I am exactly the target audience for this, part of the "bought a guitar to unsuccessfully impress women in my dorm room, now use it to play a few songs for my kids" demographic. This will be a great way to level up my skills a bit without buying a new guitar or spending time on private lessons.

@kleneway thanks for the kind words! I may or may not have gotten my first guitar for the exact same reason ;-)

Fret Zeppelin is a state-of-the-art LED addition to your guitar. It fits just above the frets and shows you exactly where to put your fingers to play anything.

Amazing idea. Is it ready? Where can I buy it? Or just a Kickstarter right now?

I'm skeptical about the value proposition... How is this going to avoid frustration? You can't help it: learning to play an instrument is tough, and requires a lot of hard times. Maybe we'll gain few second compare to watching a guy showing us on a video, but I'm not sure that the frustration comes from those seconds... I have also a more practical question: how is this supplied with energy?

@edtheron I think acoustic guitar became "electric guitar" with this tool.

@edtheron the time savings are actually pretty tremendous when you don't have to spend time and energy transposing what you see on a screen/tabs to the fret board. Having what you want instantly displayed is incredibly effective for learning and you can concentrate on improvement versus setup time. Aside from that, lessons are super expensive and take time and are rarely convenient. The battery back is on the back of the guitar right now, but we're going to reposition it to the head stock and attach it similar to how you would store a capo when it's not in use.

Not sure as this may already be in, but it would be nice if this can also display different fretting technics visually - for example fast blink for hammer-ons, or pulse for vibrato, etc...

@maria_shanina oh definitely! We don't have videos of those niche options, yet, but the LEDs are full spectrum and can be faded or pulsed in any way imaginable. The possibilities are literally endless and we're looking forward to incorporating all the features our pre-order customers want!
