    Just trying to gauge if there's still any interest in a Roland GR-1 with GK-2 Midi pickup, before I start digging through the closet looking for it.

    This used to be on one of my Strats, but was put in a closet about 10-12 years ago, and it's been buried under since.

    Give me an idea of what I should expect to get for it, to see if it's worth digging it out.

    You can get an estimate by looking it up on Reverb or eBay.

    I did look at eBay and and Reverb, but most of those that are "cheap" don't come with the GK pickup or the cable, just the synth box. And some that are really cheap (~$100) are also from abroad and charging nearly as much as the unit for shipping.

    I don't know... I paid well over a grand IIRC, way back in the day, and if it's only worth a couple of hundred bucks, I'll just hold on to it for nostalgic purposes.

    You could put it on eBay with a reserve price and just see where the bidding goes. The way I look at it, a disappointing price is better than an unused item - and the money goes right back into the GAS budget.

    I think I'll hold on to it for a while longer.

    These things are cyclical. Probably not a terrible idea to sit on it.
