Vintage Roland Guitar Synthesizer Updates - November 2013

What is this?


You are receiving this email because you may have contacted me, Wayne Joness, with a question about vintage Roland guitar synthesizers, like the GR-300 or GR-500. Or you may have purchased one of my custom built guitar synth accessories.

In an effort to better keep guitar synth players informed, I am bringing back the Vintage Roland Guitar Synthesizer email list. Typically, I send out an email once a month. I highlight the newest information on the Vintage Roland Guitar Synthesizer Resource website, and may also shamelessly promote whatever new guitar gadget I have been building to expand the musical possibilities for guitar synth players.

If you are not interested in guitar synthesizers, or vintage Roland guitar gear, then I apologize! This means I failed when preparing my email list. Please feel free to unsubscribe.Otherwise, please keep reading, and see what is new! Thanks! Wayne

Roland M-64C Dedicated Webpage! First time Online!

OK...maybe not as sexy as a rare vintage guitar, but as of November 1 the website adds a new page dedicated to the Roland M-64C. The page includes interior photos, with a focus on replacing the memory back battery. You can also find a scan of the original instructions, and schematics. There is also a section on how to replace the memory chip in the M-16C and transform it into the much more valuable M-64C.
