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.

    Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Pro-Winder String Winder/Cutter:

    These string winders are great! It winds the strings easily, it cuts the excess strings, and even has a bridge pin puller. If only they could add allen wrenches to it for floyd rose types of guitars, this tool would be even better. I really like DiAddario Planet Waves stuff. They produce great inventions.

    I put it in my go bag of tools to use in a pinch. It is intended to be multi-functional, and in a pinch might get the job done. When opportunity provides I'd rather use my individual tools for these purposes. This is a gadget that looks cool, but isn't...
