typically does. The electronics system allows the player complete control of their sound, fitted with dual outputs (1/4” and 13-pin) and the ability to play through them independently or simultaneously. The 5-way switch grants the player access to all the Stratocaster tones they know and love, while the Roland GK-2 enabled pickup affords endless midi possibilities.
All setups are done by our in-house luthier. Setup includes new strings (9s or 10s depending on what the nut is cut for), overall polish, cleaning any gunk off fingerboard, oiling neck, and polishing frets when necessary. We spray out any pots that are noisy, turn the truss rod (if necessary) and set string height at low-to-medium action depending on string buzz present. Since setup is highly subjective you may need to get it set to your particular needs by your personal luthier. Basses get the same treatment minus the string change. Thanks!
I use quality boxes, thick bubble wrap, and peanuts to pack guitars. I have a very high rate of successful guitar and bass shipping (meaning few damaged instruments). I have been doing this 10 years and know how to pack well--with or without a hard case. I wrote a detailed story with photos on how I pack a guitar, which you can find on my StillKickinMusic site blog. If you Google "THERE IN ONE PIECE...How to Pack a Guitar" you will find it. Thanks.
