Description
You're looking at a 1999 Fender GC-1 Roland ready Stratocaster in black finish, made in Mexico. 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. Features include:

-- Alder body, maple neck, rosewood fretboard.

-- Roland GK pickup w/ On/Off/Blend miniswitch.

-- 9.5" radius, C-shape neck with vintage frets.

-- Some American parts, such as synchronized bridge.


Cosmetically, this GC-1 has some scuffing on the back and sides and some discoloration and minor warping to the pickguard in one spot (see pics). No large dings. Frets show minor grooving but still plays well all over the neck. The guitar has been fully tested with my own Roland processor, so you know the Roland pickup works. Weight is 8 pounds, 3 ounces. These GC-1 Strats are made with some USA parts and on a level close to many USA instruments. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.) Thanks for looking! 

What You Get
-- Full setup, cleaning, and new strings.

-- FREE USA shipping.

-- 30-day return policy.

-- Ship within 1 business day--pro packing.




Guitar Setup
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!

Packing
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.

 

Manufacturer Info

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.
