The Lighted Learning System

The Fretlight Guitar Neck

The Fretlight neck has 132 surface mount super-bright LED's mounted on a super thin .031" circuit board. Each circuit board is tested for up to 20 hours before being mated with its polymer fretboard partner. This ensures that even if there's a failure, it's caught at the board stuffing level. Once its mated to the fretboard it's powered up again to check for the appropriate brightness. After that its sealed and prepared for packaging for its trip to the guitar factory.

It's in the Design

The design that was chosen insured that a standard guitar factory could build the technology intensive Fretlight neck with no special processes or tools. Standard frets, standard tooling and a standard guitar factory were key elements in bringing the modern day Fretlight to a real playable product. Bottom line: It had to play great, and it does! Inside the heel of the neck is the Bluetooth transceiver and Sonix microprocessor that make the Fretlight light those great songs, chords and scales that we all want to learn.

Look Once - No Back and Forth

It sounds logical and quite simple, right? Move the patterns a few feet from that book in front of you to the neck of your guitar. Instead of looking back and forth repeatedly, look once - at the neck of the Fretlight.

Ask yourself this question: Look down right now at your computer's keyboard. Where did they put the letters and numbers? On a piece of paper to the side of the keyboard? Nope. They put them on the keys for a reason.
