Plug into a world of possibilities...

Convert your electric guitar and get studio-quality acoustic sound or MIDI-compatible output at the flick of a switch!

The principle behind the patent-pending GHOST™ Pickup System is simple but the results are truly amazing... an affordable, modular pickup system featuring state-ofthe art MIDI compatibility in an easy-to-install package.

Graph Tech starts by strategically encapsulating custom-engineered piezo crystals in a set of Graph Tech’s patented String Saver™ Saddles. The GHOST Saddle Pickups use a natural compression that is very similar to an acoustic guitar; you can play as hard as you want without overloading the input channel or experiencing the dreaded piezo “quack”.

Most guitar bridges can be equipped with the GHOST Pickup System with the added benefi t of longer string life, improved sustain and full-bodied tone of the Graph Tech String Saver Saddles. Pick-ups are individually calibrated so you get precision balanced sets of GHOST Pickups every time!

The signal is then processed through one of Graph Tech's modular, plug-in pre-amps:

The Acousti-Phonic™ Modular Pre-amp captures the natural acoustics of your electric guitar, which can then be amplified or recorded direct, without feedback or mic placement problems associated with a live or studio amplified acoustic guitar.

The Acousti-Phonic features automatic switching for mono or stereo applications. Plug in a mono cable and the Acousti-Phonic automatically senses this and routes both the GHOST and magnetic pickups signals to the mono cable. Plug in a stereo cable and each pickup system is routed to a separate output cable which can be sent to separate signal processors, such as an acoustic guitar amp and a regular guitar amp.

Other features include an onboard piezo/magnetic mix volume, automatic battery off sensor eliminating the need for a bulky nine pin output jack, and auxillary 9V power to an active magnetic pickup system eliminating the need for two 9 volt batteries.

The Hexpander™ Modular Pre-amp features a proprietary harmonic dampening system that results in tracking that is unequalled by any other system on the market today, with responsive and accurate triggering.

The system features Graph Tech's exclusive Traktion™ switch allows the user to modify the tracking curve and optimize the hexaphonic output signal for their unique guitar/playing style/controller configuration. No more dead spots or need to slow your playing so that the system can keep up!

The hexaphonic output is MIDI and Virtual compatible and with its low-latency design perfectly complements today’s state-of-the-art controllers such as the Roland GR33TM, Roland VG88TM & V-BassTM, Roland GI-20TM, Axon 100TM and many more.

An optional pin-seven wiring harness is available for accessing a summed piezo signal.

Both the Acousti-Phonic and Hexpander Pre-amps can either “piggyback” on each other, or be used as stand-alone systems.

Optional Plug-in Switches allow you to flip between magnetic, piezo or hex outputs, or blend the three for an infinte palette of tonal possibilities.

The GHOST Pickup System is retrofi table for most Strat® style, Tele® style, Wilkinson®, Tune-o-matic, PRS®, and P/J-Bass bridges. Just refer to Graph Tech's main catalog for the GHOST Saddle Pickups that fit your guitar.
