    Boss Guitar - jut what (no one) asked for!



    It looks like "Body by Sears" and gives me nightmares of some internal circuitry crapping out and no one I know able to troubleshoot it...

    It kinda looks like one of those L6 Variax guitars, but worse somehow.

      That's exactly what I thought. I've known hundreds of guitar players over the years and only 1 who wanted a Variax and 1 other who considered one before going the Helix route. Seems like someone at Boss got a pet project greenlit that is going to have a bad impact on Roland's bottom line...

          Cant be bothered to read but can I plug this into a sequencer and use it as a midi controller AND have it accurately track? (I am guessing no.....)

            I saw this on Gear News and almost had a heart attack when I saw the price. For all I know this could be a super well-made guitar, but they managed to make it look cheaper than a Harley Benton.

              I've seen much nicer looking Aria Pros in the last month... While I might be in the minority in this (which I doubt) a guitar has to have a visual appeal to make me want to pick it up. This is the opposite of that.

                When they’ve done dedicated synth guitars with Fender and .strandberg*, this just feels like a big step in the wrong direction, right down to the ugly logo scrawled on the bare maple headstock. These will be forced on dealers, and will be on clearance for half price (or less) in six months.

                  Weird to see it marketed under the BOSS name rather than Roland.

                  Boss is a division of the Roland corporation and always has been. Traditionally they have used the Roland branding for their synth guitars.

                  Nonsensical from a branding standpoint, but nothing new, Roland has been making synth/midi enabled guitars since the 80s.

                    That's been changing for a few years now, starting with the GP-10, and carrying on to the SY series. This guitar (and the SY series) doesn't use a divided pickup at all, and instead relies upon the SY technology for polyphonic synth tones. It's effectively an SY-1 built into the cavity.

                    As for the guitar, it's boring, mundane, etc. but it's probably a decently made guitar, since it's made in Japan. I bet it's even made by Fujigen. That being said, I've got zero interest in it, at all. I can't imagine why someone would go this route, when you can just buy an SY-1/300/1000 and use it with literally any guitar you want, no pickup required.
