An easy-to-read needle displays green when in tune but changes color to indicate sharp of flat notes.

my old head stock tuner got to where it wouldn't turn on, so I replaced it with a Fender "California Series" blue plastic see-thru model from China,, and I didn't expect very much. WOW I was knocked out! I put it on my telecaster, it turns green when it's in tune, with no drift, and has really simple bars which show too flat, too sharp. The guitar tuning was spot-on. Tried it on an acoustic, same result. I COULD NOT believe how accurate and easy it was. So, I thought, for this price, there has to be a catch. NOPE It did the same dead-on-the money job on my bass and my mandolin. It turns on automatically when you put it on the instrument. An added thing that really doesn't matter, but if you keep it on your head stock, it changes the letter it shows to whatever root key you're playing in. REALLY got pleasantly surprised by this one!

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.

        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.
