The Fretlight Guitar Sets a Shining Example for Hopeful Guitar Heroes

With Guitar Hero on extended leave and no new Rock Band title coming out this year, now is the perfect time to trade in our toy guitars for something a bit more substantial. Going from five colorful plastic buttons for six strings with 22 frets each is a daunting task however, especially when music games have trained you to respond to visual cues to guide your playing; you see a green circle, you hold down the corresponding button and strum. A regular guitar won't flash little circles in front your eyes to help you hit the right notes.
The Fretlight guitar does.
Optek Music Systems' Fretlight is a guitar learning tool like no other. It teaches by example, and that example is a series of red lights blinking on and off on the instrument's neck, letting you know exactly where your fingers need to be to play the music you wish to learn.
How does it work? Let's shed some light.

This is pretty interesting for someone like me, I'm obsessed with guitars.
But it's expensive as hell so I'm not getting this. + I don't like strats >_> <_<




Seems out of my price range but cool stuff.
