This is a great clip-on tuner from Fender. I have others in my arsenal but there are two features on this Fender California tuner that in my opinion set it apart from my others. It has a very large, bright, colorful display and it turns on automatically when clipped onto the guitar headstock. No more searching for that tiny little on/off button. There are a couple of other features that are worthy of note - the display moves and rotates easily to any angle for excellent viewing and there are nice soft rubber pads on both areas that come in contact with the guitar surface. If kept in the clip-on position, the tuner turns off after five minutes. Another big plus is the very affordable pricing by the folks at Musician's Friend. I don't think you can go wrong with ordering one or more of these terrific little tuners.

Pretty much junk

The third time I went to use this, I found that the battery cover fastener clips had broken from the interior spring pressure. Just bad engineering. Sorry Fender.

        Use it mostly in practice sessions, prefer pedal tuner for gigs. The auto turn-on is a good feature.

        Comments about Fender California Series Clip-On Tuners:

        It's quirky, in that it doesn't have an on/off switch - it comes on when you attach it to the peghead, and doesn't turn off until it's removed, so if you want to save the battery, you have to remove it every time you're finished tuning. That said It does a very good job of tuning, with a large screen that changes color when each string is in tune - makes for easy tuning. Even with the large screen, it is quite compact.

                      Could be a weak battery but it takes a long time to activate. If it didn't cost so much to ship it back I would return it. Into the junk box with the rest of the inexpensive tuners.
