Since debuting it's COSM technology in the pioneering VG-8 guitar modelling system, Roland have now introduced the G-5 V-Guitar equipping the coveted Fender Stratocaster with the advanced features realised by COSM technology. Not only offering classic Stratocaster sounds and functionality the G-5 also offers COSM electric and acoustic guitar tone as well as instantly accessible alternate tuning and 12-string sounds. From single coil, full and bold tone to ultra wide humbucking tone, the G-5 offers a built in library of modelled pick-up tones all thanks to Rolands pioneering COSM technology and available in Black and 3-tone Sunburst colours.
