I just posted these clips to YouTube.

The GX-13 splits the signals from a vintage guitar, note data goes to the 13-pin synth (GR-55/VG-99) and control voltages go to a modified GM-70:

It's already sold on May 31, 2015.

Tonight I am waiting for my G-707 to arrive. I will see what I can do with it. At least I can use it as a regular guitar using it's Akai output jack.

Curious - Explain the  " Akai output jack" ?

It is common in my country to say akai connector for phone jack. (As example this Indonesian website: http://jualalatkaraoke.com/av-aksesoris/konektor/jack-akai-mono-audio-plug-gcd300n-original-by-soundcrest)

I think it is universal, or maybe only Asian use this term? Sorry if this make confusion.

BTW: The Roland G-707 has already arrived at my home, it is completely dead and very filthy, but fortunately the body is still in good shape I am working to make it back to a beautiful thing. Thanks for your website and Dr Joness, both of you and all forum participants have give me a lot of info.

Similar to here in USA, we refer to a PHONO jack as an "RCA jack"

Yes, if you come to my home town, it's safe to say "akai jack" or "RCA jack", it's become a 'local' language, nobody will understand 'phono' or 'phone' jack. If you say phone, people will assume RJ-11.

This is where the term "phone jack" originated from
the manual operator telephone exchange

The phone connector was invented for use in telephone switchboards in the 19th century and is still widely used. In its original configuration, the outside diameter of the "sleeve" conductor is 1⁄4 inch (6.35 millimetres). The "mini" connector has a diameter of 3.5 mm (0.14 in) and the "sub-mini" connector has a diameter of 2.5 mm (0.098 in).


and the "phono jack", short for phonograph or record player, or RCA jack.


The name "RCA" derives from the Radio Corporation of America, which introduced the design by the early 1940s for internal connection of the pickup to the chassis in home radio-phonograph consoles.


Locally in these parts of the southern hemisphere, the phone jack is simply "guitar plug", and the consumer phono  connector is "RCA plug"... Bro..  chur...chur..  ;)
