Benefits & Limitations

We love the Fretlight Wireless Upgrade Program. With all good things, there are benefits and limitations associated with the upgrade. Please take a moment to review the benefits and limitations associated with the upgrade.

Fretlight Confidence

When you purchase the Upgrade Program, your FG-500 series guitar will go through several steps by our guitar techs here at Fretlight. Your 8-pin DIN connection will be replaced with a wireless On/Off switch and mini-USB port (for charging).


Q: How long does the upgrade process take?
A: Generally, you should expect your upgrade to be complete within 30 days.
Q: What apps are available for the wireless system?
A: You can see all available apps here.
Q: Can I perform the upgrade myself?
A: We do not offer upgrade kits for customers. Your guitar must be sent in for the upgrade to be performed by a Fretlight certified tech.
Q: Can I purchase an add-on or dongle that will give my wired guitar wireless capabilities?
A: No.
Q: I have an Android device. Can I use it with the wireless system?
A: No. The Fretlight Wireless System is not currently compatible with Android devices.
Q: If I decide I don't like the wireless system, can I reverse the upgrade?
A: No. Once the upgrade is complete, it cannot be reversed.
Q: I reside in Hawaii, Alaska, or an International location. Can I send my guitar for an upgrade?
A: No. Because of shipping costs, it is more effective for you to order a new wireless guitar directly from the store.
Q: My guitar is broken. Can I send it for an upgrade/repair?
A: No. The cost of a new neck plus repair exceeds the cost of buying a new wireless guitar directly from the store.
Q: Can I upgrade an FG-400 or earlier series guitar?
A: No.
Q: My FG-500 Series Guitar is not listed as qualified for the upgrade. Can you make an exception?
A: No.
Q: I purchased a lot of wired content for my FG-500 series guitar - can I use it with the wireless system?
A: Unfortunately, no. However, the new wireless content is significantly less than the wired.

My 500 series guitar is one of the following: FG-507 Standard Acoustic, FG-511 Standard Electric, FG-521 Traditional Electric, FG-529 Pro Acoustic or FG-551 Orianthi Electric.
