Allegedly, for neck stability to avoid phantom harmonic notes ringing and
confusing the synth electronics. (Some people take to attaching clamps to
the headstock to achieve the same end.) I suppose Roland were trying to
work out how to get a neck as stable as the Parker or Steinberger necks.
The main effect was, of course, to make the G707 and G77 look very silly.
(I intentionally bought a GR700 without the G707 controller, as I refuse
to give one house room !)
