VIDEO: Hands-on with Roland GR-55

It's been a long time since Roland added to its GR line of guitar synths - about seven years in fact. Announced at NAMM 2011, the GR-55 is here to end that drought.

Featuring a wealth of onboard sounds, plus a whole host of amp modelling options, this truly is a synth with something for everyone. Prices start at £599 for the GR-55S, going up to £699 for the GR-55K, which includes a GK-3 guitar pickup.
