when i set my tone knobs to 1 or 0 and switch to the bridge pickup, it has an electronic tone. i hope that helps a little bit.

check out the electro harmonix pog

it does Bass and 12 string and 18 string(not as good as the real thing but pretty darn good) and organ

the organ with distortion can get pretty crazy and awesome in my opinion. check out blue orchid by white stripes for an idea of one of the sounds you can get with it

At a guitar convention 2 years back at the Roland table, there was a guy whose explorer did Sax sounds and synth sounds, so Boss/Roland probably makes some sort of modular.

Try the EHX MicroSynth, or something like that. I did see a Korg tube-driven synth unit for a guitar once at a pawnshop, $200. I don't know what it was. But that might be a little closer to what you're looking for, if you're willing to spend some cash and look around for one.

That reminds me- Roland makes a synth pickup for guitar, but I think you need to buy a processor to actually use it.

If you have some big bucks to spend, check out the high end Godin guitars, they have built in synths, there also beautiful guitars

Even the older Roland synths are great. I just saw a band tonight where the 2nd guitarist used a Roland synth for just about every song - sax, piano, odd effects, organ, keys, etc. With the Roland GK pickup that thing tracks pretty well.

I hear the problem with the synths and midis is that the signal is slightly delayed and you're gonna play something just a fraction of a second before you hear it and that can take some time getting used to...which I'm sure playing sax on a guitar would take a while to get used to as well

There is a slight delay, but the majority wouldn't even hear or notice it. The latest Roland hex pickup is the best to date, tracks very well.

The GR20 is an amazing synth. I spent a lot of time with one of those, it's loaded with so many different sounds. I was going to buy one, but in all reality I wouldn't even use it other than occasionally fooling around with it.
