    I know I've seen them (possibly in Musician's Friend?) but I don't remember much about them. If I can remember correctly, they attach to the headstock and shine down the fretboard.
  3. yup-

    also there are "impermeable spotlight" LED lights intended for aquariums that you could use-
    I got a couple from maplin and put them on my pedalboard, run off the 9v supply.

    You might want to consider luminescent paint for your side markers. There's another thread here about that, recommending a specific product.

    Also, I'd really suggest that you practice in the dark and learn to find your way around the neck by feel. It really helps with a pro appearance if you aren't staring at your neck while you play. My guitarist complains all the time when the lights are dim, and I have no problem at all since I stopped looking at the neck years ago. Just a friendly suggestion.
