    I bought the polytune, use it on both guitar and mandolin. As others have said, the 'polytune' feature only works on guitar. I personally don't think that feature adds all that much value anyway. One...

    Re: Tools that you use.

    If you are talking about setup work, the other indispensable tool in my personal opinion is the StewMac String Spacing Gauge. I can't imagine slotting a nut without it.

    Fantastic, and thanks for posting this. Mr. Stiernberg is THE MAN, for sure. Harmonica player is awesome, too - when I heard the first notes I thought maybe Toots Thielemans was sitting in.
