Combines 60’s style with cutting-edge computer technology.

Optek Music Systems, Inc. (http://www.optekmusic.com), a leading company dedicated to the development of interactive musical instruments, today announced the introduction of the Fretlight FG-431 Vintage Electric, the fourth model addition to the company’s line of Fretlight guitars. The world’s first computer-driven Telecaster-style guitar, FG-431 delivers classic Telecaster style with something no other guitar has, a patented fretboard containing embedded LED’S that light up to fingering positions teach individuals how to play or help to advance existing guitar knowledge in significantly less time than traditional methods.

Available in Natural and Classic Jet Black, the Fretlight FG-431’s classic perpendicular edges and unique shape complement the textured swamp ash body. The two vintage single coil pickups produce a tone reminiscent of the 60’s while still allowing the player to shape their sound as desired with the volume and tone controls and the 3-way pickup selector switch. The deep resonant tone comes from the vintage style fixed bridge and string-thru body design and the two-way truss rod and fully adjustable bridge saddles gives complete adjustability.

The FG-400 Series Fretlight Guitars enable beginner, intermediate, and advanced guitarists to learn chords, scales, and songs from a series of LED lights embedded in the guitar’s fretboard, which signify where the user’s fingers should be placed. Connected via the USB port and driven by a selection of lessons and educational software titles such as Fretlight Lesson Player with chords and scales, M-Player, Guitarz and Improviser, the Fretlight guitar allows users to learn, memorize, and play a wide variety of rhythm and lead guitar styles. With the ability to learn and create guitar music at the user’s individual pace, the Fretlight interactive system is designed to help players at every level.

Minimum requirements for PC users include Windows XP and a USB port and for Mac users, Optek’s Garageband plug-in and a USB port. The Fretlight FG-431 Vintage Electric is available now. MSRP is $549.95. To purchase or for more information, visit http://www.fretlight.com.
