Roland rewrote guitar-tech history with the debut of COSM technology, which first appeared on the pioneering VG-8 guitar-modeling system. Today, the new G-5 infuses a coveted Fender Stratocaster with advanced features realized by Roland’s COSM technology. In addition to offering all classic Stratocaster sounds and functionality, the G-5 provides a new world of electric and acoustic guitar tones recreated by COSM — including instantly accessible alternate tunings and 12-string sounds for all COSM guitar tones! The G-5 also offers a built-in library of coveted modeled pickup tones, and, thanks to COSM technology, also enables unique “ideal-performance” pickups, such as a humbucker with ultra-wide tone and a single coil with full, bold tone.

Comments about Roland G-5 VG Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

I got an excellent deal on this guitar at the Sam Ash San Antonio store from a great guy named Roland. This guitar can replace multiple guitars at a gig or performance. My favorite tunings are the 12 string and Drop D. The Tele & Strat modes are good, humbuckers sound decent, but the acoustic models seem weak or tinty. It's great that you have a good playing Strat when not in the modeling modes. If batteries die, you can still play the Strat guitar in normal electric guitar uses. This guitar is very good for what it is designed to do, model guitars & guitar tunings. It's not made to drive a synth, so don't buy this model expecting it to do so.
