MIDI guitar synth project part – the guitar

This is a new series exploring guitars and MIDI implementation guitar synths

Ive been thinking about having a MIDI guitar for ages. I new someone who’d put the Roland GK external hex pickup back in the 90s when the thing to use was the roland/ Boss V pedal, which offered tuning options if you had a GK pickup.
