Roland GR-500, Roland GS-500 and the Expander 102.

The GS-500:
The guitar pu was changed to a Gibson when the guitar was new.

These are a nice and in good condition. Too sad I don't use them any more.
They should be in a studio, where you have the time to dial in the sounds.
Could be for sale if someone want vintage guitarsynth sounds in their studio.
PM if it's something you could use.

wow-what a beautiful top on that guitar-i remember that era-before the strat-looking one,and the one with the plastic arm.terje rypdal is a very good player-hard to find his stuff over here though.btw, janarn-my wife is half-norwegian,but she hasn't been over there quite in a while(like 20-some years)i would love to see that country.
