Product Description

Why should the synth guys have all the fun? If you're looking for a way to get the coolest sounds from your axe, whether you're tapping into the power of one of Roland's mighty Hex guitar processors or looking for a way to use your guitar as a MIDI controller, you're going to need a hex pickup. Do yourself a favor, get a Roland GK-3. You see, Roland's been in this game longer than anyone else, and they sure know how tho build a killer hex pickup. And check this out, the GK-3 mounts on your guitar without laving a mark. An adhesive strip lets you stick the GK-3 right on your bridge, and a pressure-plate-based housing holds the rest of the hardware on. No scratches and no drilling... not that you can't mount the GK-3 on with screws (go right ahead, no one's stopping you) but you don't have to by any means.

A perfect option for mounting on a Les Paul Standard guitar. It was easy to mount and worked perfectly the first try. I recommend, though, that one read some descriptions on how to do it, and watch a few YouTube videos, as there are some valuable tips and tricks and good advice out there.

It is nice in some ways and total failure in other ways.. I expected more from Roland..

#1 This item will NOT fit an acoustic guitar without drilling holes or using nothing but double sided tape to hold it on, the pressure clip is too short for even a thin body Concert acoustic guitar. The FIX: Roland should have provided 2 clips, a short and a long for acoustic. $0.50 part.

#2 This item will NOT work with Elixer strings, even though they are brass and steel with a very light poly coating. (I use thin coat Elixers to prevent string noise.) The FIX: Notify the public and potential buyers for quality assurance.

#3 The shims and tape included is a bit cheap, no extra tape. The FIX: Include extra double-sided tape and a few carbon fiber shims, the little "pickup cushions" are retarded and cause the pickup to not seat properly.

#4 The pickup needs to be installed almost exactly, 1mm/20mm ect.. This is NOT a 30 minute job, it could take hours to get everything properly situated. Possible FIX: allow more power to be sent to the pick-up, allowing greater versatility.

The fixes would require an extra $1-$2 spent on part of the manufacturing process but will allow greater customer satisfaction.

Was very easy to install on my PRS without having to drill anything or alter the guitar in any way. A couple of quick searches on YouTube showed me everything I needed to know to install it (took about 15 minutes). It tracks very well with both my GP-10 and DR-33.

Ok, I got this for my husband for his birthday. It's the third one he has - one for each guitar. I can't tell you how it works, if it works well or anything else you may want to hear. I know it's got to be good or the hubster would have sent the first one back. He's very hard to please but he seems to really like these things. I have to say I really like it, too, because it keeps him happy and then I can finally get something done!

Needs a better design! (This is my 4th one) as the wire can bee accidentally pulled out, and re-soldering was too challenging, all attempts failed. Roland says that you can buy a new pickup (6 weeks from Japan) and solder IT onto the controller easier.... OK, how about building a better one! They also say you can run the wire down and mount the pickup upside down (then change the configuration on the gk55 to know it's inverted), but that depends on the guitar/bridge/distances/etc... on the guitar. Why can't every guitar look the same so Rolands divided pickup will fit, haha.
Also fyi... the screw will slowly work it's way out and it's tiny, would never find it without flashlight and luck....so you may want to super glue it as soon as it's installed! If you call Roland, they

I got the GK-3 pickup bundled with the Boss GP-10. This pickup is a huge improvement from the GK-2 and GK-2A. Some reviewers say this pickup doesn't track well. When set up properly, (and depending on the unit you're trying to control) it tracks absolutely flawlessly with Zero Latency especially with the GP-10! This pickup is also built well, I didn't see anything cheaply made on it other than it's plastic casing but looks as though it will hold up very well. As for difficulty setting it up, I installed it on my '79 Les Paul Custom with the bridge adapter, and set up in under 30 minutes. I'm sure there may be more tweaking needed on other guitars, but you get everything you need to make adjustments.

I am an avid fan of the Roland GR-55 & this is the 3rd PUP I've purchased. I have 1 on a 1987 Charvel Model 7(Tele style) ,1 on an Ibanez BTB675 bass(GK-3B) & this 1 is going on a Strat. The GR-55 is a fantastic addition to recording or live playing. --JB

Got it for a second guitar for gigging. Works great. Exactly what I expected. Received it in a short time as well
