I used this for the first time yesterday. I had just bought it recently. The overall construction probably could be better, although it is probably OK.

The quick string winding aspect of it works very well and the string cutter does work. The cutting action doesn't feel very precise, but the cutting edges did cut through the strings pretty well. I don't know how long the cutting edges will stay sharp.

I do recommend having a pair of needlenose pliers handy to use along with this tool, because I always pull the string ends tight to take up slack with needlenose pliers during the winding process.

I have to tell you that the opening in the bridge pin puller part of the tool doesn't fit a Martin bridge pin on my HD-28 Martin guitar. The opening in the tool is too small. However, if you tilt the tool sideways to the bridge pin and pry, then you might be able to pop the bridge pin out.

If the product received was the same as the one shown in the photograph, it would have been an excellent tool. What you truly receive is a cheap plastic (not resin impregnated) handle with scallops in the side of it which weaken it even more. Notice the one in the picture has no scallops. Instead of the cutter being made of fine tool steel, as it appears in the photograph, it is constructed of stamped sheet metal with a high chromium content. This means the tool will wear out rather quickly. In conclusion, this tool would only be good for a couple of years at best before it would have to be replaced. Planet Waves claims it has a lifetime warranty, but I'm sure they don't honor that warranty. If they did, they'd lose too much money. This device was never designed to last a lifetime. This will become immediately apparent when you take it out of the box. Overall, a huge let down. I would have paid twice the price if it had been constructed as shown in the photograph.

                The pro string winder / cutter functioned perfectly. Being new to the game, it didn't take long to get the hang of removing the bridge pegs. I had broken a string and decided to change out all with a new set of D'Addario acoustic custom light strings and this tool accomplished the process without a hitch.

                          I bought this for restringing my guitars and it does everything it is supposed to. I especially love the cutter! The Pro-Winder is great for unwinding but is kind of awkward when trying to use it to wind, as its just a little strange getting it started. All in all a good product and I would recommend. Also seems very sturdy. As long as your not slamming it or jumping on it, this thing is going to survive simple drops and things of that nature.

                              Had it before with my old guitar. Sold it with the Pro Winder. Got a new guitar and bought it again because it's the best.

                                  Honestly, this is probably one of my most favorite tools I carry around with me. It makes changing strings so easy and quick. It will clip any strings, including bass guitar strings, without any problem. Works on my acoustic and electric guitars as well as on my bass which has the larger P-bass style tuners. The bridge pin puller is a nice addition too.

                                  I keep it in my bag along with some extra strings all the time. Its so cheap too I don't know why everyone wouldn't have one.

                                  My only complaint is that it gets squeaky after a while, but some silicon helped out with that.

                                        Works great for a string winder and cutter. The bridge pin extractor didn't work as well as the ones on a regular string winder but overall I'm happy with it.
