Thanks Andrew. It's my never-ending quest to find the one guitar that does it all.

What I don't like is the Roland GK pickup; it sticks into the pad of my thumb and affects my picking. Tracking is also not as good as on a Godin LGX-SA that I had. The bridge saddles were the midi drivers, and contact was more solid with the string.

Parker makes the Adrian Belew signature model now; it has magnetic, piezo, and synth (from the bridge saddles, as mentioned). But it also has a Variax circuit in it, which models acoustics, jazz boxes, sitars, etc etc. So anything the magnetic/piezo/synth can't do, he has a model of, say, a 12-string on board.

The Parker trem works really well, but it is not as stabel as a Floyd for wild wobbling. Graphtech now makes a Floyd-style bridge with piezo/synth saddles and circuitry, so you can get that versatility in a more rock guitar format as well.

All of this depends on your income/lotto luck; the Belew guitar is $10,000, and even the Graphtech bridge can be $500 plus installation costs.  Where IS that Lotto Max win I ordered???

That's a very versatile guitar!
