BOSS GK-5B DIVIDED PICK UP
Divided bass pickup for BOSS guitar synthesizer products with the Serial GK interface.

Next-Generation Divided Bass Pickup for BOSS Guitar Synthesizers
The GK-5B is a user-installable bass pickup designed for the advanced Serial GK digital interface found in the latest BOSS guitar synthesizer products. Offering improved performance over the previous analog 13-pin interface, Serial GK opens a universe of new sonic possibilities in guitar and bass synthesis.

FEATURES

  • Next-generation divided pickup for electric basses
  • Supports the Serial GK interface used in the latest BOSS guitar synthesizer products
  • Stable digital transmission
  • Light and streamlined connector housing with a lower profile than previous GK pickups
  • Flat, slimline pickup fits on most electric basses with four, five, or six strings
  • Adjustable sensor spacing to match most bass bridges
  • Connector housing mounts securely to the instrument’s strap button with the included bracket
  • Specially designed BOSS Serial GK cables (BGK series) available for stable and accurate operation with your Serial GK product

Expand Your Creative Range with a BOSS Divided Pickup
The GK-5B Divided Pickup is a specialised bass pickup designed for the GM-800 and other BOSS guitar synthesizer products. Unlike standard guitar pickups—which send all string signals to a combined output—the GK-5B senses each string individually, sending their signals to separate outputs within the Serial GK system. This isolated string information allows your compatible BOSS product to perform all sorts of advanced processing feats not possible with standard pickups.

About the Next-Generation Serial GK System
Serial GK is a new digital instrument interface developed for BOSS guitar synthesizers. It features a secure, space-saving connection that offers a lower profile than previous GK products. BOSS BGK series cables are specially designed for optimum performance with the Serial GK system, and they’re more durable and easier to handle than 13-pin analog cables.

Compatible with Most Basses
The GK-5B’s ample width and six internal sensors support installation on nearly any electric bass with four, five, or six strings. Going further, you can adjust the sensor spacing from underneath the pickup to perfectly match the exact bridge spacing on your instrument.

This product is covered by a 5 year manufacturer warranty.

Although we are not authorised to determine if any repair is covered under warranty, if the item was purchased through World of Music, then we are often the best people to facilitate the claim for you and will do so as timely as possible. Warranty does not apply to cosmetic damage or faults that are a result of user neglect. Although your mate is really handy with a soldering iron, any product modification or home repair will also result in a void warranty.

Quite often, something perceived as a fault is as simple as a faulty cable or power issue so we always suggest checking over Frequently Asked Questions on the manufacturer website first. It can be a helpful approach to getting to the bottom of a problem and save you a lot of time in getting your gear back up and running!

Boss products ship via courier from either our Melbourne store or Roland’s warehouse in Sydney; fully insured for your peace of mind. Orders require a signature on delivery and we suggest using an address where someone will be present for the speediest delivery time. For delivery attempts with no one present to sign, your order will be taken to the courier depot and a card will be left for you to organise redelivery.
