The G-5 VG Stratocaster, an amazingly versatile electronic
guitar that fuses traditional design with the latest in digital
music technology, is now available. Combining Roland's
revolutionary COSM® modeling with Fender's classic Stratocaster
guitar, the G-5 VG Strat gives players instant alternate tunings, a
wide selection of electric, acoustic and 12-string guitar models,
and more-all easily accessible with standard controls on the front
of the instrument.
In 2007, the two legendary companies joined forces to create the
VG Stratocaster guitar, the first instrument to blend Roland's
innovative digital technologies with Fender's iconic solid-body
guitar. The G-5 represents the next generation in this important
partnership, which aims to enhance and expand the potential of the
guitar through the seamless integration of familiar, world-class
instrument design and latest digital processing.
Inside the G-5 is Roland's groundbreaking COSM guitar modeling,
the same tone technology found in the VG-99 V-Guitar System and
GR-55 Guitar Synthesizer. Driven by an inconspicuously mounted GK-3
Divided Pickup, the onboard COSM engine gives the player a world of
different guitar sounds including unique "ideal-performance"
pickups, such as a humbucker with ultra-wide range and a single
coil with full, bold tone at their fingertips, available simply by
adjusting the familiar Stratocaster knobs and 5-way pickup selector
switch. (sentence is long, can we break up?)
The 20 sounds onboard the G-5 VG Strat include Fender
Stratocaster, Telecaster®, humbucking, 12-string, acoustic models,
and cutting-edge unique sounds, plus five alternate tunings. A Mode
Control knob selects one of five distinct modeling modes, while the
Tuning Control knob allows players to apply alternate tunings such
as open G, drop D, baritone, and others to any currently selected
model. In addition, a digital reverb effect is available when an
acoustic model is selected.
As an instrument, the G-5 VG Stratocaster is an authentic Fender
Stratocaster guitar through and through. It features a solid
contoured body, 22-fret maple neck (with rosewood or maple
fingerboard), three American Strat® single-coil pickups with 5-way
switching, a synchronized tremolo bridge, a 3-ply pickguard,
American inline tuners and chrome hardware. The G-5 is 100% a real
Strat® guitar, with the same legendary sound and feel that players
have loved for over 50 years.
The G-5 VG Stratocaster gives players a single, versatile guitar
that can cover any musical style and playing situation.
The G-5 VG Stratocaster is available in a classic three-tone
sunburst finish with a rosewood fingerboard, or a black finish with
a maple fingerboard.
