Every guitar players essential first "tool".
It wont take you long to break your first string and when you put the new one on - thats when you will realise how essential your winder is! Save your wrist!!! The mechanism enables you to wind your string on quickly and easly - super fast - without giving yourself a clicky wrist!!
Got the new string on - nicely wound into place but you now have about 6 inches of nasty string ready to poke your eye if you leave it there! You need to cut that string down. The string cutter on this device is simple, safe and practical. Your eyes are now safe!
If you play acoustic guitar then the string is held in place over the bridge by a long peg. This peg tends to bury itself in to the wood due to the pressure of the strings placed on it over time. Rarely you will be able to pull the peg out with your fingers and it can be quite dangerous getting knifes - both for you and your guitar. A good pair of plyers works a treat but why bother if you have your little guitar tool to hand?
For £4.99 its a very worthwhile investment and I would say an essential tool for every guitarist.
