Owning a Fretlight has been a great experience. I tried playing once when I was 12, but I didn’t catch on. I didn’t have the patience to memorize chords and scales, or to learn songs for that matter. A Fretlight is like having a map—it helps me understand where I am with options to go different routes. The best part is being able to learn something new quickly, then turning off the LEDs to test how much I’ve retained.

I'm a self taught guitarist, and frankly had a lot of trouble just learning scales and patterns on the neck by translating charts and sheet music to the actual fretboard. Fretlight guitars make improving your playing so much simpler and frankly more fun. Being able to lay out a scale on the frets and be able to play around with improvisation and phrasing without worrying about finding a note from a chart you're looking at makes a huge difference, and I can already see a noticable improvement in a few short days after trying a Fretlight because I was more focused on playing the instrument as opposed to playing a chart.

Playing my new FG507 and LOVING IT!!! Getting this is one of the best decisions I've ever made. I've been playing off and on for about twenty years, but never made it past strumming basic chords. I've always been frustrated because I couldn't seem to evolve beyond that. Finding guitar tabs on the internet has been somewhat helpful, but having to constantly look back and forth from the screen to the fretboard is both frustrating and confusing. 

I've had my Fretlight for two weeks and I've already learned to play "And I Love Her" by the Beatles and the intro to Hendrix's "Hey Joe." I've tried many times to learn "Hey Joe" using tabs, but I was never able to get it. With the Fretlight, I learned it in one night (the intro, that is). Being able to listen to the music, slow it down, and follow the lights on the fretboard made it INCREDIBLY EASY! Hint - for it to sound right you really need to get the timing down.

 I just want to say thanks to Rusty and all the Fretlight Team for such an amazing learning tool. Also, I want to give a shoutout to Greg and Jason in customer service. They've both been very helpful answering my questions. FRETLIGHT ROCKS!!!

Thanks for such a great product, I have saved hundreds of dollars on music lessons, not to mention the time and gas that I would have spent meeting with an instructor. I played the guitar a lot in my teens up to my college years, then put it away due to many other obligations. Now in my mid 50's, it time to bring back that second childhood. It's not as simple as riding a bike, the fingers are a little stiff and the memory isn't what it use to be, but I'm sure having a great time. I have told so many others about your product. I remember learning to play the keyboard in the 70's using the keys that light up. There were not a lot of songs available, but it was a great tool to learn chord progressions and left/right hand dexterity. The concept of adding this learning principal to a guitar was ingenious. I'm looking forward to new products and hope to see a lot more background tracks for blues and jazz and some good old rock n roll. Thanks again.

I've always admired people who could play the guitar, and I never thought of myself as being able to play as well. When I learned about the Fretlight guitars and heard from friends how the LED system worked, I had to try it for myself. I have the Fretlight Acoustic, and have to tell you that the guitar is beautiful, and the LED system makes learning and playing so much easier. I've been able to pretty quickly play some of my favorite songs. I never dreamed of being able to play an instrument, and now I can actually play the guitar!

My initial goal was just to be able to play my favorite riff. With the Fretlight, I was there in a day. Not having to go back and forth between tab and the fretboard is a life-saver, you can just look at the lights!

I've picked up the guitar on and off, but have always been a piano player and haven't been able to translate that skill to guitar. I had no idea I could learn an instrument so quickly; so you can imagine my excitement once I started the Fretlight program and was playing my favorite Avett Brothers song in no time! Not only that, but I learned and memorized chords that helped solidify my progress. Awesome product.

Using my Fretlight guitar, I learned to play one of my favorite songs in just one night! It really helped to motivate me to keep playing and not give up. My husband has been playing for years and couldn't believe how easy I picked up the song using the Fretlight system!

Being a Pro Keyboard Player for over 30 years, I've always been a bit envious of the guitar player players. Tried a few times to learn but always got frustrated reading Tablature. Finally, a guitar method that makes sense, put the Tablature right on the fretboard. Plugged it and in one night was playing 'Day Tripper' 'Pretty Woman' & 'Wonderwall'. Next up, 'Stairway to Heaven' I can't imagine learning to play any other way. And if your a seasoned player, what better way to learn your songs? Now if I could only get my Piano to light up.

If I had not discovered Fretlight, I would not be playing today. Being severely dyslexic, I am unable to ever learn to read music. Fretlight is the ONLY learning system that actually works, and is the only musical instrument that helps me overcome my disability. I even use my Fretlight when I record in the studio and perform on stage.

The Fretlight Guitar is truly a remarkable learning tool….I’m learning very quickly and have finished beginners 101 & 102 and I’m now ready to start the intermediate 101 program and I have also bought some of the Hal Leonard Fretlight DVD courses… Each day brings new knowledge of the guitar to me and my playing skill continues to grow! And the best part is that others friends and family have noticed too.

Thank you for the reply, I just wanted to let you know the 1st fretlight that Optek advertise on magazine back in 1995 I went and bought it, then it was improved 2002, I went and bought another one with humbucker pick up. I learned and visualized all of the modes, minor, major scales and pentatonic. Now that I am teaching here in Kandahar Afghanistan with the U.S Army so I decided to buy the most latest visualization guitar tool the Only Optek fretlight 2013 I have showed it to some guys out here and pretty amazing way to memorize the scales and chords and learning songs. I will definitely be your satisfied customer and will buy more of your products esp the fret light ready videos. I have been demonstrating to my comrades an effective way of learning scales, chords, songs some guys thinking of buying one. Thanks for the support. God Bless America.

I just bought the pro guitar package, i know it will help me learn the other 27 or so scales i haven' t learned yet. I've been playing for 15 yrs. i think its gonna be a great learning tool and quickly take me out of my rut. It makes sense to be able to see the scale right before your eyes instead of in a book or on a screen. If this works well, i'm gonna recommend it to everyone i can.

As a composer this guitar and software combination makes it so easy for me to arrange and compose anywhere on the fretboard. Any impromptu guitarist will benefit from not having to rely on books and charts in order to work on scales, arpeggios and solos, what an amazing instrument!

The Fretlight line of guitars is a great way to build and/or improve your guitar vocabulary. Whether you are an experienced player such as myself or just learning, Fretlight will allow you to accomplish more in less time using its unique illuminated fretboard. It should be noted that these guitars also play surprisingly well enough to be used as a go-to guitar for live performance.

FYI - I have a college buddy who is an extremely talented and very well respected luthier here in the KC Metro area. He builds his own guitars and also plays in a few bands. I had him check the 461 over and he was amazed at how nice this guitar is. He called me with the whole, Dude!, Holy crap this is nice and the software works awesome!. He is a very talented player and is not easy to impress about anything guitar, but his exact words about your software and LED setup were, this is a very nice system, I'm impressed.

You folks rock. I love your product, I bought it for my daughter and it makes learning guitar great. My kid is crazy for iPhone stuff and it will help her practice more if we had an app and all the other conveniences i mentioned. i work in electronics and computers and i know that it is not magic and it takes money, time and serious work to create technology and software, but this is on my wish list. good luck in everything your doing, great job linking up with Guitar Tab Pro, i tell everyone who will listen about your products. best regards,

I have played everyday from 45 mins to 2 hours per day for the last year and a half. I have made a great deal of progress and my 12 year old daughter is in School of Rock in Portland and we play together almost nightly. She likes to break down the song and learns it very quickly usually without the Fretlight. Anyway I think I have improved greatly and the Fretlight is very helpful and I do enjoy playing actual songs…
