Fretted Instrument Tools
Since most of the day-to-day maintenance of fretted instruments involves the strings, it's no surprise that string winders and other string tools are the biggest share of the lineup. You can go as basic or as fancy as you want, too: the Dunlop Roadpro Guitar String Winder or On-Stage Stands Guitar String Winder are perfect drop-in choices for your case, while the Ernie Ball PowerPeg Battery Powered String Winder and Power Peg Pro String Winder are right at home in a fast-paced workshop environment. Need to trim your strings, too? Then check out something like the D'Addario Planet Waves Pro-Winder String Winder/Cutter, which is available bundled with XLR8 String Lubricant/Cleaner if you want a total string solution.
You can, of course, also find dedicated trimmers in this section, like the CruzTOOLS GrooveTech Guitar/Bass String Cutters. And those are only scratching the surface of a category that also includes tools and kits as versatile as the Ernie Ball Musician's Tool Kit, Fender Guitar Work Station, Dunlop Formula 65 Neck Cradle Maintenance Station and CruzTOOLS Groovetech Guitar/Bass 10-in-1 Multi-Tool. You can even gear up for on-the-go maintenance with the CruzTOOLS Stagehand Compact Tech Kit; the options are virtually endless!
There are a few tools in this section that just about any fretted instrument owner should have close by, and if you're the type who wants to take all your maintenance into your own hands, then more's the better - you'll find all the essential gear within these pages. Fretted instrument tools run the gamut from in-case accessories to professional-grade workshop equipment, so no matter where you stand on the hands-on spectrum, there's sure to be something great waiting here for you.
