Ive been lookin into synth guitar for a while now, and i wondered if anyone knew what would happen if i ran my guitar through a bass synthesiser pedal? I was going to use a midi interface and cubase or reason, but im skint so gotta try something else.

Well, I guess you could always try it in a music store, but I'd recommend getting a Roland system of some sort.
