    I personally would rather support the guitar at the neck while working on it as opposed to the very edge of the headstock. Supporting it that way just looks like a bad idea to me.

    They don't list any specs for the tuner, but I'm going to guess it's also probably not accurate enough to set intonation. That's a pass for me.

    Still a cool idea, though.

    I think that would be great for setups. I use my current clip on to set intonation, so it should be fine.

    The accuracy you would get from this novelty tuner is no where near what you would want on a workbench for setups.

    Nahhh

    I like my guitar pretty flat on the bench.
    I would trip over the tripod while walking on my bench

    Wait, what? You walk on your workbench? I'm way too stiff to climb up there any more!

    Hahaha I don't have a workbench I use my table

    I'm a drama queen full of lies, misinformation and Missy Elliott.

    Well, that's better, walking on the table is much safer. Just don't expect an invitation to dinner at our house.

    And yes, supporting the neck makes SO MUCH more sense...

    Press on the tip of the headstock with a tuner on and see what happens

    I already do this with a cradle and clip on tuner and probably cost much less

    Eb has a history of making some stupid accessories. Not all of them of course but a few every now and then.
