If you could only have one guitar tool on a desert island, what would it be???
Well, for me it would be the Daddario/Planet Waves Pro-Winder, and I would recommend you consider this for your desert island tool as well. This thing is an unassuming accessory that has saved my butt on numerous occasions.
Usually, when you change strings you need the winder and the wire cutters, which is no big deal at home, but when you need them both in a pinch often times one goes mysteriously missing.
The pro winder is a string winder, but it has the string cutter built in, and it actually works… it cuts the string!!! It’s not just an object shaped like a wire cutter, it does the job very well. So be sure to check these out if you have never seen them before. If you get one make sure to keep it in your case or gig bag… it will definitely save you in a bind.
