Any Bobby fans out there? This is a great guitar! If not for the endless possibility of the midi/synth function, then the fastness/ smoothness of the graphite neck, make it extremely fun to play. Casio is from 1988, and the neck is from 1989, and was funny enough, actually owned by Brad Whitford of Aerosmith (certificate of authenticity included). The original casio neck is also included in the sale, along with a hardshell case, and two additional sound-cards, that add over 120 instruments per card, in addition to the 64 built in sounds already in the guitar itself.
I have to start letting go of some of my collection, in order to make way for some new additions. I am taking any reasonable offers, (trades included) but ultimately would like to get some cash that I could set aside. Email me with any questions at all.

Does the synth interface w/ Roland GR-1 by chance?

no it doesnt, or atleast not directly, that I am aware of. But I believe you can use the guitar as a midi controller for other synths, im just not sure how.

What is the natural guitar tone sound like?

It sounds very bright, and almost jangley, if that makes any sense? The clean allows for a very Bob Weir like tone for rhythm, and with some overdrive, you get some really hot screaming leads. The neck gives the guitar a very unique sound. If you were to swap the pickups with some EMGs, or even better, an Alembic fat strat set, then this baby would really have it all.

sweeeeeeet! With a Fernandes sustainer on board this would be a phenomenal plaything.
