Ibanez Guitars with the Roland GK2A? - New Ibanez Roland rea

A guy from a music store here in Portugal told me that Ibanez has a line of guitars that come with the Roland GK2A pickup installed, like the F**der Roland-ready St**t. Is this true? Does someone have one of these guitars? Wich models come with this pickup (RG's, S-series, etc.)?

I would like to buy a Roland-ready guitar (preferably Ibanez, of course), since i bought a couple of months ago a Roland GR-33 Guitar Synth and would like to have a Roland-ready guitar to substitute the external GK2A that i have mounted in my St**t.

Thanks.

Those are the new J Custom models for this year. They're still a few months away. You can see pics on my site, links on the NAMM 2001 update page.

Too bad it's the Roland GK-2A pickup. It's such a bad pick-up.

Given the fact that Ibanez has piezo-double-edge, I don't understand why they didn't take advantage of this for the MIDI pickup...like Godin does for example.

Piezo pickup is so much better than regular pickup for MIDI capture.
