I was skeptical that I really needed a "tool" to help me turn the tuning pegs, or that a simple device could really cut string replacement time in half. But I did want something better than needle-nose pliers to cut the ends off, so I decided to give this a shot. Wow! My skepticism was dead wrong -- this thing does everything it's advertised to. It's hard to explain how it winds the strings so much faster, but as soon as you pop it on you'll see how much more gently, evenly and efficiently it works than your fingers ever could. And for the first time, my string ends are cut right down to the peg without losing any traction -- just like a floor model. :) If you're at all interested in what this thing does, buy one. It would be worth three times the price.

If the product received was the same as the one shown in the photograph, it would have been an excellent tool. What you truly receive is a cheap plastic (not resin impregnated) handle with scallops in the side of it which weaken it even more. Notice the one in the picture has no scallops. Instead of the cutter being made of fine tool steel, as it appears in the photograph, it is constructed of stamped sheet metal with a high chromium content. This means the tool will wear out rather quickly. In conclusion, this tool would only be good for a couple of years at best before it would have to be replaced. Planet Waves claims it has a lifetime warranty, but I'm sure they don't honor that warranty. If they did, they'd lose too much money. This device was never designed to last a lifetime. This will become immediately apparent when you take it out of the box. Overall, a huge let down. I would have paid twice the price if it had been constructed as shown in the photograph.

                A friend of mine handed me one during a performance break when I needed to change strings on my acoustic, and just in time, as the break was very short, so I decided to order one for myself: very nice tool to have!
