FENDER 1999 ROLAND Ready GC-1 STRATOCASTER 13-Pin MIDI Pickup Nice Strat 47078
You're looking at a 1999 Fender GK-2 Roland ready Stratocaster in black 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 is in great condition for a 20-year vintage Strat. Has lots of little playing marks (see pics) mostly on the edges that are very hard to see, probably a 7/10 or 8/10 overall. It had been sitting for a while so I gave it a full detailed once over, including: crown/polish frets, oil fretboard, polish all hardware, and full setup and intonation. It is ready to play and enjoy. Weight is 7 pounds, 14 ounces. No case or tremolo bar. (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.

My setup on guitars 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. I spray out any pots that are noisy. I 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. I don't claim to be a trained luthier, but I'm able to set guitars/basses for a reasonable out-of-box experience and have had very few complaints. If you're looking for the perfect setup on a used guitar, please expect to take it to a trained luthier who is familiar with your individual playing style and preferences. ps: basses get the same setup minus the new strings. 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.
