I am new to playing the guitar, and became extremely frustrated with trying to tune my guitar by ear. It was impossible for me, and my guitar sounded horrible! Then, I got this electronic tuner, and my guitar sounded like an actual guitar. It is very, very easy to use. All you have to do is play each open string, and tune it by the guage on the tuner. I could not be happier with this small little investment. I would highly recommend it - especially for people who are apparently tone deaf.

A great product.
Works very well, really precise and easy to use. Small enough that you can easily carry it with you in your pocket.
Update Nov. 2016: Have been using it for about half a year now. This is a very reliable, handy tuner. Even though it is digital, it shows an analog needle-type meter that allows for very precise tuning. It shows, for instance, when a string is going a bit higher after having been plucked (often an indicator that you need a new string). I have also seen people using it for brass and woodwinds, and it works just as well. A great little inexpensive toy that every musician should carry around.

This Tuner Rocks!
By Reverend Fuzzy
I searched through a plethora of chromatic tuners, most of which were pricey at best.
Then I found the Korg GA-1. It does everything one needs to tune an electric or acoustic guitar, or bass. Best part was, even with all the functions in place, the price was a LOT more reasonable than all the others I've seen. There is a 1/4" jack for direct connect, and an internal mic for acoustic mode. And to top it off, pressing the "sound" button generates tones, allowing the tuner to be used as a pitch pipe. I recommend this tuner highly.
