I wouldn't recommend this product. Although it provides the basic tools you need for a restring or little fixes in a single, Swiss Army-style contraption, it's not very easy to use. If you're not careful when you use the peg winder, you can scratch up your guitar. Also, the wire cutters on mine are dull, and don't cut smaller gauge strings. The Guitar Gizmo does have its positives. The litte led flashlight is handy, and it includes all the allen wrenches you need. But I still think you're better off with a kit that has separate tools.
I made the mistake of buying the Guizmo over the other tool based on the price. Right from brand new, the flashlight attachment did not work, and the hex keys are all malformed and do not fit any guitar that I've tried them on. I'm afraid to try the string winder for fear that it will snap off while stringing a guitar. The case seems decent, and the pliers are ok, but hardly worth $20. It isn't worth the time or fuel to return this tool to the store to exchange it for another Guizmo.
I bought this right before I went off to college, thinking that I'd invested in a good tool to repair my guitar if the need should ever come up, such as broken strings. I was wrong. The only thing I've really used on this guizmo is the string winder, which bought seperately is really cheap. I thought the pliers would be helpful too, but as it turns out, the pliers get stuck when its closed all the way. the allen wrenches are too small for my guitar, so I have no use for them. All in all, I basically spent $20 on a string winder.
