The Fretlight Guitar is the Best Tool to Improve Your Playing.

" I've been a musician for decades. Someone please tell me why a guitarist wouldn't want tabs playing solos, riffs, arpeggio's, scales, modes, and chords playing right on the neck of their guitar? This is an unbelievable tool...

30 Years of Making Great Guitars

Read our story

A Message from the inventor

30 years ago I was a rhythm player looking to learn my scales. I invented the Fretlight guitar to help me do just that, but I didn't want it to be a toy - I wanted the Fretlight to be a great playing guitar. I thought it was a waste of time to constantly look back and forth from guitar neck to scale chart. With the Fretlight, you keep your eyes on the neck and instantly the muscle memory starts to happen much faster.

J. Rusty Shaffer, Inventor of the Fretlight guitar and CEO of Optek Music Systems, Inc.

Fretlight Features that give you an Edge

The Katana Fretlight Leveling System

We give every customer the option at the time of purchase to have their Fretlight guitar fret-leveled using the Katana Fret-Level system. We want your guitar playing great right out of box.

This system offers the highest precision available because it creates the exact progressive curve created by the string tension when sanding the frets. Fret leveling with the strings on and tuned to tension with the correct neck relief allows a fret level with best accuracy while removing the minimum amount of fret material.

The Fretlight Wireless guitar connects to virtually any device. Whether you're in your home and want to work on a laptop, or on the road working with your tablet or at the beach with your phone, you can keep playing and never miss a beat.

The Fretlight system utilizes a long-life recharable Lithium-ion battery which is neatly tucked inside the body of the guitar. So whether you're sitting, standing, in a studio, or jamming at a friends house, you've got the freedom to have the Fretlight system under your fingers any time.
