About this project
Oh wait, it gets better!
Now you can play songs intuitively, not just one note or chord at a time. Fret Zealot helps you to play through entire songs on the FIRST try! After you play a note, our app detects the sound and lights up where you put your fingers next. Pretty cool, right?
The Fret Zealot app introduces intuitive learning with an impressive suite of features that we’ll continuously be improving to make the best guitar learning environment on the market! Coming soon for Android and iOS devices.
So what do first time users say?
How about professionals?

You Choose the Guitar
The craft of guitar design and acoustics has been perfected for decades. Others before us have made guitars with LEDs built-in and the feedback is always the same: the guitars sound terrible. That's why we leave the guitars to the experts and created a product you can easily add to the guitar of your choosing. Fret Zealot is a subtle, yet powerful, addition to your favorite guitar so you sound great, look great, and play even better!
Universal to All Full-Size Guitars
Fret spacing is standardized based on tone, meaning the dimensions of Fret Zealot will work on any guitar you choose. Fender, Gibson, Ibanez, it's all the same to Fret Zealot!
Perfect for all skill levels
Start with basic songs, chords, and note displays.
Learn key changes, improvisation, and more.
Create new songs with custom tuning chord displays. Quickly learn transposition techniques.
...and of course, light shows for fun!
YEARS in the Making!
That's right, Fret Zealot has been in development for years! So what took so long? Very simply: LED technology. The circuits were tested and programmed in 2012, but the price of LEDs thin enough to be lower than a fret was astronomical. With 144 LEDs on each Fret Zealot, it adds up and would have been too expensive for retail sale.

Risks and challenges
We have a deep appreciation for the consistency, dependability, durability, and playability that is demanded by all quality instruments. Fret Zealot was designed with a commitment to these qualities. As we move into mass production, it is important to us that we continue this level of quality. This phase of growth can be a challenge for any new product. Our past successes, strong design background, and experienced manufacturing partnerships will enable us to bring Fret Zealot to a successful launch this year. We will keep you updated throughout the entire process and we are always available to chat. If you have any questions about the process or timeline, contact us through Kickstarter direct messages or email support@FretZealot.com.
We're a small, growing, and dedicated team leveraging years of experience in industrial design, product development, embedded programming, and all facets of engineering. Our company is committed to delivering amazing products.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
