I think I got the last GC-1 in sunburst, the vendor's Roland rep said they were not expected to get any more in. I settled for a B stock that was in amazing shape. Gigged with it last night and I have now replaced the need for 5 separate guitars with this one!

Makes me think that there is a new model on the horizon?

Tough to know.

In this era the future fate of "New production Roland GK 13 pin guitars just might have already been decided months ago.

Only Roland Management knows the answer.

Glad to hear you are enjoying your GC-1 !

Looks like these are no more!
I had ordered a GC-1 from two different vendors only to have both orders cancelled.
The last one shipped the guitar and the courier lost it.  ::)
Even the group buy vendor is dry.
boo hoo!
I hope there is a replacement coming as I want to get rid of the bulky bolt on pick up.

Heh—that was my request too. :)

I think the best we'll ever be able to do is buy custom guitars with the hardware we want, install hardware into guitars we already own, or buy cheap "beater" guitars as platforms for crazy electronics.

It's not easy being green... (or lefty),

Though these are discontinued. You still can find them on ebay. That's the way I found mine, it's the older RR strat version though.
Nice find topido, judgin' by the photos looks like a standard mex-strat, with the GK-3 kit installed in it. It'll still work for its purpose

..yep, that's what it is alright..
..quickest give-away being the push buttons for S1 & S2
..second quickest give-away is the fact that someone obviously thought it wouldn't work without the 'power on' LED.. ::)

Some number of GC-1 instruments were built using the older "Roland Ready" electronics boards.

I find the only sure way to tell if the guitar is a GC-1 is count the frets

22 frets are Only found on the GC-1

Actually that is not a factory GC-1  - instead it is simply a MIM Strat with a Internal GK-KIT-GT3 Installed

YES...  !!
...and we're still trying to work out how many..   >:(

It would appear that there's no real pattern emerging yet, and the only way is to check the mainboard for the tell-tale indications..although I have come up with a way of checking via the 13-pin (Roland) jack wiring, without having to dis-member the guitar any further than that...   ;)
