2000. The interesting feature of this guitar is that, as its name suggests, it has both a built-in midi pickup and a Roland GK-2A system. It’s very useful for studio work having a midi controller and a classic sounding guitar on the same instrument. It is also a nice guitar with a very nice touch. I replaced the tuners for Sperzels and the original pickups, which were not very good, for those of a Stratocaster 25 anniversary which give me the classic Strat sound.
