What is Freight Zealot?

To better explain how Fret Zealot works, let’s actually look at guitar tablature – the song learning numbers that many budding rockers rely on. Guitar tabs are musical notations that show you where to put your fingers on the fretboard, and it doesn’t require you to know how to read music.

How does Freight Zealot work?

The Fret Zealot LED strip fits just above the frets of a guitar. And it shows the guitarist exactly where to put their fingers to play. After playing a note, the Fret Zealot app detects the sound and lights up where the fingers go next. Pretty cool, right?

Designed to universally fit all guitars with standard 24.75″ and 25.5″ scale lengths, the system is as simple to install as it is awesome in scope. And both versions are compatible with both right-handed and left-handed instruments using the same setup process.
