Overall: Works great! Very convenient and accurate! Even worked on fellow-musician's trombone, so I'm sure it'd work great on any instrument that generates vibration. I did have a difficult time getting a reading on the low E of my solid body when placed on the headstock.

Overall: No instructions needed, if you can't use this one then you will need to take your guitar to shop for tuning. If you break the head of this unit, then you were too rough with it. Excellent tuner for any price.

Overall: This tuner works well if you have a guitar. If you have an electric bass guitar, that is another story. You won't be able to tune at all, except for maybe the high g string. I snapped the low E string, because it wouldn't accurately tell me what note I was tuned at. It would not pick up a low E note.I wouldn't recommend it at all if you have a bass.
