I would have to disagree. I have been using git-synths since they came out.
in the past tracking was horrindous BUT now we have "stnth-ready guitars" 
parkers etc..... i own a Godin (Canadian based Co.) which has (as do the 
Parkers ) a built-in roland p/u mounted AS/under the bridge . this 
the tracking rate by a very very noticable ammount (i also have a 69 strat 
a Roland p/u ATTACHED --not near the tracking ability---)
Also it is not the guitar synth that has tracking "problems" a guitar 
wnts to hear a clean pick and i mean clean IE: Mr Fripp. so you may want 
try to work on your techniqe a little/lot :-)
I play one way w/out the git synth running and try the above refined 
technique when using a synth.
Finnally , i dont use MANY tone modules BUT i have found my Godin works 
with the Yamaha JV1080 and 2080 Tone modules
don't give up.
