Fret Zealot adds on lights and learning to your guitar for $199

Fret Zealot is a device from entrepreneur Shaun Masavage, co-founder and CEO of Edge Tech Labs.

It is mainly designed to help beginners learn and players look like all lit and freaky on stage. LED embedded guitars have quickly become commonplace even  if some might be  expensive. Now Fret Zealot has something that can turn your guitar into a laser light show in a matter of minutes.

Guitarists can buy a Fret Zealot as a $199 add-on to any acoustic or electric guitar. This kit sticks right onto a fretboard and connects to a small wireless box that receives signals from any  smartphone. The app is also simple and easy to use. One can play various songs included in the system and it lights up the associated frets. People  can slow down playback so they can practice each lick methodically and it also helps in learning chords and scales. There are also light show features that make the  fret board glow.

The kit can work as a great learning tool. The entire system is quite rugged, though, so if you’re adding it to your guitar it will stay in place for a long time. The team sold 1,288 of the devices when it ran its Kickstarter earlier this year and they’re accepting pre-orders to ship this month.

These sorts of learning and effects systems are hard to do right but Fret Zealot seems to have nailed the formula. Owing to the fact that the LEDs are embedded into the fretboard you have the choice of using or removing the entire system. You can add this kit to any guitar including acoustics, classical, and electrics and it is unobtrusive when not in use.

The Fret Zealot might be a clever and usable solution to the problem of guitar education.
