Fender ROLAND Ready GC-1 Stratocaster w/ Blade Runner Trem! MIDI PU Strat 26160
You're looking at a 2011 Fender GC-1 Roland ready Stratocaster in black finish with all maple neck, made in Mexico. Very significant upgrade with the $200 Blade Runner tremolo (read about it at super-vee.com). They are a far step above the stock Fender tremolo. Overall excellent cosmetic condition with one small ding on this 11-year-vintage guitar. Frets are in excellent condition.
These play 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. These were constructed with nearly all USA Fender parts and were assembled in Mexico, but you'll find the quality far above most Mexican Fenders. It has been fully tested for functionality with a Roland processor. Comes with black gigbag. Weight is 7 pounds, 9 ounces. The guitar will come set up and ready to play. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.) 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.
