It was successful experiment of MIDI GK-3 Pick-up installation on Solid body 3-string guitar. Seems piano and other patches on GR-55 do work with less ghost noise...

 I sat here in a stupor of wonder at the sound of that thing.Your wonderful playing added to the sound.

 Thank you.

Pretty cool and that would sure be useful in lots of ways. Nice playing as well.

Super nice.  I love the slow blues.

Thank You, A.D.EKER.

Just for information: Roland GR-55 can simultaneously run four channels: Three MIDI and one from Guitar PICKUP. 

It has both Analog and  MIDI outputs, what allows later during edditing in DAW on computer to use available MIDI instruments from the program. There are hundreds of MIDI patches - real instruments sounds, including drums and synthesised sounds. MIDI really unchain imagination of those who want to experiment in music.

Though some problems still there: these are sudden noises and adjustments of strings sensitivity. But after practicing you can avoid these problems.

Best Regards.

Dear Poorness Studios and BrianQ for comments. I feel like I have opened just a door to Aladdin Music Cave. So many musical projects appeared on my Radar. 

Installation was simple.

Diagonal location of pick-up regarding strings gave a better sound stability for strings, piano, brass instruments. I think reason is in the fact that each string is processed by two heads of hex-heads magnetic Roland pick-up. 

I discovered that distance of pick-up to low bridge plays no role. At least so seems to me.

Best regards!

Wow. I am so jealous! Why didn't I think of that?

Sounds good! the GK-3 has kool features than the previous models, I like how easy the mounting bracket goes on the body. Cheers :)
