So you went out and purchased a cool Roland GK synth pickup for your guitar only to find that there is no ideal way to attach it to the guitar. Double sided tape doesn't hold it in place, drilling the face of the guitar is unacceptable and worse yet when you go to put the guitar back into its case the GK pickup doesn't fit in with the guitar. This product addresses the issue of having a solid reliable mount for the GK pickup that can instantly be removed or re installed without drilling holes in the guitar. The base portion of this assembly attaches to a mounting ring for humbucker pickups without the need for drilling holes in the guitar or using adhesive mounting tape. The GK pickup is mounted to the saddle portion of the assembly, which features a snap in feature. This allows for the GK pickup to be quickly removed and re-installed while maintaining precise adjustments and alignment. The complete assembly will require NOT INCLUDED (2) M4x10 mounting screws, (2) M4 nuts, (2) small springs. In some cases the base plate may require longer screws than the stock screws holding the pickup ring in place. This item includes both the quick release saddle and the humbucker base mount.
Please note, this model has been tested with the Roland GK2 model on Les Paul style guitars with tall pickup mounting rings. It may not work with other Roland GK units or guitars with shorter pickup mounting rings. If you have a guitar or GK unit and are not certain that this will work please feel free to contact me. If needed, I may be able to develop a new model to fit your guitar or synth pickup.
I have had a number of inquiries about compatibility with various guitars. This model was designed for guitars with a raised tune-o-matic or tailsstop bridge and standard humbucker pickups with raised mounting rings. This design will not work with guitars where there are no elevated pickup rings. Also it may not work on guitars that have low profile bridges where the strings run close to the body.
