The Fender AG-6 retails for around $20, and manages to put a few appreciated features in for the low price.

The backlit display enables tuning to be possible in dark settings, another nice feature and the needle is very stable and gives accurate results.

Most cheap analog guitar tuners require that a button be pressed to select the string that is being tuned- not so with the Fender AG-6. This is instead done automatically, so tuning literally only takes a few seconds to accomplish.

Just plug in your guitar and tune it up. :wink:

I've seen that twenty times before, and it doesn't help. Can some one please tell me straight from the manual?

Actually, I just bought this Tuner (used), and have scouered Fender.com for the Instruction Manual or an e-mail link to Customer Service, and have come up blank on both.
Is anyone aware of a Site/Link to Download the Users Masnual to the "Fender AG-6 Automatic Guitar Tuner"?

This is an old post but someone may still be looking for an answer.

Before turning the unit on, press and hold down the calib/batt switch to check the condition of the battery on the battery meter.

Then either plug in your electric guitar to the input side of the AG-6 or if tuning an acoustic guitar without electronics placing the AG-6 near the front of the guitar and limiting any background noise should work . You will not need to press a button to select which string you are about to tune. The AG-6 will detect it and the corresponding light will turn on when it is tuned within range.

Turn on the AG-6 and start by striking the low E (thickest) string while open. This is the number 6 string or 6E. Slowly turn the guitars low E tuning key untill the red LED below the 6E marking on the AG-6 lights up. Continue stricking the open string and turning the key untill the needle centers on zero and the 6E light remains on.

Repeat this for the open A string untill the 5A light turns on and the needle centers on zero.

Repeat for the remaining four strings, 4D 3G 2B and 1E, being careful not to over tighten and break them.

Tip: It may be a good idea once the low E string is tuned, to tune the rest manually, especially new strings or strings way out of tune. Then tune again using the AG-6 tuner.

If installing fresh strings you will probably need to stretch each string and re-tune, possibly several times, before they hold their tuning.
