FENDER USA ROLAND Ready GC-1 STRATOCASTER GK-2 13-Pin MIDI Pickup Strat! 73625
You're looking at a 1996 Fender GC-1 Roland ready Stratocaster in creme finish. This is a very rare bird, first because I’ve never seen a GC-1 in this color, and second because the neck says it was made in USA. Not sure if they ever made the GC-1 in USA or if someone just put a USA neck on a GC-1 body. Either way, it’s the highest quality, most solid GC-1 I’ve ever come across.
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 using the GK Roland pickup that's onboard. Very clean with no dings, only some light scuffs on back. Frets are in great condition. It is ready to go. Comes with fitted Fender hard case and tremolo bar. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. (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.
