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 !)
