An innovative guitar with breakthrough technology for mastering the fretboard.
The Fretlight FG-511 is all about getting started fast and making music now.
No messing with various pickups, just plug in and play. The FG-511 sports their custom designed compact alder body that is connected to the same great Fretlight neck that all of the non-pro models use. The Fretlight neck includes a patented Advanced Polymer Fretboard and the worlds only built-in LED learning system. The JT-53 built-in tuner provides a convenient solution for fast, accurate tuning. The FG-511 is finished with closed back tuners and a fixed bridge, which means you'll have consistent, low action and great playability. A two-way truss rod and fully adjustable bridge saddles give you complete adjustability for a playing experience that can only be described as pure heaven. And don't forget, the Advanced Polymer Fretboard and maple neck gives your tone a sustain that you've only dreamed about!
The NEW Fretlight FG-500 guitar sports some significant changes, all aimed toward making the Fretlight the world's easiest guitar to play.
The FG-500's electronics have been upgraded to an all-new Sonix Flash chipset, complete with on-board capability for future growth, and fully compatible with all existing Fretlight software. The new high efficiency electronics produce the brightest and most consistent LED lights ever. Whether you're lighting a simple riff, or a scale across the entire fretboard, the lights will maintain a consistent brightness.
Additionally, all FG-500 guitars have a Stratabond neck. Stratabond is a state-of-the-art engineered hardwood that yields uncommon strength and rigidity across ever changing environmental conditions. Perfect for a guitar necks that are susceptible to expansion and contraction due to varying humidity levels. The FG-500's Stratabond birch neck will provide very consistent performance for years to come.
The Fretlight lighted guitar learning system allows a player to light-up songs, over five thousand chords and scales patterns, and riffs right on the neck of the Fretlight guitar. The Fretlight connects to a PC or Mac and there are lessons, songs and interactive videos available which all light up the guitar.
