FRETLORD'S FRETLIGHTZ Guitar & Bass L.E.D. Fret Board Illuminator accessory instantly clips onto the headstock strings behind the nut and/or velcro mounts the clip base onto the body of a guitar, bass or other stringed instrument. FRETLIGHTZ projects a brilliant HIGH OUTPUT LED light onto the fret board providing a point of reference when performing on dimly lit stages, pitch dark clubs, or practicing areas, also assisting players with limited vision handicaps.
FRETLORD'S spokesperson, founder, president, and CEO, Kevin Sciortino stated ” This accessory is a must have as it offers amazing lighting effects making your frets, strings, hands, knobs, bridge & guitar body illuminate. You can also design color theme setups by mixing primary RGB colors and create an interactive flashing effect with the shadows of your strumming hand and giving off the effect of multiple color changes as the fretting hand transverses across the fret board. The product provides much needed illumination of the fret board for any stringed instrument player. Plus, it looks cool providing an attention grabbing lighting effect for the spectator. The simple design requires no modifications to the instrument and is easily removable.”
