This is like the "Nyancat" of guitar videos. Haha, sorry for the repetition. I'm just trying to give the most solid comparison that I can. Using the same guitar, same amp tone, same mix and eq, and same riffs, are the only way to do this accurately, IMO. All of these pickups would most likely sound great if I were to dial in the amp, according to how the pickup reacts to the guitar. But, for the sake of consistency, the amp settings are exactly the same on every clip so you can hear the tonal variations between them IN THIS GUITAR.

Keep in mind- These pickups are all going to sound different depending on the guitar and amp you're using. A pickup that sounds good (or not good) in this guitar, might sound completely different in yours. The guitar used in this video has an extremely prominent midrange tone (almost to a fault). The baritone used here was rather picky! The result: a couple of the models clearly aren't a good choice for this guitar. However, a few of them compliment the tone, nicely . Which ones are your favorites?

Roland G-5 VG Stratocaster® — Steve Stevens Demo

G-5 VG Stratocaster®: V-Guitar Overview

Los Angeles, May 24, 2012 —The GC-1 GK-Ready Stratocaster is now available. One of the V-Guitar series, this professional-level electric guitar combines an authentic Stratocaster guitar and a special Roland divided pickup with a 13-pin output, enabling it to be used with both standard guitar equipment and revolutionary Roland V-Guitar category products like the GR-55 and VG-99.
Universally recognized as leading pioneers in the music products industry, Roland and Fender have enjoyed a productive partnership for a number of years. Bringing their unique strengths together to enhance and expand the potential of the world’s most popular instrument, they’ve jointly developed a number of electronic guitar products, such as VG Stratocaster guitar, and Legend series compact pedals.
Roland V-Guitar category products like the GR-55 and VG-99 put the unlimited potential of digital technology into the hands of guitarists everywhere. To harness this power, Roland developed the GK Divided Pickup, a special pickup that allows each of a guitar’s strings to be processed independently. Connecting a GK-Ready guitar to the Guitar Synthesizer or V-Guitar System opens up a world of magical music expression to the guitarist, including instant alternate tunings, transforming the guitar sound into another instrument entirely, and much, much more.
To help identify and define these advanced products, we have created a new category “V-Guitar” that includes all the 13-pin compatible products, such as VG-/VB-99, GR-55 and divided pickups, as well as the VG Stratocaster and GK-Ready Stratocaster.
The GC-1 GK-Ready Stratocaster takes Fender’s iconic and cherished guitar and builds in a Roland GK Divided Pickup and a 13-pin output for connecting to the Guitar Synthesizer and V-Guitar System. The instrument’s intuitive control panel also includes a knob and switches that allow the player to con

trol various functions of 13-pin compatible devices directly from the guitar, as well as blend the guitar’s normal pickups with the GK-driven sound.
As a guitar, the GC-1 GK-Ready Stratocaster is a 100% authentic Fender Strat® guitar, with the same legendary sound and feel that players have loved for over 50 years. It features a solid contoured body, maple neck (with rosewood or maple fingerboard), three single-coil pickups with 5-way switching, a synchronized tremolo bridge, a 3-ply pickguard, American inline tuners, and chrome hardware.
The GK-Ready Stratocaster GC-1 is available in a classic hand painted three-tone sunburst finish with a rosewood fingerboard, or a black finish with a maple fingerboard.
