Re: SV5470F Prestige and Roland GK-3 pickup (?)
Been a while since your posts, but,....
I am also a "13 pin guy" utilizing both VG Systems, and GR/GI Systems from Roland. I own a few Prestige RG's, and have owned a few Prestige S series.
The main issue with installing a 13 pin system in an S series isn't the space between the bridge and bridge pickup or pickup ring, it's the narrow edge where you should be installing the 13 pin outlet jack. That jack can NOT be installed on the edge. I've seen it installed on the back, ( way too uncomfortable when the cable is plugged in), and I've seen a cool pro installation replacing the 1/4 inch output jack angled on the front.It just isn't an easy installation for a "DIY" guy.
If you really want the GK on an S model, I highly recommend having a pro do the install.
Either way, good luck my friend.
