Comments about Roland GK-KIT-GT3 GR-Synth Driver Kit:

not to bad to install , but if you notice a very loud hum
even gets louder when you touch the strings , make sure you have the shield and white hooked up instead of the black and white on the volume pot for guitar pickups , it will make a difference even tho it fits in the slot it won't work properly.

Roland GK-KIT-GT3 GR-Synth Driver Kit

Comments about Roland GK-KIT-GT3 GR-Synth Driver Kit:

I liked the fun of doing the installation myself. Liked the ability to place the controls where I decided on the guitar. I liked that the components were small and easy to fit into the space available inside the guitar.
KIt came with an installation instruction that guided me through the installation just fine. No operators manual was provided. I downloaded from Roland the GK-3 (non-kit version) operators manual which should be applicable except for physical appearance. Regular GK-3 comes with a 1 mm gage to help set gap between each pickup and its corresponding string. The Kit did not provide this gage - a minor point. Pickups adjust to match a range of curvatures on the guitar bridge. A 14" radius was the largest. I had a couple of questions as I worked through the installation, and Roland Support provided answers on the phone.
So far, so good. Everything seems to work ok. I have played this through a Roland GR-33 synth board for a total of about 1 hour (just finished the installation). What fun!
For my project (installed into a Steinberger Synapse Transcale baritone guitar) this was the best value for my money. My Steinberger has a one-piece aluminum bridge, string height is not adjustable except as a group. For different guitars, with different bridge arrangements, you might find other brands of kits might work better for you. The readily available support from Roland was a bonus I had not expected - a big plus.

Do try this at home!

Comments about Roland GK-KIT-GT3 GR-Synth Driver Kit:

I bought this kit a little while back after trying unsuccessfully to mount an old external GK2 internally (don't ask). The kit was very easy to install, very little space needed internally and the set up was a breeze. I feel it is a little pricey but as kits go it is well put together and well documents. I've had it install for a year or so now. It works flawlessly. If you are tired of the external GK mounted on you guitar this is the way to go!
