Thanks for the review.
What guitar did you connect the pick up to?
Is it easy to remove the pickup if you wanted to (say mid gig)?

I connected it to my Jackson.
It is easy to remove, but i wouldnt advice on removing it mid-gig. It takes some time to unscrew the connector-box from the strap-holder.
But there's no need to remove it really, you just set the slider-switch to "guitar" and the midi-part is turned off.

Oh right, so the GK-3 pickup doesn't cover up you normal pick up at all? Whereabouts does it go?

Nope, it's a seperate additional pickup.
The pickup is a thin black bar that you put between the bridge pickup and the bridge. Preferably as close to the bridge as you can.

Cool! Thanks for the info, I was considering saving up for one, but I was worried that I'd have to swap out one of my pickups or get a new guitar all together - I know Fender make a guitar that is Roland ready.

Yeapp. Godin has some Roland ready models as well. I think they are a bit cheaper, could be mistaken on that though.
