What's the difference between a GK2 and GK3 pickup?
« on: August 06, 2008, 01:22:34 PM »

I've been searching for a roland ready guitar for my VG88, and I see some guitars have the GK2 pickup, where on my current guitar I have the GK3 taped on.  What is the difference between the pickups?

The GK-3 has an adjustable radius. That's about it.

I don't know what the specific radius is on the GK-2, but I happen to own 4 of them and I use them with great success on a Strat, A Baritone set up a lot like a Jazzmaster, a LesPaul Recording (1970's), and a Honer Steinberger copy.  Using the sensitivity settings I can get the GK-2 to work pretty much everywhere.
