CASIO
Instruments previously produced in Japan by Fuji Gen Gakki between 1987 and 1988.
The Casio company of Tokyo, Japan began producing keyboards in 1980. By the late 1980s, Casio unveiled the angular model MG-500 and vaguely Fenderish MG-510 electric guitars that could also be used as controllers by sending MIDI information. In 1988, Casio introduced the PG-380, a strat-styled guitar with an on-board synthesizer as well as a MIDI port. The PG-380 also has a companion module that takes up two rack spaces, and offers extra processing facilities.
Casio also produced a number of guitar-shaped "Digital Guitars" in 1987. The DG10 is more self-contained, while the DG20 can send processing information to an external synthesizer. Both models have plastic bodies, plastic strings and a number of buttons and built-in features.
