Abstract of corresponding document: WO8707068
A tuning aid for a stringed instrument such as a guitar includes a pick-up (14) (which is preferably independent of any pick-up included in the guitar), an electronic circuit which compares the frequency of signals produced by pick-up (14) with a range of stored digital signals representing frequencies, and a display (15) which indicates when a string is in tune. A single embodiment lights a lamp (15) under the string when it is in tune. A more complex embodiment has several different modes of operation and the pick-up has a separate winding for each string, selector means included in the electronic circuit operating to select the winding associate with a string which is vibrating.
