Powered by patented technology, the new Fretlight Guitar is , according to the manufacturers, the world's first real computer-powered electric guitar. Fretlight teaches beginner to advanced level players needing to hone their skills, through a series of computer-powered lights that are embedded in the guitar which illuminate chords, scales, and songs, signifying where the users fingers should be placed. It connects via the USB port to a Windows-based PC and is driven by educational software.
Professional guitarists such as Neal Schon of Journey and Gerry Beckley of America own Fretlight guitars.
