The G-202 Roland Guitar Synth controller is a high quality hard-tail Stratocaster style guitar, built by Fuji-Gen in Japan and can work as a regular electric guitar.  It’s equipped with a pair of Roland humbuckers and passive electronics  But it also contains Roland’s GK-3 six-segment or hexaphonic pickup allowing sensing and digital conversion for each string.   The G-202 electronics card is specific to this model, and differs in construction from the other Roland controllers, like the G-303, G-505, G-707 and G-808.
