At the 2021 Summer NAMM Show, BOSS has introduced the EURUS GS-1, a guitar with an onboard synth engine.

BOSS says that the EURUS GS-1 infuses a premium instrument with advanced guitar synthesis techniques, refined over more than four decades. The instrument has the sound, feel, and detail you’d expect from a pro-quality guitar, paired with a polyphonic BOSS synth engine.

And with onboard Bluetooth, you can customize synth sounds and control multiple performance parameters with the convenience of wireless connectivity.

Features:

  • “Cutting-edge” BOSS electronic guitar
  • Seamlessly switch between synthesizer and regular guitar sounds
  • Six onboard memories for storing different synth sounds
  • Premium playability with 24-fret neck, compound radius rosewood fingerboard, and offset double-cutaway body design
  • Two custom-designed pickups and five-way selector switch
  • Gotoh two-point tremolo bridge and locking machine heads
  • Independent ¼-inch outputs for synth and regular guitar sounds
  • Deep editing of synth sounds via dedicated app for iOS and Android devices
  • Onboard Bluetooth for connecting with editor app and optional EV-1-WL Wireless MIDI Expression Pedal
  • USB for system updates via a Mac or Windows computer
  • Synth engine runs on four AA batteries or optional PSA-series adaptor
  • CB-EG10 gig bag included
