I had been thinking that it would be nice to have a Fretboard to practice finger placement and build callouses on my finger tips as I am a new guitar player. Then I saw this device and ordered it right away. My only negatives is that it came without any instructions, and I thought it would be nice to have a slot to put the tuning Allen Wrench somewhere on the fretboard. Other than that it does everything I was looking for.

This would be better if the cover locked in place when you are playing. Since it doesn't, every time you try to slide up the neck the cover starts to close. So if you want to just play simple chords to work your calouses, great. but any other use is really limited by the closing cover. Also the string adjustment is poorly crafted. It is designed to be changed from the exterior with an Allen wrench, but the quality is so poor the holes don't line up. So you have to use a screw driver to open the cover to make the adjustments. Anybody try traveling on an airline with a screwdriver lately? Yeah. Thats a problem.

Unusable

By S

from Tampa, FL

Comments about PocketStrings 6 Fret:

This thing is terrible, in my opinion. I tried tuning it with my snark and it took forever to get all of the strings even close to tuned...you have to use an allen wrench. And then when I put the cover back on, the whole thing went (way) out of tune again. I can't use it. It's cheap and the low E string is dampened all the time by the plastic covering. Going in the garbage.

    Comments about PocketStrings 6 Fret:

    I look at this as a way to practice. I work all day and cannot bring my guitar, but I could practice fretting, changing chords, building calluses... Why does everyone have to be so critical. This is a practice tool, not an instrument. Try being nice, it feels good.

    Comments about PocketStrings 6 Fret:

    Perfect for practicing chord changes and speed of changes. This can be taken almost anywhere, and is affordable. A little flimsy, but let's face it, it's a cheap plastic overseas product. It's not made to perform with at a concert. It's not designed to be tuned, it's designed to assist in building and keeping calluses, learning chords, and practicing chord changes, and doing so quietly. If you want a tunable fretboard, they make a device called a "guitar".

    Great for building calluses

      Cons

        Best Uses

        • Calluses

        Comments about PocketStrings 6 Fret:

        This is a great tool for building even calluses on your fingertips. I keep mine at work at use it when I'm reading reports or when I'm at home watching TV.

        I see others complaining that they can't tune the strings which is kind of strange. If you want to practice finger placement with sound then just pick up a guitar. I suppose you could use this to learn chords and practice shifts, but I wouldn't recommend it for anything other than working on those calluses when you are away from your guitar.

          Perfect travel tool to allow a guitarist to practice chords and keep fingers limber while re-enforcing chord and scale pattern learning. It's not meant to be played, if you want to hear the music, try carrying around a guitar with you.....

            I love this PRACTICE TOOL! As I read the other reviews I am struck with the thought that the education system in this country has clearly failed many hopeful musicians out there. This is only meant to be used to practice finger placement and improve muscle memory during down time when one is away from their guitar (the one that sound comes from). Great product I recommend to anyone who can understand the basic concept of practice.

            I never used it. I was mislead by the video and thought this actually plays like a guitar. This is only to practice finger placement, it does not play anything, zero sound, no strumming.

              Quiet practice

              Comments about PocketStrings 6 Fret:

              Not quite what I expected. I'd 5 star it if the pick channel ran the full length. In this case, you're fretted for the first 6 frets but the picking position relative to fingering position is as though you're picking above the 12th... but on wide frets. It's odd but useful.
