Tuner Won't Acknowledge Sound


Before turning the unit on, press the calib/batt button to check the battery condition.
The Fender AG6 only responds when the strings pitch is within a certain frequency range. If the guitars tuning is not within that range or if your installing new strings, first connect the guitar to the AG6 with a cord that you know to be in good working condition and turn the AG6 on. Then starting with the low E string (the thickest one), loosen the tuning peg to a point well below the standard tuning for that string. Then slowly tighten the peg as you strike the string repeatedly. When the strings frequency, comes within range you will see the 6E light glow and the needle will begin to deflect. When the needle reaches zero it is in tune. Do the remainder of the strings the same way then go back and recheck each a second time. If you have a tuning fork, you can use it to tune by ear then re-tune and maintain it with the AG6
Remember to always stretch then re-tune new strings several times.
If the AG6 does not respond even after checking the condition of the battery and the cord that connects the guitar to the tuner, the problem could be inside the AG6 with a bad connection on the board. Try moving the cord as you strike a string that you know is close to being in tune. Again a tuning fork would be helpful.

Guitar tuning peg seems like it might be broken it will tighten the string to a certain point then it clicks and its completely loose again...I'm new to guitar so I don't know If this is normal


It seems like you wound and tightened your string on the tuning peg loosley. Try wounding the string at least 4-5 times around the peg after you pass the wire though it and then after winding pass it through the hole again. Tighten well.
If that doesn't work your peg might be broken, but looking at it on the video seems that it's not, even though you can't see it clearly.
Try tightening the screws on the peg, since there's a lot of tension on the highest string and it might cause the peg to click back because the tension is too high and it's loose.

The strings won't stay tightened


Common problem... You need to use a tiny bit of peg drops where the peg goes into the wood of the peg box. Here is a YouTube video...

I am re-stringing my Fender 140sce and every time I begin to tune a new string up, the peg pops up. Do I keep pressure on it to try and keep it in place until it is fully in tune, or is this out of the...


It is a little tricky, but you have to kind of pre-form the ball end of the string so it tucks under the ledge of the hole it goes into. Then put peg in and as you do pull up on the string slightly so the pre-formed ball end is caught under the ledge. Make sure the slot is toward the neck direction and the string seats in it, Also once the string is seated, kind of preform the string over the edge of the hole as the string is started to be tightened.

I have no instructions. how do i use it? i want a detailed answer please.


Clamp it to the headstock of your guitar just like in the picture. Press the power button. Pluck one string on your guitar, the screen will light up with the corresponding note (standard tuning from largest string to smallest string is E A D G B E). The arrows will indicate whether the string is sharp or flat (too high or too low). More left arrows indicate that the string is too low, too many arrows on the left indicate that it is too high. Turn the tuning peg, slowly, on the corresponding string until you've got 6 solid arrows.

I just got this guitar. I pull the tuner control, strum the string and after the guitar tune itself, the G string still out of tune??


Are you sure you are struming the G string at the right point? One might be able to fool the tuner by triggering a harmonic on the strings or being too aggressive in the strum.

I would pull the peg and see if the string CAN be tuned manually. It is possible the G string is bad or somebody put the wrong string on there.

Remember that strings can be within about 10% of the breaking tension when in tune.

Also it appears that the thing can detune itself to nearby keys. Make sure you have the dial set correct when you pull it out to tune.

I have an Ibanez Art 100 and I am having trouble tuning the G string. It seems to sound sour and either a little flat or sharp.


Trace the string from the body to the tuning peg, making sure that there isn't anything rubbing and that the string is routed properly. Compare it's routing to your other strings. When you get to the tuning peg, note how many tines the string goes around the peg. It should go around at least three times (more is better, to a point), and wrap above and below the tail of the string to friction lock it to the peg. If it isn't locked in, the string will loosen itself over a period of time, making it impossible to keep it tuned.
Hope this helps! Regards, --W/D--

String peg required for washburn d10b

A new type of peg that makes it easier to change strings!

Either that or most guitar shops stock string pegs, Just ask at the counter .. .If they don't have them and can't get any in then they are not a real guitar shop in my opinion
