Comments about Fretlight FG-5 Electric Guitar with Built-In Lighted Learning System:

I purchased this for my wife who has dyslexia which made converting graphic images to the guitar difficult for her. Enter Fretlight; I have never seen anyone finger the first position chords faster. Minutes. Not a bad little axe either. Christmas sale price was great but open box.
Got an excellent response from Dragon at the San Jose store.

Comments about Fretlight FG-5 Electric Guitar with Built-In Lighted Learning System:

Bought this cause I've always wanted one for exploring scales and chords. This model only lights the 0-5 frets which is perfectly fine with me, but the software doesn't accommodate this limitation (it assumes your guitar lights up all the frets. So if you want to do CAGED exercises in the 0-5 range you won't be able to (unless they issue a software update that accommodates this model). The craftsmanship is some of the worst I have ever seen- poor patch job where the fretboard broke near the nut, fretboard peeling up, gross grease marks on the neck, bad finish work, tuners that absolutely are the worst. Setting intonation (which was way off) was a chore since the tuning wouldn't hold. The color is more butter tinted white. In general, this is a guitar for doing light practice work so don't buy this if it's going to be your main guitar. Definitely don't buy it as someone's first guitar.
