I used the PG-380 on tour in 1997-98 while performing with Information Society. I played synth bass with it. I used some of the internal sounds but mostely, I ran it thru a Roland Super Jupiter. The tracking was a bit flucky with some sounds, but it was the best guitar midi-controller I ever played. I had two of them for touring as they were a little tempermental (but mostely, I think our rocka-bocka-boo road crew were playing games with me. Snap this tool up if you can still find one, it is a very nice guitar.

I HAVE TO GIVE THIS A 5 OUT OF 5. I HAVE OWNED AND USED THE PG-380 SINCE 1987. THE TRACKING AND SYNTH OPERATION IS THE SAME AS WHEN IT WAS BRAND NEW. I'VE PLAYED OTHER MIDI GUITARS (EQUIPPED WITH ROLAND GK PICKUPS) AND MY OPINION IS THAT NOTHING COMES CLOSE TO THE PG-380 PERFORMANCE, NOT ONLY THE INTERNAL SYNTH BUT IN DRIVING EXTERNAL SYNTHS. I DO HAVE SEVERAL COMPLAINTS THOUGH, 1 - THE WEIGHT OF THE GUITAR (HAVING IT AROUND YOUR NECK FOR A 4 HOUR GIG CAN BE BRUTAL), AND 2 -THE FACT THAT I'VE NEVER BEEN ABLE TO FIND A ROM CARD TO FULLY UTILIZE THE BUILT-IN SYNTH. INCIDENTALLY, NOT BEING A TECHIE MYSELF, I WAS TOLD THE FOLLOWING BY THE STORE TECH THAT SOLD ME THE GUITAR: "EVEN IF YOU DON'T PLAY THIS THING REGULARLY, KEEP IT POWERED UP AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE". I THINK THAT IS WHY SO MANY OF THESE GUITARS DEVELOPED PROBLEMS, THEY WERE NOT BEING KEPT IN POWER.

I got mine in 88. It worked great for 6 years. i played for eddy arnold for 10 years with a 25 person orchestra. the guitarist before me, bruce uchitel played harmonica .... i didn't....the 380 worked great i was able to cover the harmonica parts as well as do vibes and bell parts live without switching axes. The tracking on the internal sounds was great but the midi out was delayed noticably on the A and low E . Now the choke or pot on the circuit board is not letting the internal sounds speak. i foolishly tried to adjust it and cracked the graphite screw. chuckcobis@aol.com
