I had to trim the DB-25 cover down to fit it next to the 8 pin DIN connector.

With the cover slid down over the bent angle, the connector itself still stands proud, different from the original Roland connectors. However, this is fine for the male connectors since they adjoin the guitar synths, which won't be moved around, compared to the female connectors adjoining the guitars. For these cables, the other end connecting the guitars use DB-25 male connectors plugging into DB-25 females on the guitar.
