SOURCE: My AG6 tuner its wrong

Your Fender tuner is crystal controlled and if you set it for A440 Hz, it will be far more accurate than any computer program can generate. Most of these tuners have the ability to be set at different reference pitches. If your guitar intonation doesn't match at the 12th fret, then you have a guitar setup problem, not the tuner. The intonationation is set at the bridge if you have a bridge with individual adjustments.

How to operate an acoustic fender electric guitar Fishman tuner


If it's the same as mine, the tuner has a little clothespin clip. You clip that on to your guitar's headstock and turn it around till you can see the screen while picking strings. The tuner picks up vibrations through the headstock and with it's microphone and it tells you what it hears. The little needle tells you the note and if the string you're plucking is below that note, above that note or right on. You have to figure out if you're in the right octave on your own.

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.

Is he tuner supposed to light up green when the string is correctly tuned?


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 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.
