Product Description

Roland's commitment to guitar synthesis took a wild and unexpected turn in 1984 with the introduction of the GR-700 guitar synthesizer, and the G-707 guitar. In its previous incarnation, Roland had conservatively leaned on the knowledge and experience of Fujigen to produce guitars with familiar shapes and sounds: the Les Paul like G-303/808 and the familiar Fender designs of the G-202/505.

The G-707 was simply a guitar of the kind no one had ever seen, a strikingly original instrument in the generally derivative guitar market. Its 25 1/2" scale neck, and dual humbucker pickups, put it in the "super strat" category, but the wild body shape and stabilizer arm went places no major manufacturer had ventured before. I have yet to meet a person who has actually played the G-707 who did not remark on the ease and playability of the G-707 guitar. The ABS stabilizer bar really works to tame the inconsistencies of a guitar neck, if you can get past the visual effects. And much of the G-707 was never seen again: the Roland roller tremolo bridge, the newer, smaller electronics package that did not include the hex fuzz option of the G-202/303/505/808, and of course the ABS stabilizer bar.



The G-707 is really a performance instrument. The striking appearance will elicit remarks from a crowd whether its 1984 or 2012, but understandably it's nearly impossible to play sitting down without a guitar strap, something it has in common with the similarly forward-thinking Ibanez IMG2010.

This guitar is second hand and may show some signs of cosmetic wear however is in 100% fully functioning condition. This Guitar has one broken pot shaft and a knob missing but the pot still functions as it should.

This Guitar is available in store at Guitar Village Frankston 50 minutes south of Melbourne. You can drop into our shop and try it out or you can purchase it online and we will ship it out to you.
