Roland rewrote guitar history with the debut of their amazing COSM technology which first appeared on the pioneering VG-8 guitar-modeling system.

Roland’s COSM Technology lives on in a myriad of Roland sound devices – this one, now sadly discontinued is the celebrated and much loved G5 VG Stratocaster.

When first released, the G5 morphed the coveted Fender Stratocaster with advanced features only able to be realised by Roland’s COSM technology.

As well as the classic Stratocaster sounds and functionality, the G5 opened the door to a new world of electric and acoustic guitar tones recreated by COSM including instantly accessible alternate tunings and 12-string sounds for all COSM guitar tones! The Roland G5 also provided a built-in library of coveted modeled pickup tones and thanks to COSM technology, also enabled unique “ideal-performance” pickups, such as a humbucker with ultra-wide tone and a single coil with a full, bold tone. This was new territory in every sense.

Classic Stratocaster…New Horizons

Since the pioneering GR500 guitar synth in 1977, Roland has been committed to developing the ultimate electronic guitar. A perpetual and continuous quest for the next-generation guitar led to the now famous collaboration between Roland and Fender and the birth of the VG guitar. This, the last incarnation of the now legendary G5 melds the quiet confidence and trust of Fender’s Stratocaster with the exciting potential of Roland’s COSM technology.
