Introducing Fender Play — online lessons, only from Fender. Our guided curriculum allows you to learn hundreds of songs that teach the skills and techniques needed to play guitar.

Roadie Tuner


Whether you’re a beginner just learning to play guitar, or a seasoned veteran who has seen his share of road gigs, the Roadie Tuner ($80) is just the tool you need to perfect your craft.

This automated robotic tuner will literally tune your guitar (or any other stringed instrument with geared pegs) for you, thanks to its sensors that are three times more accurate than the human ear. It will tune your guitar faster than most experienced players, helps you wind and unwind your strings, and will even let you quickly switch between tunings.

Use the included iOS app to remember tuning settings, save custom tunes, visualize your tune, and keep track of the quality of your strings.

Gibson Min-ETune


Min-ETune is a compact, battery-powered robot tuner that tunes your Gibson guitar in seconds—and delivers 80-100 tunings on one charge. Adjust the tuning pegs manually, turn on the Min-ETuneTM to tune all six strings to perfect pitch automatically, or select any of 12 popular alternate tunings (including six you can program yourself). You can even adjust your guitar’s tunings to match other instruments.


Available on a wide range of Gibson guitars so you can find one that is just right for you. A guitar with Min-ETune feels the same, looks the same (the unit mounts onto the back of your guitar’s headstock), and plays the same. But most importantly, it sounds the same—Min-ETuneTM works by tuning the physical strings, not by digital trickery that degrades your tone.

Save time and money in the studio, keep the flow going onstage, enhance your creativity with new tunings, and more. You take care of the playing—we’ll handle the tuning.
