It's good. I plan to try and make it last. Once you take it out of the clamshell packaging
the product is vulnerable. Invent a small case for it, I did. Found an old microphone
zipper-pouch.
I had a different tuner with no back lighting. Gigs are normally dark bars that barely have the
lights on. This tuner has the light. Believe me, it's essential.

The red L.E.D.'s let you know which string you're tuning. I play a 5-string bass and that
"other" tuner by the company which shall remain nameless (but starts with "K" and ends
in "org") you had to switch the button between "bass" or "guitar". This one just lights up
the "B" when tuning the low "B" on the bass as if it were a guitar string.
Seems about as stout as can be expected these days. I'm an old timer and can remember
the 60's when everything was built like a tank and built to last for 35-40 years or longer.

These days you just have to "baby" your equipment. Realize that things are built to be
as disposable as a Bic lighter and try not to rough handle them and maybe it will last you
an entire year.
I'm split on this. This is one item that every other year it seems the price gets cut in half.

I had one of these when I bought my first guitar 15 years ago... wasn't worth $19.99 then and isn't worth it now... I had it for a few years but quickly upgraded to a pedal tuner that I still have to this day that works amazing... I have no clue why Fender would allow their name to be put on this poor excuse for a tuner. Don't ever drop it... even on carpet... that's how mine broke. I'm a full time worship leader and youth pastor and I'll often have kids in my youth group just learning how to play guitar bring on of these tuners and their guitar to me and say "Tune it... I use this tuner but it still sounds out of tune"... So I pull out my Boss TU-88 that I keep in my desk drawer and tune it right up or do it by ear with a piano in the church... After 15 years I can't believe Fender hasn't done anything to improve this gadget and still allow their name to be put on it...

Good for a starting musician

Comments about Fender AG-6 Sparkle Tone Tuner:

I bought this tuner in a pinch to replace a Sabine ST-1100 which had been stolen. It's not the greatest of tuners, but for someone just starting out it's fine. The built in mic doesn't seem to work too well unless you're really close to the strings of an acoustic (within 3"). The pitch needle seems to get hung up once in a while, and you have to bump the tuner for it to work.

Comments about Fender AG-6 Sparkle Tone Tuner:

This sparkly tuner isn't worthy to the Fender name. It is very fragile, doesn't tune easily. Buy a Korg. Or better yet, save your pennies and invest in a pedal tuner, such as a Boss. Much more reliable, and build like a brick.

Comments about Fender AG-6 Sparkle Tone Tuner:

If you need a tuner and don't have the money to buy the boss tu-2. Then this would be a good alternative. But I would recommend the boss.

a waste of money

Comments about Fender AG-6 Sparkle Tone Tuner:

I bought this tuner as a practice rig tuner. Upon opening the package I was struck by how cheap and delicate it was. The battery cover fell off, never to snap back into place. "Oh well", I thought, I'll just velcro it to my pedalboard and plug it into my power supply. Next I plugged in my instrument and turned the unit on. The light went on but the tuning needle fails to move whatsoever. Apparently quality control was asleep at the wheel when this AG-6 was manufactured. In conclusion, do not waste your time or money on this piece of junk, save up for the boss pedal tuner. You'll be happy you did.

Comments about Fender AG-6 Sparkle Tone Tuner:

this is a great tuner for guitar acoustic and electric but its pretty much worthless for bass as mentioned below.. it works really well and it is very easy to tune your guitar with this.. just dont buy it for a bass.

Comments about Fender AG-6 Sparkle Tone Tuner:

I've had this tuner for about a year. I've dropped it quite a few times. It even popped open once but the sparkle cover popped back in easily. And it still works very well. It's small, easy to use. I normally use a universal adaptor with it. But occasionally use battery and for that I'm glad for the battery check feature!

Comments about Fender AG-6 Sparkle Tone Tuner:

I received this Tuner as a Free Gift from Musician's Friend for Purchasing a Fender Champion Model Guitar Amp. The Amp in itself was a great Buy and the Free Turner just made it even Better. The Amp is Great and the Tuner is right on, & Easy to read and Its Pretty all Sparkly. lol All I can say is Musician's Friend is Just that a Good Friend!

    Extremely accurate tuning. The acoustic guitar tuning microphone feature was particularly helpful. I even tried singing the Do Re Mi scale into it just for fun. Happy to say I could peg every note!

        Comments about Fender AG-6 Sparkle Tone Tuner:

        This review is for Musician's Friend, not the tuner, as it didn't work. I just purchased a Fender Mustang III v2, and the tuner was a freebie as part of the sale. I wanted to try my new amp with new strings, so I put a set on my Les Paul. This is the first amp that had a tuner feature, and I didn't think about using it. Anyway, the tuner battery light works, but the needle and indicator lights just do their own thing, with no rhyme or reason. Got out my trusty old Wittner and tuned it up. I called MF and the customer service gentleman apologized and sent me a new one. I know, I know, it was free, so what is the problem. Well, anything that they sell with Fender on it should work. I don't think that Musician's Friend has any peers when it comes to customer service. Thanks Guys!

            I haven't figured out the low rating on this. Hit and miss? Mine has been great. Easy to use, durable (has even fallen off of my amp onto concrete) and still worked fine. Yes it has battle scars. I use it for bass 4 and 5 string and also guitar. Plug in guitar nothing happens? Turn your volume control(s) up. I'm happy enough with it that i'm going to try the fender clip-on model also. Great buy lasted 5 yrs already

                Really love the analog meter with this tuner, but it doesn't hold up well. The power on/off switch is too sensitive and has turned on in the gig bag, draining the battery. Also, it went out of calibration. Would not recommend it.

                I bought the red one first and it busted soon after I bought it for no reason at all. I decided to give it a second try with the blue one and it has been great, until today when I got a new short scale bass and it didn't pick up anything and I broke my low E first thing.
