Re: Anyone using a Graphtech Ghost System for midi access...
Most of the GK/GR models actually has a setting for the various types of hexaphonic bridges/pickups besides just the Roland GK.
I know that on the VG-99 (I own one) with the 1.04 update they introduced the "pickup type" option which has GK3, GK-2a, Piezo (flat response), Piezo F (Fishman), Piezo G (Graphtech), Piezo L (L.R. Baggs) and Piezo R (RMC) which compensates for technology differences in the pickups.
I've tried this on a piezo equipped Brian Moore guitar (my own guitars have GK pickups) and the tones can be somewhat similar but are different in some respects.
I find modeling acoustic guitars seems to be more realistic sounding with the piezo type bridges whereas high gain distorted type tones is subtly different (not worse, not better, just a little different - hard to describe).
