Automatic String Winder
For a luthier, a player with multiple guitars, or anyone else who has to restring frequently, an automatic string winder is almost a necessity. Cranking the tuning pegs to get the guitar’s strings up to tension (or unwinding them before removing) is the most tedious part of the whole string changing process, and this drill-like contraption helps to get it done in a fraction of the time. NOTE: This isn’t a beginner’s tool, because you need to know when to stop tightening the string so that it doesn’t snap. But for an experienced guitarist/guitar tech who restrings guitars often, this is worth its weight in gold.
