Approved for fun!

Got my Fretlight FG-400 in the mail today! It came with a signed certificate assuring me that it was approved for fun -- thank goodness.

Supposedly, the guitar itself (which is being sold at Daddy's Junky Music in Portland) will teach me how to play electric guitar. The Fretlight comes with lights embedded in the fretboard -- to tell me where to put my fingers -- as well as computer software with instructions and lessons. I do need an amp to use it, so it's lucky that I live with someone who actually owns a real electric guitar (that he learned to play all by himself without the aid of computer programs). With an amp and a computer, I'm in shredding business! 

I'll keep you posted on my progress. In the meantime, here's a picture of the guitar (mine looks slightly different with a light-colored wood body):
