I dont actually have one myself but played all you mentioned at the SamAsh near me a while back.
I think the Axon is the best; but the Yamaha g50 is about the same. The Yamaha used 12 bit converters to the Axon 16 bit but its hard to notice.
Yamaha had some real nice auto setups with their module; the TX81Z still sounds great to me.
The Roland was actually okay too. But the Axon is best.

Roland Gi10 is Ok but you'll find it only in the second hand market.Cheap and neat.

I've actually had almost every guitar synth since the early Roland non midi units. They actually tracked the best but did not even store patches. The piezo pickups in the quitars like the Brian Moore's are by far the quickest tracking. I've got the new Yamaha unit and a GM-70 with the old pickup and a GR-30 & VG-8. The Brian Moore and almost any interface work well but the Yamaha and the GR-30 track great. I probably going to unload several of my units if you're interested. It also makes a great difference what you're doing with the guitar synths. I'm just triggering a Digitech Studio Vocalist with mine of stage right now and you don't have to worry about the speed of the tracking too much for that but if you're going to program sequences or play live keyboard sounds you need the best tracking you can get. The Roland Ready Strat is ok but the piezo pickups are definately the way to go if you're really serious.
