Here’s a simple way to add some attention-getting light-show action to your stage guitar.

Andrea Ettore and Bryan Davidson have come up with a guitar-mountable module containing six colored lasers. The beams shine toward your guitar’s headstock and are virtually undetectable…until you move your fretting hand into them. Then the lasers reflect on your hand and fingers and glow brightly on your fingertips.

The beams also reflect on the fretboard, making it look as if it has lights embedded within it.

Very simple concept, very cool execution.

The device attaches with a gentle adhesive mounting, and it has a small battery pack with a switch that also mounts on the guitar. The module’s height and angle can be adjusted for optimum performance, as shown in the illustration below, and the modules are offered with a choice of red, green or blue lasers.

That all sounds great. But first, Ettore and Davidson need a little funding.

For that, they’ve turned to Kickstarter. As of this posting, they’ve made $1,186 toward their $7,000 goal, with 18 days left to go.

Check out their Kickstarter page for details, photos and videos of the lights in action.
