Boss GK-5 Divided Guitar Synth Pickup

Designed for use with the GM-800 and other Boss guitar synthesizers, the GK-5 is a mountable digital pickup that picks up signal from each individual string.

The GK-5 is a user-installable guitar pickup designed for the advanced Serial GK digital interface found in the latest BOSS guitar synthesizer products. Offering improved performance over the previous analog 13-pin interface, Serial GK opens a universe of new sonic possibilities in guitar and bass synthesis.

Serial GK is a digital instrument interface developed for BOSS guitar synthesizers. It features a secure, space-saving connection that offers a lower profile than previous GK products. BOSS BGK series cables are specially designed for optimum performance with the Serial GK system, and they're more durable and easier to handle than 13-pin analog cables.

The GK-5 Divided Pickup is a specialized guitar pickup designed for the GM-800 and other BOSS guitar synthesizer products. Unlike standard guitar pickups--which send all string signals to a combined output--the GK-5 senses each string individually, sending their signals to separate outputs within the Serial GK system. This isolated string information allows your compatible BOSS product to perform all sorts of advanced processing feats not possible with standard pickups.
