The G-5A VG Stratocaster brings you the power and versatility of Roland's V-Guitar technology in a top-level, limited-edition instrument made in the U.S.A. Built in the Fender factory in Corona, California, the G-5A is a 100-percent authentic American Standard Stratocaster guitar, complete with a gorgeous Candy Apple Red finish and 22-fret maple neck with rosewood fingerboard. Enhancing the classic Strat sound and functionality are onboard Roland COSM® electronics that provide a universe of modeled electric and acoustic guitar sounds. The amazing G-5A gives you the ability to completely change your tone at a moment's notice, with fingertip access to a library of coveted vintage instruments, plus a selection of COSM-powered "ideal performance" pickups that deliver a unique, modern edge. To top it off, alternate tunings and 12-string sounds are instantly available for any COSM guitar tone, all with a simple twist of a knob!
The World's Most Versatile Guitar Powered by Roland's amazing COSM technology, the VG Stratocaster guitar gives you an entire collection of world-class tones to pick and choose from, all in the same instrument. At your fingertips are 25 pickup and instrument tones, plus alternate tunings and 12-string sounds. Take a single guitar to the gig and change tones effortlessly, instead of having to switch out instruments every time you need a different sound or tuning.
Change Your Sound in an Instant Using the VG Stratocaster's five-way pickup selector and Mode knob, you can access a wide range of modeled tones, including vintage Strat, Telecaster®, fat humbuckers, and even an archtop jazz box. Also onboard are unique, modern pickup sounds realized with COSM, including "Wide Range" single-coil variations and two "Bright Humbucker" options. Steel- and nylon-string acoustic tones are available as well, plus a neat, retro electric sitar sound. Of course, you can always dial up the built-in single-coil pickups and use the VG Stratocaster as a conventional guitar, bypassing the COSM section entirely.
Alternate Tunings and 12-String Sounds Along with the great COSM instruments, the VG Stratocaster gives you the ability to change your tuning without touching the tuning keys! With any COSM tone, a quick twist of the Tuning knob lets you dial up Drop D, DADGAD, Baritone, or Open G tunings. Also available via the Tuning knob are 12-string tones, which can be applied to any COSM guitar sound.
