Bellamy's last couple of guitars have been costing in excess of $5000 from the guy that builds them for him (can't remember the name ) but thats for the entire gutiar

otherwise I still think it would be rather expensive

switch guitars often have midi built right in. i think fender still makes a strat with midi built in but im not sure. as far as adding it to your guitar i have no idea.

yeah...He has a guy in devon who custom builds his guitars with good ol' effects embedded, for a LOT of money. They are really good.....I did know the guy's name, but I've forgotten...Sorry... Basically...It will cost a lot....

ah, that MIDI stuff, the Roland system is like $100 for the pickup, and another $300+ for the thing that converts the audio into MIDI signals.

I forgot about that since he's got some other strange MIDI stuff going on lately (he could get the guy to fit the Digitech Whammy into his guitar so he's set up some MIDI system with a bunch of buttons on it)


edit:
$200 for the pickup
http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Roland-GK3-Guitar-Pickup?sku=700379

then $600 for the the thing that does the audio-midi and also has your plenty basic synth sounds allread in there, and the ability to mix them in with your regular guitar signal http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Roland-GR20-Guitar-Synthesizer-with-GK3-Divided-Pickup?sku=150097


or if you're going to use MIDI to control something else (into a keyboard or into your computer) you can just get this which only does the conversion http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Roland-GI20-GKMIDI-Interface-?sku=150094


edit2: this is old but might be of interest to oyu http://guitargeek.com/rigview/562/

The musiciansfriend page for http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Roland-GR20-Guitar-Synthesizer-with-GK3-Divided-Pickup?sku=150097 has some soundclips, theres really a lot of stuff you can screw around with (and I've just realised that the GR20 comes with the pickup allready included, so only $600 and you can get started ). Along with various synth sounds theres also some basic effects for them too (delay, chorus)

you can plug it into your regular amp (theres some kind of setting to mix in the MIDI signal with your regular guitar signal for even more options), or into the PA, or into a keyboard amp or a bunch of other options
